    Im recently having a problem with the vibrate function with text messages. When getting a new text, it acts as if its on silent and not vibrate or anything but when i receive a phone call it vibrates. So i download Handscent to see if it vibrates with that app and it didnt. I have been throuh all the settings it seems like and I still cant get a vibrate with new sms messages. Any help?

    is notifications turned off on the stock messages app?

    do you have a profile app like EAR or quick profiles on the phone?

    Same problem here. Using handcent and no vibrate with message, have tried all of the above suggested.

    What ROM are you using? This hasn't happened to me using Bugless beast and I haven't seen any serious bugs(maybe even any bugs at all) on this ROM so if you have a recent backup you should load it and install BuglessBeast.

    If not just try rebooting the phone a couple times, I don't really know what to tell you.

    Bugless Beast? Try restoring a back up and then installing it again.

    I noticed the same issue today when I put my phone on Vib. Text was not vibrating. I only use the stock messaging app but was able to fix it.
    1. Open a text message
    2. Select "Menu" then "Settings"
    3. Scroll till you see "vibrate" and make sure it is checked.

    Mine wasn't and once I did and put the phone on Vibrate then the text messages also vibrated. Hope that helps.:cool:

    yeah that the first thing that I did was go to that option and check it...If i didnt upgrade the os to 2.1 i would call them for them to send me a new one.

    OK just making sure, allot of people don't realize there are 2 separate settings for vibrate. One for global and one for the stock messaging app itself.

    You're not going crazy man. I've been having the exact same issue. I have no idea how to fix it and have tinkered around with it a BUNCH to no avail. If I figure something out that works, I'll let you know.

    yeah man def do that, i guess we are going to have to wait till the official 2.1 comes out and see if that fixes it and if not then Verizon will be gettin a call for a replacement because I only had this phone not even a week yet.
