    Last night my phones vibrate just stopped working. I noticed the soft keys weren't vibrating, went to my settings and checked that haptic feedback was on, and it was. Tried texting and calling myself but still no luck. I factory reset the phone hoping it was an app I had just installed or something, but it wasn't. Still no luck with getting this phone to vibrate anymore. I've had it 3 days so far. Should I contact boost and try to get a replacement or has anyone experienced this?

    Just to make sure.......did you go into settings < sound and make sure that the Vibrate settings under General are set to your preference?

    Ive had a Android phone not vibrate after a fall down carpeted stairs. Impact can affect the strategically mounted imbalancing weight placed on the simple and tiny flywheel motor which causes our Warp's to vibrate. Ive had my Warp since Nov. if anything, it vibrates too much. On every outgoing call for that matter...

    Don't assume that if someone doesn't know how to do something they didn't try to figure it out. I've been dealing with obscure computer settings (and what are our phones but teeny-tiny computers?) for nearly 40 years. All my dialer settings relating to vibration are off. It still vibrates when I initiate a call.

    Here is my supposition for this issue:
    1, no H/W issue that say the motor still work in a stable scenario(eg.: initiate a call)

    2,So just relate to S/W's stability. but its very few to find the software stable issue reflected in the forum. So mostly its a setting issue.

    3, If someone's motor cannot work in any scenario. Ok, I'd like to say please contact with ZTE or Boost for repair or replacement, absolutely the motor is broken already.

    Hope can help somes.

    Ok, if all setting are off still vibrate in any conditions, please ask for repair.

    just wondering if there are anymore suggestions for the original question. my phone is still not vibrating and i'm certain that it isn't from taking a fall and my vibrate settings are on. in fact, now i cant take the phone out of silent mode, neither from the sound settings menu nor the side volume button. are there any other possible reasons or ways to fix this? thank you for any suggestions.

    My phone wasn't vibrating for text, and the solution was :
    go the messaging app, press the settings button, choose settings, vibrate (3rd from bottom), and choose anything but never.

    When you factory reset using the most recent handset software update tool from ZTE this setting is set like this. Don't know why, but it is.

    Dial *983*86# and tell us if the phone vibrates.

    wat is it

    Its a factory vibration test. If it doesnt vibrate when you dial that then you have a hardware defect. If it does then it is software and you either have a setting wrong or need to reset to factory.

    said the call cant be completed.

    But besides that since this seems to be a common problem do they replace it? wats boots policy?
  21. Woodstock77

    You arent doing it right. It should pop up a white screen and the vibrate should go on and off repeatedly until you hit the back button. Just enter *983*86# into the dial pad and do not press call.

    I've contacted ZTE's customer support, and they suggested to use the 'Online Upgrade Tool' at the zteusa's site; found under the ZTE Warp product, and then the product support tab.

    I'll try it when I get home but that's what they suggested. I hope this helps!
