    In my Gmail app, I have the "Also vibrate when email arrives" box checked. When I have my sounds on, it both makes a notification sound AND vibrates when I receive an email. When I have vibrate-only mode on, it only vibrates.

    However, if I uncheck the box, it does NOT vibrate when my phone is in vibrate-only mode.

    Is there any setting that causes Gmail to only vibrate in vibrate-only mode? I do NOT want it to vibrate when I have sounds turned on.

    Thanks.

    I haven't found a way to do this. I have tried some 3rd party apps, but nothing so far works. Now, when I want everything to vibrate, I have to turn the ringer to vibrate, then go into gmail (and google voice) and set each to vibrate. It is a pain, but so far that is the only way I know to do it.

    I believe Missed Call can fix the issue. I'm not too sure though.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I figured that something this basic would certainly be available in the native OS without having to install an app. Kind of disappointing that it's not.
