Did you check whether vibration is on for that profile?
Also does ur phone vibrate in other profiles?
If not try restarting ur phone and if the problem persists it must be a hardware issue and not a virus.

Re: Virus on my Nokia 5800 Xpress Music

If it vibrates for some profiles and not for some other,i would suggest u to check the vibrate option again in those profiles.
If it doesn't work,take to a nokia care point.but i'm sure it's not a virus
And that msg deletion issue,it was quite evident with v50 but in v51 its completely gone.are u experiencing it even now after updating to v51?

S60 phones from v3 are literally virus proof.you cant get one while browsing.don't install untrusted apps.thats the only precaution you have to take.
Happy browsing:smileyhappy:

Yes. Internet connection consumes a lot of battery.
