N8 - Vibrate text alert. Only vibrates once. How can I amend? Vibrate Force.

My n8 only vibrates once when on silent. It is not very noticable and I would like it to vibrate several times. Am I able to change this?

 

Also is it possible to change the force of the vibrate as it seems quite weak compared to the n97?

 

Thanks

Re: N8 - Vibrate text alert. Only vibrates once. How can I amend? Vibrate Force.

What you need to do is edit the silent profile.

Do this:

Menu > Settings > Profiles > Silent > Personalise > Message alert tones > Tones > Select something from the list.

The length of the file you select from that list will change how long the phone vibrates for. If you want two vibrations select the "message1.aac" tone.

The sound will not be played so the phone will still be silent. The actual force of the vibration cannot be changed but this setting does appear to give a longer vibration that does feel stronger.

:smileymad: there are about 6 message alert tones, but all seem to be exactly the same on silent!

:smileyhappy: Okay got it to work on message tone 5.  I had to choose it under general first, then under silent.  Now I get 3 vibrates, and they seem much stronger.

Edit: No, the original instructions still apply to Belle, you just have to know that the phone won't vibrate when on the charger. Leaving this here just in case anyone else comes searching later.
