I found my own solution to it. Here are the instructions: Open hangouts. Click on the menu (three lines on top left corner of hangouts). (Click image to enlarge) Click on settings. Click on your email account, on which you want to control notifications . Click on Notification under the given options. Uncheck the sound or vibrate option to disable/enable ...

AFAIK, the vibrator motor that are used in the phones are called Q-Coin motor as they are in a shape of a coin. They are of permanent magnet type accepting two leads for positive and negative DC voltages. The circuitry that operate this motor just can switch on the motor for a specific period of time and can change its rotation direction. All other ...

You can enable vibrate for SMS from Messaging -> Menu key -> Settings -> Notification settings -> Vibrate. Not sure about Email since I use K-9 (in case you use it too it's in the app, Long-press the account -> Account settings -> Notifications -> Vibrate).

Update: Android Pie (9.0) finally allows you to disable all the vibrations. Go to Settings app > Accessibility > Vibration. Some ROMs still don't have this option, in which case you may want to check out my old solution. Old solution - applies to Android Oreo or older (<9.0): Stock Android does not have an option to disable all vibrations. This ...

On my Samsung Galaxy S3, this setting is inside the Text Messaging app, rather than as a general setting. Open the Text Messaging app, and start the Settings menu. About halfway down I have a block of Notification settings. First being Notifications, Second being Ringtone, Third is Vibrate. Uncheck and you're done. Hope your Settings Menu is similar since ...

There is a workaround involving Do not disturb's Priority only mode. To put it simply, you must use Priority only (from Quick Settings - Do not disturb) since it has per-app setting for notification alert that can overwrite system's default setting. Priority only mode will still show all notifications. However, only priority notifications will be alerted (...

Just install - Contact Vibrate From the description: Set a different vibration for each of your contacts and know who is it. Set a different a vibration for each of your contacts Know who is calling or texting you, just feeling it ! When you receive a phone call or a text message (SMS or MMS) Contact Vibrate will respond vibrating ...

TL;DR If you still want to have vibration on all notifications except for captive portal (this particular issue), I'm afraid you can't. It's as dbasch mentioned in the comment, that the vibration (actually, the notification alert itself) was added in Marshmallow. Technical Details When Android detects that the WiFi needs to login to captive portal, as ...

No easy way - you'll need to install a custom kernel like GLaDOS or Trinity kernel and the relevant apps for each kernel from the Play Store to adjust settings - one of which will be the vibration intensity. Check out the relevant threads at XDA.

Go to Settings -> Sound and make sure Silent mode is set to Vibrate, then in RINGTONE & NOTIFICATIONS section, check the option Vibrate on ring, then call yourself and it should vibrate.


3

No, this is not an option. Actually this seems like a bug as this should be controlled by the option, Vibrate on Touch under Sound in the settings. Either that, or the option Vibrate on Touch should remain visible when setting the screen security option to Slide in the Security part of the settings. You may want to report this as a bug to the Android ...

Install an app called AudioManager. It has separate vibrate checkboxes for alerts and ringer. Setting the checkbox for alerts fixed the issue for me.

There are SMS apps in the market that allow you to customize notifications by sender. Handcent SMS is the one that I've used.

I could think off two possible alerting devices like: A Bluetooth enabled watch - which when paired with the phone can display incoming call alerts and can even vibrate. Being a watch on our hand its vibrations can't go unnoticed. Casio has one; Amazon has few bracelets; Sony's LiveView are few options. To wear a Bluetooth headset always so that the ring ...

I had the same problem. Download the app called "Vibrate mode by force" and enable the Never Silent option. Hope it will help :)

This is an issue I have as well, it lies with the apps, whose settings override the default ringer and vibration settings. In order to completely disable vibrations you will have to disable them in Settings > Sound, and individually in each app. Twitter app you will have to go to Settings > and there is a Notification Settings sections that allows you to ...

I don't think continuous vibration while the phone is ringing can destroy a phone. It can drain battery though. I always set mine to vibrate, and it's still fine. Some phones or custom ROMs let you adjust how strong the vibration is.


3

The one on the left signifies "ring and vibrate" mode, the one on the right is "ring mode". If you choose the first your phone will vibrate as well as ring for an incoming call. If you choose the second, it will ring only. I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere, but you can match up the icons with their respective .png files in the CM source as a ...

Unfortunately, Android does not provide a stock setting that will control global vibration intensity because not all phone hardware supports the ability to control vibration amplitude. Instead, Android has released updates to the Vibrator control as of Android API level 26 (aka: Android Oreo). Developers can check if the hardware supports adjusting haptic ...

Not sure if this helps, but I have a Samsung Galaxy S2. I use GO SMS Pro for texting, instead of the stock Messaging app. The vibration settings can be configure through the app itself. In the stock Messaging app, I could not find any option for vibration.

There is a separate vibrate setting in the menu for sms messaging under Settings.

One option is to disable the notfications from the built-in messaging app (in the Messaging app, press Menu, select Settings and then scroll to the bottom and take the tick out of the Notifications box). You can then use a 3rd party app that gives you full customization of the notification options, like SMS Popup which gives you control over the vibration ...

You could do that with Tasker. This app matches defined conditions with tasks -- i.e. you can tell it to execute a task (which is a set of actions) whenever a (set of) condition(s) is met. Under conditions it lists "Orientation". As actions, it e.g. describes: Vibrate On Notify: Whether to vibrate with a system notification. Vibrate On Ringer: Whether ...

My Droid Bionic (running Android 2.3.4) has a "network lost tone" setting under Settings/Sounds. If you the phone is in silent mode with vibrate enabled, this setting might cause a vibrate, although I have not experienced that particular scenario. Your phone probably has a similar setting.


2

Go to Messaging. Select setting. Go to notification settings. There you have an option to switch on vibration for Notifications.


2

With Gmail if you set up label, you can set different notification sound including vibration per label. This means in Gmail.com first of all you've to create a filter to apply a label to email address you want different notification. After that Open Gmail in your phone, go to Menu -> Settings -> Your email address -> Manage Label -> Select created label. ...

Profiles are just a way to change a bunch of settings at once. By long-pressing the power button and tapping ring/vibrate/silent (below airplane mode) you change a single setting however: The ringing behaviour. The profiles work slightly different to what you expect. You most probably forgot to enable some switches of the standard profile, most of them are ...

In my ICS (on LG Swift hardware) the switch to "ring" profile occured on every answered call during daytime. Somebody else at Polish LG forum complained about switching to "quiet" at night. SOLVED: After some reading and a simple experiment I found that it is the system app to switch profiles for the nighttime (settings->sounds->"silence time" in my LG). ...

I had the same exact problem, and it was driving me crazy! Sadly, I couldn't find any solution other than to install an app, "Sound Manager": selecting "whenever possible" in the vibration settings the vibration will work just fine!

This turned out to be a hardware fault which is pretty common on the SGS2 units. The vibration device is mounted next to the audio jack, meaning that it sometimes fails if the jack has been stressed. There's a short video (warning: nsfw language) that describes the issues and how to fix them. Essentially it works as following: Insert a cable into the ...
