    My Iphone4 vibrates by itself. Anyone know why this is the case? It makes so little noise. It doesn't vibrate all the times. Maybe once in every one hour? Please help...
    I just also realized that it is downloading data. I turned off my push notification. So, dunno why..

    Do you have it checking e-mail every hour? Sometimes it is not so obvious when it vibrates for new e-mail.

    Its probably an app that runs in the background. I find that when my phone vibrates and it wasnt one of the major 3: email, phone, sms - then it was probably me IM client (trillian) on the 3rd page.

    i scroll over there and voila.

    sometimes the push notifications just dont pop up and it leaves you with a vibration and no idea where it came from

    Turn your volume on and you'll likely know the source the next time the alert goes off.
