    ill 4th it... weak... sort of a slower vibration frequency too... perhaps they thought it was gentler and more sleek, like the theme? who knows... your body will increase sensitivity, yes? that way, when we dont have our berries, we'll be driven even more nuts thinking that we are vibrating when we have nothing on our persons! :-P

    I don't mind it. I hate phones that vibrate so hard they fall off the table, its so loud you might as well have it on loud.

    I find myself suffering from this whenever I dont have my BB.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I bought the vib+ring app for my curve and it works amazingly well! You can choose how fast and how long it vibrates while playing a ringtone. Perhaps this would be a good app for you to check out.

    I agree mine was weak as well.....I went in and created a new profile and now mine is a little better I can feel the vibration

    I switched to vibrate&tone( in and out of the holster)
    changed the ring tone to the 3 beep ringtone
    Then changed the vibration to 3

    Don't forget to name the profile and save it!!!!!!!

    it's not the best but if I miss the vibration I still can hear the 3 beeps

    it is a LOT weaker then my old curve, i often miss the vibrations but it makes up for it with a louder speaker, if you dont feel it, you sure will hear it on high volume lol

    the later updates seemed to of increased the strength slightly, but still is very lacking

    +1 on that altho i personally find loud vibrations useless and inappropriate (makes as much noise as a ringtone Lol).
