Help My phone never vibrates....

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?


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.

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.


I have not changed a setting at all and now all of a sudden my vibrate works with ringing. I'm not complaining but what gives?
I get no vibrate for txts/email notifications. If i use stock messaging app, check box to vibrate on alert, it now vibrates and rings. not what i want it to do! minor issue, but quite annoying when i get a txt 2hrs later cuz i missed it while in my pocket. gggrrr
may seem minor to some, but this is a HUGE disappointment for me. I'll have to deal with the vib+ring for now.
