    I swear my Bold will just vibrate for no reason at all. It will be in my pocket, i will feel it vibrate, and then when i take it out to see whos calling/texting/emailing/ect, there is nothing there. Even if its sitting on the counter i swear i hear it vibrate, so i get up to look, nothing! I dont think i am going crazy, but maybe!


    Has anyone else had this happen?

    Apparently I'm crazy too. I even see my LED change color.

    Only happens to me if I accidentally press my Left Convenience Key, as it is designated for CaptureIt. Otherwise, I've never been victim to the Phantom Vibrate.

    I do, however, have to say that I'm with Chicklet. I swear I see my light blink, but when I go to check.... nothing.

    Mine does that, even when I'm not carrying it.

    It's actually a documented issue.

    When this happens to me, it is usually weather bug sending me an alert. I would look all over the Bold looking for it. :-)

    Same here. Only I have the right key set to CaptureIt. Then I look in my picture folder at the end of the day and I have a ton of screen shots in there.

    I used to get the phantom vibrate and LED a lot on my old Curve though.

    Okay I'm not joking. A couple of minutes after I posted on here, my phone vibrated and it wasn't a screen shot. WTF

    This is the second phone I have had the problem with and people tell me I'm crazy. At least others do too. My LED also blinks for no reason when it is sitting on my desk.

    lol

    are you talking about a fantom flash?

    You know something. It vibrated and there was no notification. Then my phone gave me the sound notification w/o vibrating for BBM and I had a message. Sort of like there was a delay between the vibe/tone. I'm doing a battery pull.

    Now that you've mentioned it; I haven't had the phantom vibe syndrome since I went to the extended battery with the larger back cover. Used to happen all the time with the standard battery.

    Maybe your Bold temporarily broke down the space/time continuum, which for a short time, allowed the speed of vibration to trump the speed of light and sound.

    Heck, if it's just gas, my Bold might need some dimeticone

    I thought my suit pocket was too loose and the friction between phone and fabric gave me the sensation that it was vibrating, but now that I read this... either we are indeed becoming looney or some Poltergeist inhabits our phones

    As a well documented psychiatrist once said..."PUT DOWN THE PIPE AND WALK AWAY"
    Looks like all the classic symptoms of Berry Withdrawl. Happens to me all the time while its in my pocket or on my hip but I have never had it happen while in my hand or while I am paying close attention to my Berry.

    Looks to me like you have two choices...
    1. Quit Cold Turkey and expect an increase of "phantom buzzes" till the addiction subsides.

    Or...
    2. TAKE ANOTHER HIT DUDE!
