Customizing iPhone Vibration Pattern

For those who really like to tinker, iOS5 for the iPhone introduced the ability to change the default vibration pattern for each address book contact.  Here are the steps:

  • Go to Settings->General->Accessibility and turn on Custom Vibrations
  • To change a vibration pattern for a contact, edit the contact entry and select the vibration setting (just below ringtones).  You can select a different pattern or select "Create New Vibration".
  • Use the screen to tap out a new pattern and select Save.
  • You can create a new pattern directly from the Sounds section under Settings.
