    Ok, I am getting very frustrated with this. I just upgraded from the Galaxy S2 to the S3 on Sprint.

    My earlier phone would vibrate when I received text messages when my phone was on silent. I didn't have to select sound and vibrate on my messages settings. I don't want it to vibrate when the sound is on. I just want sound when sound is on and vibrate when it's in silent mode. How do I make that happen?

    My new S3 will vibrate when I have a calendar reminder when it's in silient mode. I don't want it to do that. How do I make it stop? I've looked in my settings from my homepage and I don't have the vibrate option selected for notifications. I also looked in my settings options for the calendar and don't see anywhere that I can mark to not vibrate.

    Please help! My old S2 did the exact opposite of what my new S3 is doing for those 2 options and it's driving me crazy. I want the same type settings I had on my S2.

    I want to know the answer to this too. Im sick of having sound and vibrate on just so when your in silent mode the phone will vibrate. Anyother phone ive had i could set it to silent and have it vibrate, and have sound on and it wouldnt vibrate.

    In my case I manage to have it working as I wanted (SMS vibrate in vibrate mode but not in sound mode) with 4.0 (ICS or earlier versions) with my S3. With the upgdade to Jelly Bean I have tried many settings without success.

    I am applying the same workaround (modify vibrate intensity for notifications) which I dislike. I guess it is a Jelly Bean issue

    This is a rule I just set up using Automateit. Would this not be sufficient? You can set a composite trigger which would include the phone being set to silent.

    But now, doesn't your phone vibrate when the sound is on as well?

    I don't know if there's a way to do it without a 3rd party app, but the program Settings Profile will let you do what you want. I've been using it for years on various Android phones, and it's very flexible. You can set up a profile for 'Vibrate", with all the sounds off, and another for sounds on and vibrate off. Using the app's widget, you can switch profiles with two taps.You can also set up rules to change profiles automatically, based on location, time, and many other triggers.
