    Question 4.3 Update Has Gone Vibration Crazy

    I just installed the 4.3 update this morning. After installing, my email and facebook (messenger and facebook app) notifications vibrate even though the individual app settings are set NOT to vibrate. This worked fine prior to 4.3.

    In vibrate mode, I only want phone calls and SMS to vibrate.

    In sound mode, I want notification sounds for email, facebook messenger, SMS, and phone. (No sound for facebook comments, tags, etc.)

    It seems as though 4.3 ignores the vibration settings in the app and just vibrates anyway.

    Anyone found a way to fix this and make it work like I mentioned above?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I would give rebooting into recovery and clearing cache a try. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Thanks. Will I lose any data doing that?

    No. You are just clearing system files, not yours.

    I had this problem. I solved it in a way that ONLY removed the vibrate from emails. Emails still made a sound (like I want them to, but you can make them soundless), and texts still vibrate and make sound. I'll put the solution first, then background below (background can be important because different carriers have slightly different Android builds).

    To solve:
    1. Open Gmail app
    2. Click the menu button softkey (in case I have the name wrong, I mean the button to the left of the physical home button)
    3. Click Settings. Here, you should see General Settings, [a list of your gmail account(s)], and About Gmail
    4. Click on an account, it will open to another menu
    5. Click on Inbox sound & vibrate (third option down for me)
    6. On this new menu, look for the following two fields: Sound (leads to a "choose file" option); and Vibrate (a checkbox)
    7. Quick side note: You may have discovered that unchecking Vibrate doesn't actually turn off vibrations. We need to go deeper.
    8. Look at the Sound option. Does it currently say Default ringtone ([your notification tone]) ? If it does, that's the problem.
    9. Click on Sound, then choose the sound you want from the menu (as opposed to leaving it on Default ringtone)
    10. Leave Vibrate unchecked (because everyone likes specificity in their instructions)
    11. Repeat for any other accounts you have
    12. Enjoy the return of a calm pocket



    This way, it should still play sounds when sound is enabled, but will never vibrate. My conjecture as to why this happens: the "default ringtone" is not simply just a ringtone, but also now has the vibrate inherently attached to it (if vibrate is enabled for texts). This is also probably why we cannot change the way the texts vibrate.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and am on Verizon in Oregon (in the off chance that states have different rollout dates). Before the update, which occurred this morning, my gmail notifications were set up to play the Bubbles sound (one of the stock options) and not vibrate at all. If the phone was in vibrate mode, no sound or vibration would occur, though it would still put a notification in the toolbar.

    After the update, SO MANY VIBRATIONS! All of the things were vibrating. And while that isn't the only grievance I have with this update, it was the one I fixed.

    Hope this helps. Verizon, if you're watching, we'd all greatly appreciate a fix to the battery drain. I remember that when a previous, non-android update caused battery drain, you all were on top of it and released a fix within a couple weeks. Do it again, please!

    I just turned the vibrate intensity to the lowest setting.
    Yeah. It is annoying.
