Vibrate while on call? (BZZZZ in your ear) iOS 4.2.1
This is getting pretty annoying.
Every since updating to 4.2.1, when I am on a call and have the phone held up to my ear...the phone vibrates for SMS notifications and such.
This occurs if the phone is on the silent setting and when the phone is set to ring and vibrate.
This is happening on my iPhone 4 and my wife's iPhone 4. For the time being, I shut off the vibrate with ring setting.
Anybody else notice this wonderful buzzing in your ear?

I restored and tested it before restoring from backup. It still happened with a clean OS install. I then downloaded a new copy of 4.2.1 and it is still doing it.
There has got to be others with this issue. I am going to check a couple of friends iPhones at work tomorrow.

I don't talk much, so I could be remembering this incorrectly...

This hasn't happened to my iPhone 4 or the wife's iPhone 4 until the 4.2.1 update.
I've completely restored and it still does it. I figured there would be more people complaining about this.
@Massie...phone is set to ring and vibrate because I like being able to hear or feel my phone. I've always had it set this way and it has never done this.
No phone I have ever had vibrates when I am on a actual call.

Usually when I have issues like these...
First I search on forums and twitter for other users having the same issue. If I don't find anything, I will start a new thread. I end up calling when I can confirm to them that others are having the same issue.
In this case, people have told me that their iPhones have always done this. I know I have never had this happen and I get SMS/e-mails while on the phone all the time.

I've been having the exact same problem. I almost dropped my phone the first time it happened
I just turn off the vibrate when I know I'm going to be making a lot of calls. But hopefully apple releases a fix in the next update.

I noticed this issue tonight as well. Had the phone set to vibrate, was talking to my sister and got a message on Kik and "BUZZZZ" right in the ear. Would be pretty annoying if I used vibrate a lot...

The thing about it all is the buzzing that hits you 10 seconds into a call is, I am assuming, new email notification, correct?
My email is set to come in manually only when I open the email client, so the buzzing should not occur.
