    Noted. Thanks. .4 is not long enough for me to notice. That is why I changed the settings to vibrate longer. I do not care about battery life as much as getting my messages in due time.

    m_101,
    what I mean is that when the vibrate function is used as apposed audible ringer, the vibrate duration is too short and the call is often missed.

    I agree with Georgie and I'm looking to do the same thing.
    I think what he's trying to say is that we need the vibration to be longer (changed) when we receive a phone call and the ringer is turned all the way down/silent mode.
    I do understand that the hack above changes the vibration notice when you receive a SMS message, a Scheduler reminder and/or a new email notice, but it doesn't affect the actual phone call vibration.

    BTW, great work on the SMS vibe!

    ahh ok, I think I get what you mean
    mine seems to work fine when in silent mode.
    did you adjust the TotalDuration so that it is the sum of the OnDuration and OffDuration?
    ie mine is like this ...

    I think that might be the fault... cause when I receive a call, the iPhone vibrates for 0.75 seconds, then switches off for 0.25 seconds, then this cycle repeats as long as the phone is still ringing.
    As for text messages, there is a delay of 0.25 seconds (not noticeable), and then the phone vibrates for 0.75 seconds.
    The vibration pattern (for me at least) is independent of whether the phone is on silent mode or not...

    edit: still trying to get the phone to do 2 pulses of vibration when a text is received.

    You are correct. Now in silent mode, vibrate pulses as you described based on the intensity settings of the offduration and onduration strings.

    Once again, great find regarding this file modification. This solves the annoying problem of missing messages / mail etc due to the original short vibrate pulse setting. Power depletion is a small price to pay. As one4house reiterated, most of us are more interested in getting out messages in due time.

    Talking make the phone have 2 vibration pulses for a text message...

    woohooo!
    ok worked it out...
    see the TotalDuration part of the string, all you need to do to make the phone vibrate for a pulse, then stop, then vibrate again for a pulse (whether in silent mode or not) is adjust the TotalDuration <real> strings for the DEFAULT setting...
    something like this
    <key>Default</key>
    <dict>
    <key>Intensity</key>
    <real>1</real>
    <key>OffDuration</key>
    <real>0.25000000000000001</real>
    <key>OnDuration</key>
    <real>0.75000000000000002</real>
    <key>TotalDuration</key>
    <real>2.0</real>
    </dict>

    therefore the offduration is 0.25, the onduration is 0.75, this repeats twice since the total duration is 2.0 seconds.
    easy peasy.
    Personally, I just wanted to do this since I think a pulsed vibration is more noticeable than a continuous vibration for a set amount of time. But in theory you could have 0.1 seconds off then 0.4 seconds on, repeated 4 times to a total of 2 seconds... just alter the totalduration strings to make it happen!

    Even better m_101,
    Good mod. I've got mine off for 0.25 secs. on for 0.75 secs for a total pulse duration of 3 times <real>3.0</real>

    What if someone enters this:

    <dict>
    <key>Intensity</key>
    <real>1</real>
    <key>OffDuration</key>
    <real>60.00000000000000001</real>
    <key>OnDuration</key>
    <real>1.00000000000000002</real>
    <key>TotalDuration</key>
    <real>3600.0</real>
    </dict>

    So it would vibrate one second every minute for an hour, someone sees a problem with this?

    Thanks
