I am on my second phone and it still continues to vibrate after I answer it. I have it set on vibrate then ring. Both V3a's have been brand new from Alltel. They said they have never heard of this. I had it set on a different ring tone and it did not keep vibrating after I answered. But I changed it to "notify" ring and it keeps vibrating after I answer the Call. I am wondering if it is a glitch in the software or something.

1. Make sure that the "Smart Profile: Face Down" feature is enabled. 2. Hold the phone face up in your palm. 3. Call your Droid X from another phone. 4. As the phone is vibrating, DO NOT ANSWER. 5. Still holding the phone, flip the phone face down as it vibrates. 6. Still holding it face down, hit your volume key to silence the phone. 7. Flip the phone back over so it's face up. You should feel a quick vibrating jolt indicating the ringer is back on. 8. End the call. It shouldn't matter which phone you end the call from, as feeling the jolt is the key. 9. Leave phone face up and call yourself again. If the ringer is now working again, turn OFF "Smart Profile: Face Down" until there's a true fix. 10. If it does not work initially, try all of the steps again a few more times and hope you get lucky.
Unclear if you're using the TMobile ring tones or some that you have downloaded (or created). BION, I got longer ring times by using longer ring tone recordings. (I got mine from free sites on the net, most tones created by people from their music collections.) If you are using ring tones that aren't from T-Mobile, switch to a TM ring tone and see if that makes a difference. (If it does, then shop around for some new ring tones - the old ones were causing a problem.)
Another possibility is to check settings/phone/auto answer. Be sure this is set to "never." Also check Call Barring. Try having your blocking of incoming calls "off."
And last: put profile on "vibrate" and call yourself. Do you get more than one second of vibration? If you don't, then it's probably a phone malfunction, but if you do, it's a ring tone problem. Fairly easy to deal with. Good luck!
I can see where this feature can seem somewhat inconsistent. But if you think of it like a phone ringing, it is easier to understand. Once you have answered the phone, the phone stops ringing. And the person who called you never experiences a ring on their end.
Page 26: VibraCall is a vibrating alert that notifies you that your radio is receiving a message. This is useful in noisy environments. When the alert is on, the radio
vibrates once every 30 seconds when you receive a message on the channel and
code you set.
• To turn vibrating alerts on, press menu until the vibrating radio symbol is displayed, then press the plus (+) button to display the letter Y for Yes.
• To turn vibrating alerts off, press menu until the vibrating radio symbol is displayed, then press the minus (-) button until the minus symbol (-) is displayed.
Sounds like the phone isn't detecting that it has been closed. I have had a reconditioned v3a and to be honest, there was no difference between it and my old one. It looked brand new, and acted brand new. In fact, it even had a 0:00 call timer on it. I'd say let them replace it.
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.
