    Hi All,

    My Galaxy S II seems to have an intermittent fault where it some times seems to vibrate very loudly, mainly when on the desk at work.

    Has anyone else noticed this issue on their phones?

    To me it seems like the 'vibration' hardware in the phone is not quite aligned correctly - like its been knocked, as it does not always seem to do this.

    Cheers in advance.

    I have always found that ANY of my phones will be louder on vibrate when sitting on a table or hard surface. The cause the surface it is sitting on the resonate.

    I could accept that if it was all the time, but i dont recall it happening when i first got the phone (a couple of months) ago and some days it seems louder than other days (same desk in work and at home).

    I was going to send an email to Samsung cust services, but cant seem to find an address anywhere!

    is it as loud when it vibrates in your hand.
    if not, then its the sound of the phone vibrating on the desk surface.

    No, its not BUT, a prime example was the 2 emails i have just received from your 2 replies, the first email which arrived, the vibrate was really loud, the reply that has just come into my inbox, i hardly heard, it is very strange indeed.

    It all depends on how it is sitting on the table to make it resonate more loudly. Just place you phone on a padded surface on the table and see how much more quiet it is.

    If it is buzzy loudly while in your hand, the the vibrator in the phone has come loose and is vibrating against the case inside the phone, I have see this happen before but the SG2 is so thin I can not imagine there being enough room for it to become loose.

    You phone WILL make different sounds depending on the surface it is sitting on. Just picking it up and placing it in a different location can change the way it vibrates on a table or other hard surface.

    If you lay it on a book or magazine you should hardly hear the phone vibrate at all!

    as a hard of hearing person - vibration alerts for most of the functions on a phone are v impt. Even for those folk whos hearing is unimpared - it is essential that hearing and physical prompts need to opertate TOGETHER

    At the mo with the new samsung phones coming

    the 2s is on offer and as an upgrading customer can take even better advantage of a good price.

    But - in your opinion is the level of vibration adequate for a hearing impared person - the only comparison i have is that vibration alert of my wife Samsungs Tocco - would appreciate any comment - bearing nin mind everything is relative to ones experience and level of hearing
