    Anyone else experienced this? I have mail notifications turned off so it's not that.

    I keep my phone plugged in overnight, and at least twice per night I'll get a short double vibration, just like a txt msg notification or when you plug your phone in to charge.

    It's pretty annoying, and does it in sleep mode as well as when the ringer is on.

    I've heard of earlier reports of vibrate-gate.

    Do you have anything in your reminder and calendar notifications?

    Nope, all notifications for mail have been turned off. It also only does the random vibration while charging. Over the course of a night, it'll randomly go off 2-3 times.

    And you've gone through ALL of your notifications to make sure that sounds and vibrate are turned off? (Gone through every app?)

    Have you tried charging during the day to see if it happens while you're awake? My father had a patient who complained of a vibrating sensation while he was driving. He checked out okay, and when he came in for another visit, he had discovered the cause. He was falling asleep while driving home from a tiring job, and running over the rumble strips on the white line. By the time he woke up, he was off the line and didn't realize what had happened. His wife saw him do it while he was driving, and that solved the mystery.

    I turn on Do Not Disturb between 11pm and 6am, but it's set to let favorites ring or ding. You probably see the txt or email, however....

    Yes, i've gone through each App and turned notifications OFF.

    I leave the phone on my nightstand, and charge it each night. The vibration that goes off is the same as when you plug it in (2 short vibrations), and ONLY happens while it's plugged in.

    It has been waking up both my wife and I, so at least i know i'm not just dreaming it :)

    I've tried different cables/chargers/phone reset... and nothing. I'm beginning to think it may be a hardware issue.

    Just a wild guess. Maybe it is your wall plug. if the electricity is not continuous, the phone may be charging on and off, hence the vibration.

    Do you mean you simply turned them off on Notification Center or made sure to toggle off sounds/vibrations for each of them as well. Those are separate things.

    Im having this issue with usb port in my car. Seems to be intermittent as i took to dealer with 2 different apple USB Cords and only happened with one. Assumed cord was damaged. However, after behaving normal this morning, both cords back to buzzing continuously each time I attach the cord. Makes streaming over usb unuseable. When i plug cord into outlet, just buzzes the first time.

    I'm having the same issue with a cord at work. I bought 4 new cords when I got my Iphone 6, and am only having trouble with this one. I'm guessing there's a problem specifically with this cord. I'm going to bring in another one to see if that's true.

    What charger are you using? I have an iHome radio and it will do this sometimes. Its totally random and sometimes happens several times in a row and sometimes once.

    If I forget to mute the phone before sitting it down it also makes the "ding" like when you first plug it in and ends up waking up the misses.

    it is the apple cord since the true test is if you try and sync to iTunes if the cord is defective. it won't sync. Need to bring it back to apple to see if they will replace. SIGH.
