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?

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.
