    Default Continuous Vibration After Rear Housing Replacement?

    Hello,

    Before I changed by back housing on my iPhone 5, when I would receive a call it would vibrate for 1-2 seconds pause then vibrate for another 1-2 seconds and also I set it so that the camera flash would flash when receiving a call.

    Now after I changed the housing when I receive a call the vibrate is continuous and the camera does not flash., it is very very strange. Just wondering if anyone had come across this and if so was it a hardware or software fault.

    Thanks in advance

    Changing the housing sounds like a coincidence to me

    Default Continuous Vibration After Rear Housing Replacement?

    Sometimes continuous vibrating can be due to liquid damage.

    When I had water damage on my 4 I would get random vibrations and when I would get a text it wouldn't vibrate. If you have no water damage then check your settings to see if they've changed. Just out of curiosity, why did you change the back the glass?

    Then I would go see a genius about it unless the housing changed has voided your warranty?

    Who did the replacement? On the 5, the "rear" housing is really most of the phone body itself, so if it wasn't done professionally I'd guess that it wouldn't be too hard to mess something up on the internals.

    Why was the back housing changed?
