Vibrate Mode

Wondering if other people are people are finding that that new operating system seems to only vibrate once instead of twice like the old one. Also, I am not sure it is as strong of vibrate. I am missing notifications for e-mails quite a bit. I never really had that issue before?

 

I always have my phone on Vibrate. Any other "Strong Silent Types", having any issues in Vibrate mode!

 

Thanks,

Sky

Re: Vibrate Mode

Sky, you are most definitely not alone.

 

The vibrate, LED, and audio notification all three need some updates as well as ability to customize.

Re: Vibrate Mode

If you are missing notifications then you may also be having the notification issue noted in this KB. There is no fix for it yet, but it seem that the Dev teams are working on it.

 

To restore notifications when you notice that they stop, the fix is to either reset the device (push top button and chose reset), or do a battery pull. Smiley Happy

Re: Vibrate Mode

Please re-read his post. He never said he was missing notifications, only asking about multiple vibrates.

I've read it again, and it says he is missing notifications.. I am simply pointing out that he may ACTUALLY BE MISSING NOTIFICATIONSdue to a known bug. Smiley Happy

Re: Vibrate Mode

While there is an issue with notifications that affects some devices he's obviously referring to missing vibrate settings.

Hopefully those options come in a future update. That is one of my biggest issues with the device is that I also miss notifications because it only vibrates once for any kind of message. I also don't like having every message vibrate the same way.

Also needed are custom profiles beyond the Normal and Phone Only. Vibrate and Silent can't really be customized.

Notifications needs a lot of work.

Re: Vibrate Mode

Hi J_C,

 

Absolutely no doubt, the notifications need work if they are to come close to matching what

we are all used to from previous Blackberry versions. In fact the detail that you could create in BBOS7 was truly fantastic. I too hope we get back to that stage. Smiley Happy

 

I just wanted to make him aware that he may actually be missing some notifications because the device is not vibrating, due to a "well known" issuse (at least as well known as anything can be for an OS that has been available for just over 2 weeks.) Not trying to take away from our friend JS's post, simply trying to add a bit more information that may very well be relevant. Smiley Happy

 

Anyhoo.. enough about vibrators.. but hey.. that reminds me........
