Have you ever gotten a text message while you are on a voice call? It vibrates the phone, and produces a tone. I feel like it should just make a little tone to let you know. I could do without the vibration.

Does this happen to other people? Is there a way to fix it?

You can turn off vibration for all audio alerts. By default it vibrates on silent or not.

I agree that it should NOT vibrate while you are on a call... It is very annoying.

But I want vibe when I'm not on a call, so turning it off isn't the right way.

I guess they might address that in an update.

Really the thing I hate is when you are on a call and get a text - then you hav to click on ignore or view before you can gain any control of the phone functions back. Not too big of a deal, just annoying. Like when you need to end a call - you have to ignore the text first.

you could just wait for the other person to hang up.
