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'm still on 4.0.1 and I think I get audio alerts when I'm on a call...seems like normal behavior when you've got it set to ring and vibrate, no? As for your silent settings, have you double checked to make sure that vibrate is off for that?
I don't talk much, so I could be remembering this incorrectly...
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 am now having this problem too. Before the 4.2.1 update it would only ring in my ear. Shouldn't the phone disable all alerts until the call is ended.
I like the tone, just not the vibrate. When I had my blackberry, that was an option for everything, "notify when on call"..it played the same generic tone through the earpiece. I like how the iPhone plays the proper tone through the earpiece.
