    Default broken vibration in iphone
    Hey,

    I completely changed the back of my phone and everything works flawlessly except the vibration. It will not vibrate when i switch the silent button, when i charge it, or when i get a text. How should I fix it?

    You probably damaged the flex cable or the vibrator. check to make sure the vibrator is making contact with the logic board. Do you see the silent pop-up when toggling the switch? have you tried to toggle vibrate in settings->sounds?

    Thank you for the help!

    It turns out the logic board was not tight enough against the vibrator. I realigned the mechanism, tightened some screws and its as good as new.
