I love my Xperia Mini Pro but the vibrate settings are bamboozling me. You can choose 'always, never, only when silent, only when not silent' from the settings menu - i keep my phone on my wooden desk in the evenings/when in bed, so i like to turn vibrate off as otherwise it vibrates throughout house and annoys everyone. Therefore i choose 'never' but keep my tones on so i know when i have a text. It ALWAYS vibrates (plus plays tones) when i get a text. The only way i can get it to stop is by keeping vibrate at 'never' but also turning phone to silent, which is not what i want.
Aswell as this you can choose to turn 'haptic feedback' off to stop it doing a short sharp burst of vibration when pressing soft keys and certain touchscreen keys, however i can't make it stop vibrating when i am using the on-screen keyboard to write a text. I have every single vibrate setting to 'off' or 'never' and i just can't make them stop.
I had to send phone off for a hardware repair and mentioned these things at the same time, but nothing has changed since i recieved the phone back. Has anyone else had these problems/ know how to turn the vibrate off?
My phone also sometimes doesn't play the ringtone/text tone when recieving a call/text (when turned on loud and previously working fine, it will sometimes just randomly not play), plus i get the phantom missed calls that i have seen mentioned on here. All in all very annoying, i would like a straight swap but issues started 2 weeks after getting phone - grr!

right, lets see if we can help.
I'm going to assume you're using the default Messaging app.
Open the app
Press the Menu button
You should see options for Notifications - untick Notification vibration
from the home screen
Press the Menu button
Scroll down to Language & Keyboard Settings
In the following menu, choose International keyboard (should be at the bottom)
Untick Vibration on keypress
can't really comment on the other problems - I've got the Arc. I get the phantom missed calls
from time to time, usually just after I've restarted the phone....if my phone is left on all the time,
problem doesn't appear.
