I've been using a Moto G (2nd generation) running Android 6.0 "Marshmallow". I was playing with the settings, and changed some setting. Now, every time the phone loses or regains cellular service — for example, when I'm in the basement, or when I enable or disable airplane mode — the phone vibrates two or three times. The vibration is noisy and annoying. What can I do to prevent it from happening?
Preventing your device from vibrating whenever it gains or loses its mobile network connection
I found a relevant CrackBerry.com forum post by Kathy Mansfield. The post guided me towards a solution that works.
- Open the Phone app.
- Press the three-dots icon in the top-right-hand corner of the app.
- Tap "Settings".
- Tap "Calls".
- Tap "Voicemail".
- Uncheck the "Vibrate" option.
The forum poster explains:
If you have a pending notification, like a voicemail message you've not retrieved, you'll see the icon for the message. Every time your service is lost and regained, it will vibrate because of the voicemail notification. I suppose it thinks the notification is new. ...
Alternatively, you could just clear the ... voicemail message and hence the notification.
