    Go to messages, click menu, then look for notification setting. Vibrate should be in that area.

    Yes, you're running Froyo. The option will be all the way at the bottom of the screen. You must access the messaging settings by hitting your menu key within your messaging app.

    Then, flick alllllllll the way to the bottom of the screen, the last option is a Vibrate. It has a check box next to it. Click it.

    If it truly is a software issue, you could always install Handcent SMS.

    Same method essentially. go into "text messaging" app, then press your menu hard key. Then look for messaging settings. Then go to the area that lists "text messaging settings". You should see it under there.
