    This is for the Spring Galaxy Nexus. Prior to the 4.2.1 upgrade, I had my gmail set to show a notification in the notification bar when I received a new email, make a sound and not vibrate. If I put my phone on vibrate, I would just get the icon in the notification bar, no sound and no vibrate.

    Now, after the 4.2.1 upgrade, when my phone is on vibrate, when I receive a gmail message, even though the gmail app is set to not vibrate, my phone still vibrates.

    Is anyone else seeing this behavior?

    the system will vibrate when it would normally send a sound. not sure why google hasn't thought of this but that is just the way it is.

    Well that sucks. I liked the behavior in 4.1 much better. If I tell an app not to vibrate, I don't want it to vibrate, even if the phone is on vibrate. Oh well, I guess I will just have to live with it.
