    Try a hard reset. (hold the home button and the on/off button until the Apple logo appears)

    If that doesn't work you'll have to do a restore of the software using iTunes. You should be able to restore it from a backup and be fine.

    Then did you go into settings, chose sounds and make sure Vibrate is set to on? Then move the silent/ringer switch and feel it vibrate? If that doesn't work, go to an Apple Store.

    When I 1st got my 3G I didn't know you had to have a sound selected for the vibrate to work. That took me a few days :D

    This happened to me once. The motor just burned out.

    Restore it and take it to the genius bar and they will replace it if its under warranty.
