    Hi all,

    Is there anything that can be done to "strengthen" the vibrate mechanism in the Eris? I miss every call when my Eris is in vibrate mode because I don't feel it.

    A majority of the problem is the holster/belt clip I bought for it. Because of the rubbery-like plastic its made of, it absorbs most, if not all, the vibration. I am going to look at other holsters (what's everyone else using???) but thought I would ask if anyone know of anything that could be done.

    Thanks so much!
    Padawan

    Over 300 lookers, and no replies :icon_eek:

    I have the same problem, so I thought I would bump this and see if it is what it is with everybody else. I miss calls all the time too :icon_evil:

    Anything we can do to make it stronger?

    I've had the samee problem. The only thing you can do is download the app called "handcent" with it you can adjust the vibrate

    I think the lack of responses is a product of everyone biting their tongue. :)
    Wish I had something usefull to offer you.

    Good luck.

    Does Handcent increase the vibration or make them longer?

    Handcent will not increase the vibrate, but it will give you options to increase length and the number of pulses. I always missed text messages until I got Handcent. Not great but an improvement.

    MissedCall

    I use MissedCall to accomplish the same thing. Incoming text messages come in with 3 short pulses then audio. I don't mind the stock messaging so I haven't tried Handcent yet. Also, MissedCall allows for repeating alerts so I don't have to physically look at my phone to see if I missed a call/text. To me, this is huge, esp since the vibrate is so weak and I keep my phone in my pocket mostly.

    Btw, I believe only v.0.8.8 works on the Eris. Been running it for about a week now with no issues. Oh, and LED color-change doesn't work on the Eris yet. Don't think any app can do that yet. At least not one that I've found.

    No-- It's not your belt clip that is the problem, it is the horribly weak vibrate alone that is the problem. I can't feel it even when I know it is going off, which is bad. There is an app called 'Smart Vibrator' that changes the way the ringer pulses for calls and texts -- should help a bit maybe, but still a weak vibrate is weak no matter how it vibrates.
