    Is there a way to have a ringtone on for calls, but only have vibration for texts (no other sounds)? Everything I've found only lets me have a ringtone on for both, or for texts to have nothing.

    Right now, the ringtone works, but no sound is made (not even vibration) for text messages. My settings are:
    Silent Vibrate: On
    Change With Buttons: On
    Vibrate: On
    Ringtone: (my selected ringtone)
    Text Tone: None

    I have an iPhone 4, if that matters any.

    Thanks so much!

    The only way that I am aware of that being done is to create a "silent" ringtone for text. If you set Text tone to NONE, as you have found, that also turns the vibration to off. Kind of like it silencing it all together. You can create a silent ringtone by just setting some silence in an audio generator like Audacity, and then converting it to an iPhone ringtone. After that, assign that as the text tone and you will only get vibration for text if you keep all of the settings you have, except for setting the text to the silent ringtone. Hope that helps you.
