    Kinda a weird question, how stong is the vibration on a IP4? I often miss emails on my BB because the vibratation is not strong enough for me to feel if im not sitting still.

    I would say its "fairly" strong.. but nowhere near as strong as you can have a BB vibrate. I remember the BB Storm sounding like a tank when it vibrated, so I guess it depends on which BB you have.

    it depends, do you put your device in your pocket or do you have a holster?

    i have mine in my pocket and when i'm moving around, in vibrate only, i have the tendency to miss calls, emails, alerts etc. however, i am constantly checking my phone so rarely do i miss something for any significant length of time

    IF you plan on using vibrate mode exclusively i would recommend any apps/tweaks that will allow you to have repeating alerts

    I have gotten into that crazy habit of checking every 5 minutes. The thing I will miss most is just looking at the LED.

    I feel the vibrate on the iPhone is pretty **** poor.

    Dunno...my vibrate only works about 30% of the time which sucks since my phone is always on vibrate. But I am too lazy to bring it to the Apple store...

    Yeah...pretty much the same for me. The vibrate is not as strong as the one on my old BB Curve was.

    Fortunately, I am OCD about checking it all the time.

    Not as strong as RIM devices, but adequate. +1 OCD, I constantly check it anyway.
