If this is a post somewhere excuse me, but I've seaeched and couldn't find what I was looking for. Is anyone having a problem with the vibrate setting vibrating when notifications are received such as texts and email? My phone vibrates when I receive a call, but it doesn't vibrate when I receive any notifications. I was using Gosms for text messaging but unistalled it to see if that was the problem, it still didn't vibrate when I received a text. I called Verizon and after a hard reset they suggested that I exchange the phone for another one, so I did, and while I was in the Verizon store I checked the test Bionic and the vibrate worked on it for text notification just fine. Well the new one is doing the same thing as the one I exchanged...Any suggestions?

After searching all morning, I came across a post in the Motorola forum in which the poster downloaded "sound manager" from the market...Voilla!!!...my vibrate now vibrates when I receive notifications (texts and emails)...strange that I had to download an app to activate something my phone should do through its basic sound or notification settings...

Discussed this yesterday here
If you turn vibrate on for text messages it turns it on always, not just when you have your phone on vibrate. If you turn it off it turns it off always, not just when the ringers on.
I downloaded Handcent SMS to get notifications.
TJefferson - mind sharing your settings on Sound Manager which leads to a vibrate notification (only when on silent/vibrate mode?) for texts?I'd bet Cory's arm on it!
I just read my original post over and this sentence should have read: Is anyone having a problem with the vibrate setting not vibrating when notifications are received such as texts and email?...
sorry if I confused you nrk, but thanks for your comments and suggestion...
