    I notice when on vibrate in 4.3 and I get a text it will do 2 short vibrations instead of the 1 slightly longer one. Is this by design.

    Yes, you can change it in the Settings.

    I like it though.

    I was pretty sure you could change it in Beta 3. I thought there were multiple selections as well. Maybe they changed it for the GM release.

    Yeah same here. I had false hope when I went under the message settings and saw the setting for the alert set and twice, but then I read underneath and it was the playback alert. I dont see what the point in changing it was.. Now to me its just annoying.

    Well the point was to differentiate texts from emails but it should be an option.

    I rather two vibrations for emails! I use email quite a bit, but it is not set to push, so there aren't any notifications for me.

    Have you considered using Boxcar for email notifications?

    What email service are you using where you can't get notifications or do you choose not to?

    I didn't know the iPhone was such a good vibrator.

    I noticed it today too. I like it because I no longer have to take the phone out of my pocket to see if I got a text or email.

    It's exactly the same as the double-vibrate you get when you plug it in.

    You won't confuse it with two texts.

    I was actually just thinking that it feels like I'm receiving two texts, before I read this thread.
