I'm not sure if this is just an issue with my phone, or if it is an S3 issue...
I received my 16gb model on Thursday, and things are great so far. However, for some reason I cannot get the device vibration setting to do anything besides 'basic call' even when I change it to ther others. The way to change vibrate settings seem a little strange.
I know that there are the global sound settings, and then the internal Messaging settings (which I am most concerned about). For example, in the global sound settings, I have Heartbeat enabled, and also Sound and Vibration checked off. In the internal messaging settings, I have Vibrate -> Always vibrate when notified. With these options, I am getting the Basic vibrate (one long vibrate) instead of heartbeat - this happens both when the phone has sound on, as well as when it is in vibrate mode.
Am I missing something very simple? Or is this actually an issue?
I sort of have the same problem. It only works when I get a phone call but when I get a text message, it uses the Basic Call vibration.
In my case, I selected Heartbeat. My phone only vibrates Heartbeat when I get a call but when I get a txt message the Basica Call vibrate instead. I would like to get the Heartbeat vibrate when I get a txt messages as well. I too feel like I'm missing a step or something.
I am having the same problem. Messaging has its own settings for notifications and when to vibrate. There is not a setting for which vibration style to use.
You may have to download a messaging app that allows you to customize messaging vibrations. I have handcent so I can give certain people certain vibration patterns and certain LED colors as well. (:
