    Okay, so someone else had to notice that text messages vibrate for half a second and in silent mode go undetected 90% of the time. Is there any way for me to boost this up to like 4 or 5 half-second vibrates? it would be much more convenient.

    Many of us agree. The vibrate needs to be altered. Unfortunately, there is no fix for this. Maybe in a future update. With any luck they will make it real sms too...like picture and video attachments. "Send it to an email" is not a cure.

    I was wondering if someone could help. I own an iPhone 3Gs and for some reason when in silent mode, the phone doesnt vibrate when i receive a new text message (sms). It vibrates when I receive a call in silent mode, and also when i receive a reminder from Intelliscreen alerting me of a missed call or new sms.

    Basically the vibration function works for everything except when i receive a new sms in silent mode and when i flip the swtich from silent to ring (and vice versa).

    Due to the above, i can only assume that its not a hardware issue since it does actually vibrate. this happened a few months after purchasing (and jailbreaking) the phone so i can only assume that this is being caused by an app that I have installed since it was fine for the first few months. I have checked the settings on the phone a million times (vibrate is on for silent and ring) and I cant work out why this is happening.

    I have statusnotifier, ireal sms (v2) and quicksms installed. i dont know if they're causing the issue but i have installed them and the prob still remains.

    Is anybody else having the same problem or can advise on how to solve the problem? ive searched long and hard on the net and connot find a solution.

    thanks in advance.

    You can change the vibration patterns as long as your phone is jailbroken. It involves editing a plist file, but other than that its pretty simple. Google around for something like "iphone vibration patterns" and you will find plenty of tutorials on doing it. If I can find the tutorial I used I'll post it. I've changed mine to vibrate 4 times on a text and 3 on a new email.
