Unable to turn off vibrate for sms with android 4.2
I just upgraded to android 4.2 yesterday for my HTC One X. I keep my phone in vibrate mode at work and turn off SMS vibration so that it will only vibrate when I receive a call. Ever since update to 4.2 it vibrates whenever I receive a text message even though "Vibrate" is still unchecked in Messages > Settings > Notifications. What can I do to have my phone only vibrate for calls and not text messages?
Any help is much appreciated!

Re: Unable to turn off vibrate for sms with android 4.2
Set the sound to nothing. It's a change in the way android works. If you have a sound notification set then it will vibrate when in vibrate mode.
The thought is, if you want a sound notification of the alert, you also would want a vibrate notification if it's set to vibrate. Otherwise one would just set their phone to silent to not get any notifications.
It's related to this change in the Android code:

(Unless the notification specifies no ringtone AND no
vibration, in which case it will remain silent.)
