Ping a contact in the BlackBerry Messenegr is almost like a Buzz in Yahoo Messenger. It is use to get the attention. On my device, if I ping someone in BBM, the other person’s phone will vibrate while receiving the word PING in red unless it’s set to silent mode. Or even if it's silent it's work too sometime if we choose only to vibrate it
My BB can send/receive pings from other users. However, I notice that the BBM is not vibrating on my BB Z10 or Q10 phone when my friend pings me a contact. Sending othere different types of files to BBM contacts works fine, such as my location, events and pictures, except the Ping. There is no such option to enable the “vibrate” feature.
Many users are missing this feature and there is still no solution and BBM need software update to fix it. The vibrate on pingfunction does make BBM worth. Hopefullyblackberry fix the problem soon to make it right.

Hello shay5a and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
The PING no longer vibrates by default on theBlackBerry10platform, likeitdoeswiththelegacydevices.
If you wish for PING to vibrate, you will need to manually enable vibrate for all BBM messages for your profiles. PING will now vibrate, as will your other received BBMs.
Hope this clarifies.

And we need to get the options to set the frequency and the lenght of the vibration back. I can't beleive it's hard coded this way in the core of the OS.
I love the vibration, it's strong and you can feel it inside your jacket. But it would be just as good to get a triple short burst on notifications or BBMs messages.
I get so annoyed when BBMing and getting long burst of vibrations and I don't want it silent.
Get the options back ASAP.

I've been missing the vibration on "ping" regardless of what profile you're on, ever since I switched to BB 10.
Frankly, I'm getting quite frustrated at all of the features that make a BlackBerry a BlackBerry that are missing on BB 10. Another example being customizing profiles and having as many of them as we want. Now in 10.2.1 it's only gotten worse, where you can't set your BB to vibrate for calls while using the "silent" profile.
Come on BB, get your stuff together and stop focusing on lipstick on a pig, and start bringing us back the functionality we expect from your products!
