    My Droid never vibrates, ever. No matter if it is set to vibrate only, silent, or max sound. It doesn't vibrate for calls, texts or for anything. I set vibrate on for both, calls and texts - and it never vibrates. I temporarily installed other apps to see if the phone is physically able to vibrate, and it is. I am not sure if I am missing an option, or if there is a software malfunction.

    Does anybody know what the problem could be?

    Do you get haptic feedback when pressing the bottom keys? If not (and haptic is enable in settings) then it sounds like a defective phone.

    Haptic feedback works on the bottom four keys.

    I have the same problem myself, I've checked my settings and they are correct. Just no vibe' with my ring. Oh well I would have trouble feeling it through the case anyways.

    Are you using a home screen modification?

    If it were my Droid I would take it to a Verizon store and have them look at it. May be faulty. I am using home++ if you were asking me :)

    Standard home screen for me, the tactile feedback works just fine as well.

    do you have locale installed?

    Hmmmmmmm. Very interesting. The phone functions perfectly, besides that one "minor" issue. Addons can make it vibrate, so I don't know what exactly the problem is.

    If you have Missed Call running, sometimes that messes with the vibrate. It did for me, so I had to enable vibrate in Missed Call for everything.

    Hmm, let me uninstall it, to see if that changes anything.

    may seem minor to some, but this is a HUGE disappointment for me. I'll have to deal with the vib+ring for now.

    Marcelo M.: Hi, my name is Marcelo M.. How may I help you?
    eric : when i set droid to vibrate, i dont recieve text or email notifications
    Marcelo M.: Yes, that is how the phone works
    eric : on vibrate you cant recieve alerts?
    Marcelo M.: If you go to Sounds & Display
    eric : with droid in my pocket, i will only recieve a vibrate when someone is calling me, i will never know if i get texts or emails
    Marcelo M.: There is a notification ringtone
    eric : yes, i have that option set. however when i change droid to vibrate, i recieve NO notification
    eric : i would just like audio for texts when set on ring, and vibrate for texts when set on vibrate. this isnt a possible feature?
    Marcelo M.: No Sir, I am sorry
    eric : will this be possible on another update? something simple such as this just doenst make sense.
    Marcelo M.: I will have this forwarded to our engineering dept in order to have this corrected in the next software update
    eric : Thank You. Happy holidays!
    Marcelo M.: You too!
