    I must be losing my mind. For the life of me I can no longer figure out how to put my phone on vibrate. I use to be able to toggle my volume button down to switch to vibrate. I tried to do it today and there is no longer an option. Just silent and various ringer volumes.

    What am I missing?

    if you hold volume down it should go to vibrate. mine does.

    Okay I think I'm on to something here. When i go into the volume control is has an vibrate option of always, never, Only in Silent mode, and Only when not in Silent mode.

    I like to put my phone on silent at night and don't want to get vibrations during the night. I put the phone to vibrate "Only when not in Silent mode" and the vibration option goes away. When I put it to "always" the vibration, silent, and volumes options then appear. Whats the deal?

    Did you ever figure out how to fix this? I have run into the same issue where my volume rocker goes from silent to lowest ringer and never shows vibrate.

    And it never vibrates for texts, even when I set it to always.

    settings/sound set it to vibrate "only in silent mode"

    that is what mine is set too. I then get the three options when holding down the volume. Silent/Vibrate/ then volume up.

    for vibrate on text message. Open the text messaging app. Settings/ scroll down to notifications/click on vibrate and select "always"

    You could also download Volume Control + from the market. Its one of the first I always load because it allows me to set individual volumes for ringer, notifications, media....

    This did work, thank you! I can now put my phone on vibrate instead of just ring.

    But now I have another issue. So in vibrate mode, when I get a phone call my phone vibrates like expected. For some reason though when in vibrate mode my other app notifications (text, gtalk, gmail, etc

    Try Ring Toggle by Swwomm, been using it for at least a yr now and never had any issues.

    Do I really need to download a app to get the vibrate to work correctly?

    I really like using Widgetsoid because it lets you add toggles to your notification screen (i.e pull down the bar and there they are). This bar can be customized to have less or more toggles and in any order. The Sound toggle lets me toggle Sound on, Vibrate Mode, and Silent Mode.

    you shouldn't

    i get vibrate notifications on text messages when i have mine turned on within the app. Let me set it to vibrate for gmail and gtalk and see what happens.

    there's easier and faster method to toggle between vibrate/nosound/sound
    simply click volume up or down then click on phone icon when volume pops up.
    it change to vibrate mode.
    if u want no sound, just click volume down after that.

    The easiest way to change from vibrate to silent is to just bring your volume all the way down so it's in vibrate mode. Then let up and the push down one more time on the volume down. It should then switch to silent. Then once you push up...it will go back to vibrate...then allow you to adjust the volume.
