Vibration despite silent ringer mode
« on: February 12, 2013, 05:26:02 pm »
Hello,

I noticed, that notifications for new messages cause vibration, even if the ringer mode of the phone is silent.
(AlarmManager.getRingerMode() returns RINGER_MODE_SILENT in this case)

There is a setting (under notifications) to use vibration only when the device is in RINGER_MODE_VIBRATE

Well, that's not really what I want, because I want the vibration when the ringer mode is normal. By activating the setting you suggested, vibration is only activated in ringer_mode_vibrate.

Ok.

Specified a sound and vibration in my app, verified that both are triggered for notifications.

Installed this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aiteam.silenttogglewidget

Used it to switch to silent mode, back to my app, the notifications are 1) silent 2) no vibration....

Galaxy Nexus, 4.2.2 official OTA.

Also tried a Samsung Ace S5830 with 2.3, same result, no vibration in silent mode.

Sounds and vibrations are suppressed by the system depending on the sound profile. Or are supposed to be, really.

Just curious, what is your device?

I just tried it again, with the silent toggle widget, too.
Still, notifications cause vibration in silent mode, when the option to only vibrate in vibration mode is off. If it's on, then there is no vibration in silent and in normal mode, just as it sais.

My device is Samsung Galaxy S2, so not really an uncommon device ;)
The Android version is 4.0.4.

I am currently using InoMail side by side, it has the exact same problem...

Re: InoMail -- well, it just shows that Samsung's devices have an incredible number of bugs in their software.

They should just call them "Samsung Incredible 2 / 3 / 4", not "Galaxy" :) Except the name is already taken by HTC.

I added a silent mode check on my side. Let's see if I can get it right if they can't.
