Default vibrate too weak

Please Login to Remove!

We picked up several new 8900s to replace our 8320s and we have all noticed that the vibrate is significantly less strong on the 8900s. I have been missing a lot of calls because of this...

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there any way to make the vibrate stronger?

Which OS do your phones have?

There's a BlackBerry Buzz application you can purchase that lets you modify the color of the LED's that flash for various alert notifications, it also allows you to increase the duration of the vibration. For calls my phone vibrates in 4 second intervals. You can also control the interval between vibrations.

That might work for you.

I have the same problem and when it's in my pouch forget it.

this has always been an issue when coming from older devices - my 8120 had a much stronger vibrate as well

Yep. Noticed my bold is weaker than the 8700 I had before.
