Default Problem with "Vibrate Only" profile

Please Login to Remove!

"Vibrate only" doesn't work if you have set a custom ringer for a contact. It will both vibrate (first) and then ring! (Unusual behavior in a profile named "Vibrate Only." Is there a fix?

By the way, if you don't own a Storm, don't jump in with the standard advice on editing profiles. On the Storm, only "Normal" and Custom profiles can be edited.

Notifications is a whole new deal with the Storm, which I learned because none of my custom ringer notifications were transferred with the address book from my Pearl. In many ways it has been "dumbed down" and is pretty straight forward, except that "Vibrate Only" allows the phone to ring, and can't be edited!

I had to create a new, Custom Profile, and set it up for true "Vibrate Only." I consider this a bug, but undoubtedly whoever set up the "Vibrate Only" profile considers it a feature.
