    I love my Droid but it is driving me crazy that I can't seem to get my phone to vibrate more than the standard (2 quick buzzes) when an event reminder is set. That means I miss all of my meetings for work etc. I have tried everything (Missed Call, Event Notification, Handcent, Google Notification, etc.) but nothing gives stronger or longer vibrations for events!! Can someone please help?!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    I wish I knew the answer for this....I came to a Droid from an ENV and would keep it on vibrate. As a sys admin, I have servers that send SMS to my phone if something's wrong. On my ENV, if something came in, it would vibrate like...well, something that vibrates strongly and would wake me up in the middle of the night. It was the only thing that would do it (none of the audible notifications would).

    My Droid? Not so much. The vibration's weak, and as far as I know, there's no way to change it. I've got it set to vibrate at night, and while I get multiple sms/emaiils at night, it very rarely awakens me. Haven't been bitten yet, but I don't look forward to the day I do....

    DESPARATELY need stronger/longer vibration for events!!! PLEASE HELP!!

    I love my Droid but it is driving me crazy that I can't seem to get my phone to vibrate more than the standard (2 quick buzzes) when an event reminder is set. That means I miss all of my meetings for work etc.! I have always kept my phones on 100% vibrate to ensure that I get all calls, messages, and reminders without having to hear them, especially while in meetings or loud places. I have tried everything (Missed Call, Event Notification, Handcent, Google Notification, Smart Vibrate, etc.) but nothing gives stronger or longer vibrations for calendar events!! Can someone please help?!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. - Feel free to email me if desired at billyboy8888@gmail.com

    Check out an app called Missed Call. If I recall, it does what you want as you can set the notification to repeat.

    I see that you mentioned you already tried missed call but did you make a custom vibrate pattern our just use their settings? I use missed call and never miss a text or call due to my custom vibrate settings

    So far the only solution I've found is to have both vibrating and audio alerts for calendar and astrid events. For calendar events, I found a recording of Reveille and converted it to a ringtone -- that always gets my attention ;)

    While missed call allow customizing the vibrate type for calendar events (I have mine set to "multiple long"), it doesn't have a repeat setting for if I miss the initial vibration. :(

    I use an application called SMS Popup to customize the sms notifications on my phone. It provides a completely customizable notification from the duration of vibrate to the number of times it reminds you. I wholeheartedly recommend this application. It is a must on this phone (or any android phone, in my opinion).
