    Okay, so here are the issues I've seen reported (and/or have myself) with vibrate on the Hero since the 2.1 update so far...

    - Phone dialer keys ALWAYS cause phone to vibrate, even if BOTH the haptic feedback and the dialing key tones are turned off in the settings menus.

    - Phone is FORCED to ALWAYS do a short vibrate upon connecting a call...no apparent way to turn this off

    Any others?

    Other than those two you listed, no, I have been able to find no other vibrating issues. Those two are extremely annoying, however. Its too had HTC didn't give up the option to turn those off. Way to screw the pooch HTC.

    I saw other people post that gmail and handcent won't vibrate with 2.1, is this true?

    This was also present in 1.5 after the MR. It is not a 2.1 issue.

    I think that's a pretty big problem and makes me hold back on upgrading. I think I'd rather still have the problem of no MMS on 1.5 than no vibrate on 2.1 :(

    Just tested handcent and gmail and both are vibrating for me. Im not sure whats going on with some people phones but Im not having any of these issues alot of people are having.

    I get no haptic feedback at all now. I've turned on every setting I can find, but I never get haptic feedback. Not on the home screens, not in the dialer, not with Swype. :( Tried rebooting a few times, still no love.

    I'm pretty sure I had it at one point after upgrading to 2.1, but not now.

    Anyone else run into this?

    yes this is annoying and you get a vibrate right when the phone starts calling.
