Simple question about vibrating alert

Hi, would appreciate anyones help with this question

I have just realised that when i am charging my phone it won't vibrate for calls or texts that i recieve, as soon as i pull the charger out of the socket it starts to vibrate

Ans stupid as it sounds i was woundering:

1. Does this happen with anyone else
2. Is there a setting iv missed (checked through and can't see anything, yes vibrating alert is on!!!)

Perhaps its just a dodgy phone so i ll get it swapped, i know it sstupid but i still need it 2 vibrate becuase at night i dont like having it play sounds to alert me of texts and calls, the vibrate is loud enough for me to hear to wake me up, or if im too tired wont hear it!!

This probably sounds stupid to you all but thought i would ask if anyone could help, thanks in advance

I seem to recall somebody saying that this is a feature to prevent your phone walking across the desk and falling on the floor when it rings.

Wow, didn't realize phones were that smart! :-) I noticed the same thing. But it took me about 10 months to figure this hidden feature out....haha

why is this annoying... this is the best way to work it...

vibration on a desk is more annoying/attention getting than a soft single beep or something..

vibrate is useful when the phone is on your person, in which case, your not going to have it on charge!?

Hey, I didn't know it did that, but had to try it to see!

If either the charger or the USB is plugged in it doesn't vibrate, that's actually pretty cool.


alert, question, simple, vibrating
