    When I put my phone on vibrate it is to avoid annoying other people. But I feel that the vibration strength on most phones is too high, and although I won't be receiving my Captivate until Friday, I'd like to know if there is an option to do this, with or without root.

    There's a place to change the vibration intensity, but I think it only applies to the haptic feedback. Don't know if it applies to the vibration when ringing or receiving a message or anything like that.

    Unfortunately the only way to adjust vibration is for haptic feedback, not for any notifications you have set using vibrate. This is really frustrating because I have my SMS notification on Vibrate and it even vibrates while I'm on a call; so yesterday I was talking on the phone for business and all of a sudden there was a very loud and strong vibration near the earpiece while an SMS came in.

    Samsung: why does this vibrate while I'm on the phone? It shouldn't vibrate while on a call, very disruptive.

    That is the thing about SAMSUNG , I hate the fact that Vibration in Samsung is very terrible , honestly. I have a problem with the SAMSUNG BEHOLD II , now I am trying to avoid any android or smart phones from Samsung. ( Again, very bad customer service , very bad update ) Same old roots like that SAMSUNG BEHOLD II Problem , now SAMSUNG CAPTIVATE IS the next victim.

    Even though this phone was fast , but it still build from the root of Samsung Wizard interface , bad vibration ( we can't reduce the amount of vibration in samsung - fact) . It only reduces the amount of haptic feedback only . I am fortunate that I can sell back my Samsung Behold II .

    No more SAMSUNG ANDROID , I am going to get HTC ARIA which is a bit smaller screen , but I am confident with its functionality such as phone quality, setting functionality and overall the phone itself is magnificent.
