iPhone Notifications Vibrate While in a Call. Why??
Have you ever experienced an awful vibration in your ear while you were in a call on your iPhone, when a push notification, SMS, or email came in? There is a setting on your iPhone to enable or disable vibrate for silent mode, or in general. This means that you can set up you iPhone to ring, ring and vibrate, or just vibrate, however there does not appear to be a way to turn off vibrate for when you’re already on a call.
Not everyone has been complaining about this and some only seem to become aware of this problem after a firmware update. Forum member iErick @tipb.com says this:
“[Ever] since updating to iOS 4.2.1, when I am on a call and have the phone held up to my ear…the phone vibrates for SMS notifications and such.
This occurs if the phone is on the silent setting and when the phone is set to ring and vibrate”
I, too, have noticed since updating my iPhone to iOS 4.2 that whenever I’m on a call, and an email comes through it still plays the tone and vibrates, even with vibrate set to off. It is extremely bothersome.
So have you noticed this problem, and if so, did it start with the new update? Let us know in your comments!
