    Phone not vibrating when receiving text messages

    Yesterday my phone suddenly stopped vibrating when I receive a text message. I have my phone settings on "vibrate when in silent mode" (which it is in silent mode) and the text message settings in vibrate. When I check "vibrate" in the messaging settings, the phone vibrates, but not when I am actually receiving a text message. I use no apps for text messaging other than the one installed on the phone. Is anyone else having this problem? I have turned the phone off and took the battery out for about 5 minutes, restarted and still nothing!

    have you tried rebooting into recovery and clearing the cache??
    turn the phone off...
    press volume down +power till you see fastboot... then press volume down until you see android recovery... i think it's about five times... then press volume up...
    then when the android dude pops up...; press both volume buttons...
    then use volume down to scroll to clear cache partition... then use the power button to select...
    then reboot

    Check any and all apps and widgets on your phone that might have an impact on volume and ringer controls. This happened to me a couple of months ago and I finally found out I had accidentally changed one of the settings on my Mini Info app from the ring and vibrate setting to ring only. When I changed it back to the ring and vibrate setting, the vibrate function worked again.

    I will try this as well. I installed the Handcent SMS app today and vibrate works fine with this app.
