iPhone users all around the world are sick of this problem. The problem where the iPhone doesn’t vibrate when it should be! All iPhone users know what I am talking about… There is always that one person who wants their phone to vibrate in class, at the movies, or anywhere else where you really shouldn’t be making noise… But they can never get their iPhone to vibrate when it is supposed to.
This problem has caused more fights between couples than any other issue with the iPhone! Even though everyone on earth knows that Apple will not fix this problem (they want you to buy a Macbook), I have the perfect solution. Just put your iPhone in this pouch, and it will automatically make noise when it is supposed to!
Why won t my phone vibrate
I have been using this pouch for about a year now, and it has saved me so much trouble. Every time I would go out with my girlfriend or anyone else around other people, they would get really mad that the iPhone doesn’t vibrate when I put it on loud. Now all of that is gone! My iPhone works just like it is supposed to… It vibrates when it is supposed to! I don’t know why all iPhone users didn’t think of this solution. Just put your phone in the pouch, and you will finally have your iPhone working like it should.”
The OtterBox Commuter series case offers the best of both worlds; incorporating elements from the rugged Defender Series line with the slim silicone slipcover of the Reflex Series. This case is custom made to fit your iPhone 3Gs/3G perfectly. It comes in 2 parts, a soft inner silicone and a hard polycarbonate outer shell which clip together around the phone to form a single protective unit.
The silicone layer also covers the back, sides and corners of your phone for outstanding protection from impacts and abrasions. This case is very functional as well with openings for all ports and buttons on the iPhone, including the dock connector, camera lens, headphone port and speaker. The only thing this case does not provide is additional battery power.
Check your settings to make sure that vibrate is turned on.
Make sure that the vibrate function is turned on by checking your settings. Go to “Settings” and then “Sounds.” You can also check if the vibrator is working by going into your clock application and setting a timer. If you feel it buzzing when the time goes off, make sure that all of your settings are correct before trying to change your case.
Vibrate is turned off
If you have checked all of the settings and made sure that vibrate is turned on, but you still do not get any vibration when getting a call or when your timer goes off, it may be because the mode is locked. Hold down “1” until you feel a buzz. This will unlock all of the “modes” on your phone, including vibrate mode. You can also hold down “5” until you feel a buzz to open up the phone option menu, then press “1” again to re-lock modes.
Make sure your phone isn’t in silent mode.
If you have your phone set to silent, it will not vibrate when getting a call or when the timer goes off. Make sure that your volume is turned up and that there are no check marks next to “Silent” in the settings menu. If you have an iPhone 3G, press the volume buttons on top of your phone to turn up the volume or to change modes. Hold down the “-” button to go into silent mode, then press the “+” button until silent mode is turned off.
There are a few simple ways to fix this problem. The first set of options have to do with settings and with your iPhone case. Make sure that all of the relevant settings are correct, and try switching cases if you feel the vibration is not being felt when it should be. If these options don’t work, then there may be an issue with the iPhone’s hardware, and you will have to take it to an authorized service provider.
