Phone Vibrates when making Calls

Thanks for the replies. Sometimes when we hold it up to our ear, the screen goes off & it doesn't vibrate, but other times it does. Not sure if it is the angle holding it, or just that the screen has not gone off yet.

 

Anyway, thanks again, I'll keep testing it to see if I can tell why it does sometimes vibrate (right in her ear)..

The HTC EVO 4GLTE vibrates when making outgoing calls.. just before it rings. I searched & cannot find anyway to turn it off. I don't mind it, but it drives my wife crazy. Any help?

 

This is normal. It is designed that way if the screen is still on to alert you that the call has been established. When you hold it to your ear, by default, the screen turns off by the proximity sensor, thus you will hear the call connecting and the vibrate feature is not present.

I have been a Sprint Care Rep for a long time. HTC used to have a toggle to turn off the buzz but after the Hero, Sprint had the toggle removed as an option. I have no idea why they did this but I've many calls since then how much the buzz bugs people. Me, included!

One thing you can do is before the call connects, just bring the phone to your ear and then no buzz...!

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
