Vibration for SMS Alerts
I know this has been discussed before, but I would like to bring this up again.
I use my cell phone as a pager. As I am a physician, it is crucial that I don't miss pages. I keep my phone on silent mode at all times. The extremely short vibration is just not adequate for a text alert. What I would need is a longer alert coupled with reminder alerts every minute or so to assure that I get the page. With my Palm Pre+ I have needed to use patches to get this done. Android has an app called Smart Vibrator which apparently can accomplish these tasks.
Is there any way to make this so for the iPhone? I would love to make it my primary work phone. Thanks in advance

Under Settings / Notifications / Messages there is an option to repeat an SMS notification every two minutes up to 10 times, so that will help. Unfortunately there is no way to change the vibration duration with the standard iOS installed; jail breaking may provide more options.

Since its an iPhone 4 you may be able to jailbreak. There's gotta be a jailbreak option for you. Maybe bitesms. I think they offer custom vibrations. Haven't been jailbroken in a while I might be wrong.
