    Is it just me or is the iPhone 4 vibrator very very faint? I can barely hear it.

    I noticed this with my 3G too. Comparing both to my 3G on the other hand shows a difference. So yes I would say it's softer

    you realize that vibrate is suppose to be felt, not heard right? Thats kind of the whole point.

    Vibration makes sound. The bigger the vibration the louder the sound.

    that is true yes but sound we use everyday is made by very high frequency vibrations, the vibrator on you phone is a very low frequency vibration compared to speakers and what not, I have had phones with silent vibrate and some where its louder than the ringer, if you want to hear your phone just turn on your ringer.

    The point of the vibrate option is so that others around you don't hear the device; only you should feel it. Therefore, the quieter the vibration, the better.

    If you want to hear the phone, put it on normal ringer.

    The point is that I put my phone on my table at work. Usually when I receive a text I can hear it vibrating, but this time I keep missing texts. Also, I keep not feeling the vibration in my pocket. This problem never occurred with my iPhone 3G and I was wondering if it was normal.

    The vibration on the iP4 isn't as strong as on the previous iPhones, I can sorta tell the difference, it is hard to feel (in your pocket) when you're walking or whatever....but sitting still, I can feel it, and on my desk at work (just like you), I CAN hear it....but not that good when the ringer is on
