i have now noticed why apple made this vibrate very short, it is an absolute battery hog:0. Battery life is seriously reduced by this being on for such a long time. As it also vibrates when you send messages as well it will kill your battery as fast as you can say "its drained." I have my mp3 message alert go on for 45 seconds so i never miss it:) And at least i will have some battery left:)
i have downloaded the file using i brickr and i get a .plist file how do i convert this to text the link on the first page is not working. Can somebody suggest another way. I also tried the file on sendspace and it didnt work for me

Great post and great mod! I've been looking for a mod to lengthen the vibrate time of the ringer in silent mode. Any info or file mod for this?
Thanks for the great info regarding this thus far.
Just info! - This will decrease battery life....that's obvious!
Georgie, I don't understand...
this does affect silent mode as far as I can tell. My iPhone seems to vibrate for the same amount of time when I get a text whether it is in silent mode or not...
also yes battery drain is slightly worse for me. I put mine on so it vibrates for 2 seconds then has a pause of 0.5 seconds. That's good enough for me as the pause thing is used mainly when receiving a call.
I'm just trying to work on a way to see if I can get it to vibrate twice (as in 2 pulses of 2 seconds) when I get a text, possibly by duplicating the plist code.
If it works, I'll let you all know.
as per what i said 5 posts ago, the battery life will be significantly reduced. This is the reason Apple left it at 0.4
