Is it just me or does your iphone vibrate when a text or mail comes in, whilst on the phone. So annoying makes me wanna chuck the phone out the window. Hopefully i just dont know about the option to turn vibrate off whilst on a call? If not *** man? Surely this is such a basic thing to sort out?

    If you have the alerts set to vibrate, then they will vibrate.

    If you have them set to sound, then they will sound.

    Sorry.

    My 3G always did this, my iPhone 4 has always done this.

    Are you talking about the original iPhone under version 1 didn't do this?

    Then you either turned it off in settings or it was defective. But it wasn't added in 4.2.1.

    Thrilled for you. Mine always did (and played the text/mail tone) which I like because often I'm often waiting for the message.

    Mine does... Wish it didn't, but it's not the end of the world. Just irritating.

    I've left feedback for Apple about this. Every OS update they've had so far. They're on iOS 5, which means I've left them at least 10+ comments about this one. By far one of the most annoying features there is.

     

    People ask "Why does it matter, it's a short vibration"... but think about this:

     

    • You're on a call with a client, and you really need to think about what they're saying. Or maybe what you are saying.
    • Your colleagues start a long, multi-person email thread.
    • Every time you get an email in your inbox, your phone buzzes on your ear
    • Over the next 15 minutes of the client call, your phone is buzzing on your ear every 15-30 seconds.
    • Because you're constantly having your train of thought broken and your ear vibrated, your client thinks you sound like an idiot.

     

    THAT is why the length of the buzz is not a solution.

    I agree it's very annoying. Has Apple responded to this?
