    How to Change Vibrate on 8900?

    Advertisement



    I might be foolish here but does anyone else feel like the 8900 when it vibrates is really soft/weak? My 8310 used to wake me and my wife up at night when it would vibrate.

    I love this BB but my only complaint is the vibration is so soft i don't hear it half the time or feel it when it is in my pocket.

    Is there a way to change this? I have to get my phone on vibrate I work in Production and it has to be silent on set.

    Thanks ahead of time for your help!

    Yeah it is very weak. It doesn't rattle on the table like my 8320 did...

    Hahaha This is classic....I thought it was only my phone. Hopefully It will change with an OS upgrade because that's what happened with tones. They are now louder with .133. The battery life has also greatly improved

    Nice! Possibly/hopefully this will improve with a future OS. I missed 3 calls and had 15 texts/emails yesterday when I took my phone out of my pocket. The bb is great except for that one issue.~via smartphone~

    Myxertones, or zedge have good ringtones. But the other thing I don't like is that (I think) the storm has individual sms tones for each person. I want that on this phone!

    I use an app called BuzzMe so that it will ring and vibrate at the same time. My tones are really loud, I am currently running 4.6.1.152

    I think it's you. Mine feels about the same as my 8100.

    This device defiantly vibrates less then past handhelds. I can barely feel it when its in my pocket.

    Gf's 8900 vibrates just as good as the 8320. If something was off, believe me, she would let me know ASAP.
