    The vibration on the ringer is too weak and so I can't feel it and am missing lots of calls. I have read the posts in this forum and others. Aside from the folks who find the vibrate mode too strong (not my experience) I have not seen any post that offers a real solution to this problem.

    Does anyone have one?
    Many thanks in advance

    Phone vibration strength is relative. I too think it is not strong enough and is very quick, but it doesn't bother me. I could be wrong but I don't think this is something that can be resolved with software. Maybe replace the vibration component...

    I constantly miss text messages because I do not feel the vibration with my Hero in an Innocase II and holster. I think the vibration motor is too weak and if it at least could be set to vibrate longer it would help. I wonder if there is a software way to tweak that.

    Many thanks! I would not have found that on The Market. I am going to try it out. It's pretty cool. You can customize your vibrate patterns for SMS and incoming calls with each being different if you want. You make patterns of short buzzes and long buzzes in whatever order and quantity you want. :cool:

    Sounds like someone has a dirty mind...lol.

    But really that sounds like a handy app, might give it a shot.

    i love when people suggest apps that i would never have thought of, it's way better than searching the market and trying to guess.

    I was taking the high road but I knew someone would chime in from the gutter. ;) I downloaded the guy's version but I think the female version has a preset vibration pattern called "who needs a boyfriend?" setting. What ever could that mean??? :D

    It's great. That's why I have been semi-addicted to this forum.

    Has anyone tried this yet? I am missing calls left and right because I never feel my phone vibrating in my pocket.

    Thanks!

    All the app does is adjust how long it vibrates, does nothing for strength, which doesn't help........

    It seems to make the difference for me.
    I loaded it yesterday and today I have been noticing the calls.
    Before this I did not catch any,not one.
