    Anyone know how to find the option to stop this vibration?
    It started when I upgraded to 2.1 and can't find the option to turn the it off.
    I know when I'm calling someone, I don't need a vibration.

    I considered that an annoyance, albeit a minor one, not long after the OTA came to my phone.

    I've adapted to it as a sort of "confirmation" that the call has successfully started.

    I did seek out a way to disallow it, but never found that.

    I actually like the buzz. I use Google Voice for all my calls so it takes a little while to connect, and the buzz lets me know when the call is going through.

    But I do agree that there should be an option to disable it in case you don't want it.

    Just in case you don't want that quick vibration directly in your ear...

    Yeah, it seems like a bit of an oversight on the part of the 2.1 developers.

    I'm wondering if they even considered a toggle for that feature. If not, I'd be curious as to their logic.. likely along the lines of feeling that it is a very clever feature and who would not want such a clever feature. ;)

    i think if its up to your face it wont do it. i tried this the other day. if something is in front of the proximity sensor it wont do it. someone try it, it might work. it does for me.

    yea, the vibe is just a reminder to let you know the call connected. if its up to your ear then you know when the call is connected because you can hear it. this phone is smarter than we give it credit for.

    Good find, rick.

    The feature is actually a practical one, meant to give an indication of the call starting when the user is not listening at the ear piece.

    I love the vibration feature. As others have stated, it lets me know when the call has connected.
  13. I personally think it's one of the dumbest "features" added to 2.1. Hook us up with LWP or something more people would like. or give a way to turn it off!.

    BTW did the OTA for 2.1 stop yet? we need a patch sent out ASAP
