    As the title says my phone will not vibrate at all. No haptic feedback when entering phone numbers, none for texting, and none for notifications or calls. I've tried everything I can think of. I've tried going back to the original 2.1 update vs the OTA update. I've tried a soft reset, and also going into the phone menu to do a factory reset. I've even tried the sound manager app trick and still no luck :thinking: Any ideas on what might be the problem?

    Have you tried pulling the battery? Try that before you do a factory wipe.

    I have not experienced this issue. I hope pulling the battery helps.

    Is the phone new or did this just start, either way I'd probably call it a defect and try to get a new one outta sprint.

    It's new but I went ahead and called Sprint this morning and they sent me a replacement. Hopefully this won't happen again
