    I want to disable vibrations for incoming sms messages but when I go to messaging, menu, settings, under notifications 'vibrate' is turned on and greyed out. The only way it won't vibrate is if my phone is on silent mode which I don't want. Any help??

    Welcome to Android Central! What if you go to the main Settings>Sounds menu and turn off Also Vibrate for Calls?

    Hey thanks for the reply. I had a look there and all the options are switched off, the only way I can get vibrations to stop for sms is to put my phone in silent mode which I don't want as it stops vibrations for all apps. I'd only like to turn it off for one app, any other ways?

    What version of Android is it running? Can you show a screenshot of what the notification settings menu looks like? http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...d-central.html

    Strange. What happens if you tap Restore Default Settings?

    Nothing changes, it was already default

    In that screenshot, the status bar shows that the phone is in Vibrate Only mode (the tilted rectangle with the little vibration lines emanating from it). If you turn the volume up so that the phone is out of Vibrate Only, do the Sound and Vibrate options in that menu become available?

    Yeah you can turn it off then but it stops vibrations for the whole phone not just the app

    You're talking about the menu from the screenshot, right? Are you saying that toggling off the Vibrate switch in the Messaging app's menu will stop vibration for the whole phone? That sounds like a bug. Or are you talking about the Sound menu in the system settings?
