    My iPhone 4s appears to only vibrate when text tones are on. When I switch the sound to None, no sound,and also no vibration......and this also goes for whats app.

    Any reason why this is happening? Its getting quite frustrating as its such a simple task....

    And yes, both vibrate settings are on.

    Thanks.

    I believe that's the correct behavior...if you choose None, that's what you get: no sound, no vibration. It may be possible that you could load one of your own ringtones (make or buy a silent ringtone and sync it over to the phone) that would let you have a vibration without sound, but the Apple setting for None does not do that.

    How can that be the correct behavior? So basically you can't put everything to only vibrate without a stupid tone going off?....thats really stupid lol.

    I misread your op. If you want everything to vibrate only simply flip the switch on the upper
    left hand side of the phone. You will still get sounds for music,video and apps.

    Right, if you want NO sounds for anything (calls, texts, etc) just flip the switch. If you want your calls to ring and your texts to vibrate but not ring, use the "silent tone" method I mentioned above.

    (For the record, I agree it's kind of dumb.)
