Default 7290 quit vibrating

Please Login to Remove!

My 7290 quit vibrating. I have the profile correctly set up.

I am figuring it is a minor glitch and was going to perform a master radio reset but forgot how. Does anyone know the steps off the top of their head?

Has anyone had this happen to them?

seems like a random glitch. we've had 2 users experience this problem. I replaced one of their bberries (7280) and the other seemed to start vibrating again (7290).

It happened to me about two weeks ago. Nothing I did would make it vibrate. A day or two later - about the time I had convinced my self that it's time to trade it for an 8700 - it started working again.

It must have known what you were thinking!

Hola!,

I didn't know that a 3-finger reset might have worked...

I had my 7290 replaced. See my post: 7250 Exit Button and Vibrate Broken

I fixed mine by removing the back cover and discovered "dust bunnies" had lodged under the contacts of the vibrating motor.

I cleaned everything out and no problems since.
