    Default New Email Notification while on Call, how to shut off vibrate?

    While on a call, my phone vibrates whenever I get a new email. I have all notifications while on call set to off. I can get 10 emails in a 5 minute call so it is maddening to have the phone vibrating the entire time.

    Can someone clue me in on a setting to stop this behavior?

    Thanks.

    Not sure which email app you're using but in Gmail there is a setting within the email app to enable or disable vibration with notifications.

    Using the stock app. Don't want to disable vibrate though, just want it to stop vibrating while I am on a call.

    There is a setting under call settings with a check box for turning on alerts during calls. Presumably, it sure turn off those alerts when not checked. Unfortunately, it does not work. I get extremely frustrated when on a call with someone, I receive and email and get the vibrate notification and they ask "what in the world was that?" I, too, want to leave my vibrate notifications on, just not when I am on a call. if there is another way to stop them, I am interested too.

    Same thing happens to me. The "turn on alerts" button is UNCHECKED and the phone still vibrates during calls. I do not want to turn off vibration. ONLY when I am on a call. Good word you used, nyc_rock... this is MADDENING!

    I ended up using Tasker. It is terribly unintuitive, but once I figured it out it has worked fine. It turns off notifications while the phone is "off hook" and then turns them back on once the phone is idle.

    Anyone found a way to correct this issue aside from buying tasker? Huge pain in the...
