Vibrating notification in silent PLEASE HELP

    I've had my galaxy note a couple of months. I always have it on silent at work - silent (mute) rather than the vibrate option. Recently for e-mail notifications it has started vibrating even in this mode. I'm not sure if this is a setting I've altered although I'm unaware of changing anything. I've been selecting this from the pull-down menu at the top of the screen.

    Is there a simple solution to this or is my phone broken do you think?

    Hi Mattdb

    Have you tried Settings/Sound/Vibration Intensity? Also, there is there a tick mark in 'Sound and vibration'

    What do I do to make my phone ring AND vibrate. Where is this "tick mark" found for sound and vibration. how to I get to choose that. The only thing I've found was going into settings/sound/vibration/and choosing "only when not in silent mode. Is there a faster way to get to that option of having it ring and vibrate?

    It is in Settings/Sound and is the 6th item down. I don't know of a fast way of getting to it but there is probably a widget for it somewhere!

    I have the same problem on my S4 Kitkat. I've had the phone for some time but this issue started recently. The phone is set to mute at night, but every email and Whatsapp message causes it to vibrate. It drives me crazy. I have checked every suggested solution but nothing works.
