    i just noticed I wasn't getting any vibration when I get a call. Pressing home button gives a vibrate, so I made sure vibrate is on for calls and tried a ring tone. The ringtone plays and phone vibrates for half a second and nothing more. I try another ring tone and no vibrate. Sometimes I get a slight vibrate when I choose things but it's only the jolt type of vibrate nothing like a buzzzzzzzzz. I tried to shut down and restart. That didn't help

    Any other ideas before I take it to apple and wait a long time for a replacement phone?

    Isn't there a way to select different vibration patterns for the vibrate option? Have you tried that?

    Yes. I tap on the screen, I'll get a bzt and then no other taps registers or hold on screen for long buzz.
