Earlier today my V3 RAZR quit vibrating; I generally keep it on vibrate while in class, or vibrate and ring when out of class. However, the vibration hasn't been happening all day. It still plays my ringtones, if that's any help.

Re: Vibrate on Motorola V3 RAZR
Hi, your vib motor probably has dirt or stray hair so its not spinning, or it has just seized.
Simply bring to a local repair shop for a cleaning - about $15, if thats no good have them replace the vibe motor, cost is about $25-40 including install.
If you can't find a shop to do it let me know, we do those all the time

I'm not sure what carrier you have but have you set the phone to "Vibrate Only" and then go into Tools/Ring Styles/Vibrate Only Detail and try selecting a few various vibrate settings? When you step through the various selections, the phone should vibrate and give you an example of each. If it doesn't, the ******** motor may be defective.
The ******** motor is just a very small motor with a piece of metal (usually in the shape of a half moon) mounted on the motor shaft. Since the metal is not symetrical it causes a vibration when the motor is activated.
Go to tools then ring styles using the "-" at the top center of the keypad. It will be set to vibe then ring, press "change" alter the style to vibe, vibe then ring, silent, loud or whatever you like. That is also where you find what ringtone is used for the ring.
