Has anyone noticed the vibrate feature in the G1 is WAY to subtle??

    I recently migrated from the Dash to the G1 and have noticed that the vibrate function is WAY to subtle. I work in an office so keep my phone on vibrate and in a case on my belt. (The same case in fact that my Dash was in) When I had my Dash my teeth would pretty much chatter every time the phone would ring, but with the G1 I have missed every single call that has come in as I haven't felt the vibration.

    I noticed that the vibrate is the same as when you long press the phone so this possibly could be a setting thing? I know with my Dash, different notifications had different vibrate settings. For example the ring was a long and jarring vibrate compared to an SMS or email which was just a little pulse. I really hope this isn't a hardware challenge and can be remedied by code as my coworkers are already getting sick of my "If Heaven Ain't A Lot Like Dixie" ring tone... :cool:

    Anyone else notice this?

    I also noticed this. I just chalked it up to something the guys at HTC thought they could cut back on to conserve the battery a little more.
