Email notification question/Issue
When I used blackberry and with my android phones, I always turn sounds off for email notifications, and just let it vibrate to let me know that I have email. With the Iphone, if I turn the sound notification off, the phone won't vibrate. Does anyone know why?

...briankeith513, you're thinking along the lines of 'profiles'. Sorry, the iPhone does not have this option.
But, if you switch the ENTIRE device to vibrate, yes, it will vibrate when you receive an email.
Not sure if this sort of option is available via a jailbreak. But, maybe something you could look into.

to truly use your device they way i think you are wanting to, there will most definitely be some micro-managing involved (via jailbreak) and for some people it's simply not worth it. so i do not blame you at all if you do return your device
this is why the Android vs iPhone battle will always continue.. what fits one persons needs, obviously is not what's optimal for the next. there's no better device than the other, imo

sorry for the delayed response. the VZW forum is crazy busy
a lot of people jailbreak for different reasons; for example: themes, the ability to sms from anywhere from the iphone, better notifications, alternative tones for email, sms, lock, unlock etc.
however, like i mentioned before, micro-management is a must and in a lot of peoples eyes this is a con. when you are jailbroken it seems like you are constantly watching for battery drains or apps/tweaks that might be misbehaving
personally i like being jailbroken. i like the iPhone to a degree. IF i could not jailbreak i would give Apple a couple more versions to see what they bring to the plate and then leave if they fail
maybe the best way for you to look at it would be.. what if you did not like jailbreaking because of issues. do you like the way it is now?
don't get me wrong; the iPhone is a pretty solid device before the jailbreak, it's just some people want more from their device. those people tend to jailbreak or get a different smartphone
