    As I am often in a noisy environment, I need to set my HTC Desire to vibrate. Often, I "missed" the vibrating when someone sends an SMS Text message to me as it was too short and I didn't feel it that quickly enough.

    Is there a method where you can 'extend' the vibrating for, say 15 seconds, rather than 1-2 seconds, before it stops vibrating?

    Is it to do with changing the 'ringtone' under SMS notification? Please advise.

    If there is an app that answers the query, please let us know.

    Ta!

    Get an app called Handcent, you can customise the vibration on that. :)

    Handcent is great as loads of options, although im struggling to get hte best colours for the bubbles :p
    THere is one disadvantage i can find in that MMS come out tiny. None of the User Agents works, so will have to sacrifice that for the customisability of Hancent.
    Its strange as the default MMS app has them the correct size, but puts the large ones as a slideshow, something Handcent doesnt do.

    Smart Vibrator app works well. And you can customize the length and strength of the vibrate. But for it to work properly, the default phone vibrate settings need to be set to off.
