    Default Galaxy S4 not vibrating when I receive a message

    I just downloaded the new 4.4.2 software.. If I have a conversation open (in the stock messaging app) my phone won't vibrate if that person texts me. I have to constantly exit every time. Anyone know how to help?

    Go to system settings > sounds and make sure that Vibrate is enabled. Also, be sure to check that Vibrate is enabled for the messaging app.

    I have all of that enabled, I even enabled my two minute warning. It vibrates normally, but if I'm charging my phone my screen doesn't shut off (thats happened ever since I got the phone) and I tend to leave my conversations open and if that person texts me it won't vibrate.
