    My phone will not vibrate on vibrate mode. It will not vibrate on the sound mode (which is what I have it set on). When i get a text or notification it has to be on full volume to make a sound or silent. It will not vibrate at all, not for a call or for a text.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does it ever vibrate? Like if you power off completely, then power back on, phones that can vibrate will usually vibrate once as you see the bootscreen appear.

    Or how about the keyboard? Does the vibration work with each keypress if you have that setting turned on?

    If none of these work, then it is likely that the vibration motor is broken. Remember that it's essentially the only moving part inside the phone, so it's not surprising that it is prone to breakdown.

    I agree with B. Diddy, sounds like the motor is shot. Here's a nice app to test all the "bells and whistles" of your phone...

    Welcome to Android Central! I suggest you call up a cellphone repair shop and ask them for the general price range.

    Hi. "other guy" here. If you actually tap the check mark then it will open to another screen where you can force the vibrator to vibrate. The check marks are just there on the menu screen to tell you which tests are compatible with your particular device.

    In Samsung service centre, the vibrator motor costs 400/- and its warranty is 1month and for the service they charge 150/-.
    In my case the problem is much severe and the engineer said that they need to retrack the connections, for that they charged 400/-

    My phone vibrates whenever I get a email and when I tap the keys on the keyboard but when I get a text message or a notification it will not vibrate. I reset my phone and it started vibrating again, and then it all of a sudden stopped vibrating whenever I got a notification. How can I fix it?

    Isn't that a bit excessive? I payed around 250 for my phone... I might as well just spend that money on a newer, better device.

    Actually he is talking about Indian currency. Which is relatively 1$=68rupees. 400 means 6$
