    :D Sorry, I didn't know else how to put it. I'd say around 80% of the time it works fine. Other times I just hear a click on the inside. 10% of the time it lets out this startling screeching sound. I didn't drop it or anything. Do you think Apple will replace it? It's an iPhone 3G so it is still under warranty.

    Is that the VIBRATOR on your iPhone?:confused::D

    Take it into the nearest Apple Store and they'll replace it; just make sure you can duplicate the problem at the Apple Store...

    I think you should go into the store, get in the Genius queue, and then get impatient, and say, really loud, "My vibrator hardly ever works, I can barely feel it when it does, and most of the time all there is just moaning sounds." :D

    Strange title for a post. At first I thought you were in the wrong forum altogether. After reading your post, I suggest you talk to Apple and have them replace the phone if it's still got warranty.

    Are you sure that's the phone? :D

    Take it to an Apple store and demonstrate... the phone problem, not the vibrator problem.

    Haha. I intended it to sound dirty.
    Here's what I said to the Genius:
    "I don't know how else to say this, but my vibrator is broken"
    He chuckled, but knew what I was talking about. I was in and out of the store in about 5 minutes and the vibrator was working fine! It also came with a full battery! :D
