    I appreciate the advice. My service provider is Verizon. I went through the steps, but was unable to get the vibrate function to work. Do you have an idea of how much it costs to have the motor repaired, and is it worth it?

    I will head into the store this afternoon. Thanks Jim.

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.

Good luck!

    The motors are really inexpensive. I bought a bunch of them on eBay. I have no idea how much Verizon would charge. They probably would replace the phone rather than repair it. If you can get the phone apart you might be abe to do it yourself but it requires mechanical & electrical skills & some soldering.

    Have you tried going into a Verizon store and ask someone at the service desk how much would it cost? Maybe they might give you a new phone. You have nothing to lose just by asking.

How can i get my samsung galaxy i5800 apollo to vibrate for text messages? I have checked the box that says vibrate, i have changed the volume on the phone so that it is on vibrate and i have also set the...


When you go to settings and set the ringtone for messages and click for vibrate while message enter ensure to hit save before closing the page. This should ensure the phone vibrates when message enters the phone. Although the only other reason why it won't vibrate is if the ******** is bad but if the phone vibrates when call comes in then this is not the problem just save the settings after it has been set.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Hello,

The problem you are experiencing is that your ringer/speaker is faulty,

The ringer/speaker is what sounds out when your phone is called or you receive a text message

The only solution is to have it changed

Problem solved!!

How do i turn my phone to silent mode?


To place the handset in Silent / Vibrate Mode
Step 1
To place the handset in Silent / Vibrate Only Mode, hold down the pound key (#) for about 2 seconds. To exit Silent / Vibrate Mode, perform the same action while in Silent / Vibrate Only Mode. You will see a confirmation message for Silent / Vibrate Only Mode, each time you enter or exit Silent / Vibrate Mode.
The SCH-U470 (Juke) handset will vibrate rather than ring when you receive a phone call, message or alert while in Silent Vibrate Only Mode.
Step 2
While in standby mode, press the volume key, located on the left side of the handset, then select either “Vibrate Only", “Alarm Only” or “All Sounds Off”. To disable perform the same action while in Silent / Vibrate Mode.
The SCH-U470 (Juke) handset will vibrate rather than ring when you receive a phone call, message or alert while in Silent / Vibrate Only Mode.

Ring vs vibrate


This phone allows you to independently set ring and vibrate modes. When you access "Call Vibrate" to set the mode, also visit the "Call Ringtone" menu to turn off the ringer.

You may want to leave the vibrate mode OFF and your ring tone ON and use the quick keys to switch between ring and vibrate. Two ways to do this, push and hold the # key to switch between normal mode (the settings you chose in "Call Ringtone" and "Call Vibrate") or use the side volume button to access the "Master Volume" and select "All Off", "Vibrate" or a ring tone volume.

If this helps you, please leave me a good rating.
