Samsung Galaxy s4 still vibrating when getting sms notification, even though I'm on silent mode
I've noticed that when I get a text message in silent mode, my s4 still vibrates (stock phone running android 4.3). I've tried putting the phone into silent mode via 1. the left side volume rocker, 2. via the notification bar's volume button, 3. via the settings->my device->sound panel. Still get vibration.
Using the stock messenger app, I went to its settings->notification settings-> and unchecked the vibrate box. I *still* got text message vibrations when in silent mode.
I found 2 ways to not get vibrations (but they are both flawed):
1. phone settings->my device->sound->vibration intensity->then set notification intensity slider to 'nothing'. But then I don't get text message vibrations in 'vibrate' mode.... I *do* want the phone to vibrate when I specifically put it in vibrate mode....
2. in stock messenger app, settings-> uncheck notifications box. But then no status bar or lock screen notifications for new messages. I *do* want those visual notifications! Just not the vibrations when in silent mode.
Under settings->my device->sound, I've tried both checking and unchecking the 'vibrate when ringing' box. Still vibrates in silent mode.
Lastly, I tried turning on the blocking mode with the 'turn off notifications' box checked. Still get vibrations in mute mode.
I'm at a complete loss for what to do. Can't find solution online. Can anyone here please help me? Thanks in advance!!!
This issue is driving me crazy. I have to change the notification intensity slider for every class and meeting! Arrah!
