    Hi all. So I search around and looked for post with this issue but couldn't really find any that pertained to me. I have the phone set on vibrate and in the messenging settings it is set to vibrate. But it doesn't vibrate...anyone else having these issues? :icon_eek:

    That IS odd.. Unless setting it to vibrate negates the vibrate function, like maybe they cancel each other out..?
    Are you using the native messaging app, or something like handcent?

    Are you using the stock messaging or Handcent or Chomp SMS?

    I'm just using the stock messenger...I don't want to install any other messenger app.

    I am now having the same problem. Everything was working fine this morning, but now my Droid does not vibrate when i receive a text.

    I use Handcent for texting and it is set to vibrate all the time. It still says it is set to vibrate all the time, but it never does, even if my phone is set to vibrate.

    Any suggestions?

    Yeah...another text issue is that the contacts lag to show the names of the people I'm texting...It starts out with just their number then slowly turns to their name. Blah...The texting on the droid should be much more advanced.

    Same thing with me. I am using Handcent and have tried all of the vibrate settings with no luck. Last time I checked, my phone was still vibrating with phone calls though. This is really bugging me.

    I've been messing with all kinds of settings, still no luck. My phone vibrates every other time it should be, just not when I receive a text. My guess is that something is up with Handcent, though not everyone is having this problem. I don't know what OS update I have for my Droid, I just updated it when i first got it, when it told me I needed to.
