    I was gifted a Samsung Trend (GT-S7580) to replace my old HTC and I've been really happy with the phone and OS (4.2.2) however one thing has been driving me crazy.

    Every hour - on the hour - my phone vibrates once, as if I've received an email or text message. I did some research and turned off motions and gestures which hasn't helped. I became really anal about clearing any notifications as soon as they appeared, but the phone vibrates even without anything in the notifications bar. It seems to be purely a reminder that an hour as passed, for every hour of every day and every night.

    This is driving me crazy, it's not only annoying but it periodically wakes me up. I would really appreciate any advice on how to turn off this function.

    I don't remember any setting on my GS4, GS5 or Tab 3 that had to do with any kind of notification at every hour.

    Have you done a factory reset?
    I'd rather deal with that than a vibration every hour.

    If you lower the volume past vibrate to silence, does it still happen?

    I've only had it for a week and it's done it the whole time, but I'll give it a shot. There's nothing on there to lose, haha

    This phone doesn't seem to have a silent option, it just goes from very quiet to vibrate and there's nothing after that. I'm sure if I completely disabled the vibrate function all together it would probably stop, but I would rather my phone just worked, haha

    If you just got it a week ago, why not exchange it for another?
    Show them (place where you got it) the issue.
