    Are you sure that you checked vibrate within the settings for Messaging?
    Messaging>menu button>settings>scroll to vibrate then add check mark

    Are you getting any type of vibration - i.e with phone calls or haptic? Lastly you are not in silent mode, aye?

    If you feel it that might be all you get, it seems to be working. The vibrate on this phone is somewhat paltry. I was unimpressed. If you to configure it for SMS you can use an app such as Handcent or SMS Popup which will allow you to change the way it vibrates - example Normal, Long Vibrate, Multiple Short, Multiple Long or Custom. Its quite a bit better doing it this way, at least its helpful for sms/mms if you are looking for that.

    Hope it helps

    I feel like that would help, thanks.
    but I am not very technological so could you please explain how to do that?

    I had the same issue with my captivate...the vib worked on everything but sms. I ended up installing Handcent and the vib started working again!
