    Hi,

    my iPhone 4's vibrating function does not work. I now have to decide what's better:

    1) Go to the Apple Store and have the vibrating function fixed.
    2) Wait until the warranty is almost expired, then go to the Apple Store and hopefully have my phone replaced by a new iPhone (a new iPhone 4, not a next-gen iPhone, of course), without scratches etc...

    Does Apple replace phones without a working vibrating function or do they just fix it? What should I do?

    It would just depend on what the problem is. If they can open the settings app and turn vibrate on, or set the switch to silent to "fix" it, that's what they are going to do.

    Only you can decide that!

    Try hitting the phone against the palm if your hand where the motor is (top of the back side).

    It's not a settings issue.

    Tried it, didn't work.
