Constant vibration iPhone 3GS

Hey guys. My iPhone is vibrating almost non-stop. It goes in periods of about a week or two. I mean, for one week, it will might only vibrate when it's being used. Other weeks, it will vibrate all the time. There are also these "moments". I call them moments of clarity, where the iPhone acts normal for about an hour.

I've had two of these moments so far in about 5 months of vibration. It's pretty spectacular, you guys oughta be grateful.

Anyway, my question really is, do you think the problem is with the vibrating motor or more likely the circuits outside of the motor. More specifically, I'm thinking of purchasing a vibrating motor (link under this paragraph), and I'm not sure if that's going to fix the problem. So, I'm asking you guys, as professional smart people, do you the problem is with the vibrating module?

Vibrating motor:

More info:

  • I can feel the iPhone vibrate HARDER when it's supposed to be vibrating. IE, if I have it on, and it's doing it's vibrating thing, when I get a text it'll go something like: zzzzzZZZZzzzzz. As if like it gets an extra push of vibration. This leads me to believe there's some extra current that's being constantly supplied to the motor in addition to the regular current. A short circuit? Where? Questions...
  • When I turn off my phone (standby), there's about another 20 seconds of vibrating before it stops.
  • It will occasionally (not sure about the frequency, probably about once every 3-10 minutes), vibrate for anywhere from maybe 20 seconds to a minute (I'm guessing the phone wakes up for a bit to check stuff)

So, please, help me iFixit smart person, you're my only hope!

I don't know about being your iFixit smart person but i will give it a shot :P

To me this sounds like a hardware issue, however first thing is first, have you restored and updated to the latest firmware? If you have and the problem still purists then continue reading.

The motor itself won't be at fault, it will most likely be the flex ribbon that monitors the input/output of electricity towards certain parts of the phone, in this case the vibrator. You have two options.

One - Replace the flex ribbon

Two - Replace the entire back assembly (includes a new battery/flex ribbon/buttons etc.)

If i were you i would go for option two (link to battery installation, same procedure as back assembly replacement) as installing the flex ribbon (headphone jack flex) for the vibrator switch is a right pain in the A**.

Hope this helps :D


No need to solder anything, all you will need is some super glue and a lot of patients. Trick to getting the mute switch to stay in mute button? is a link to what i am talking about, and here is a link to the ribbon replacement :)

Thanks for the reply Martin :) I'm thinking of doing Option one because my battery is fine and $40 is a lot of money to just get rid of an annoyance. If I DO option one, would I need to solder anything?

i had the same problem. i had to open up the phone and replace the headphone jack assembly. it was about $5 off ebay... not an easy task for me. i dont have any experience fixing these things, it took me about 3 hours to complete. there's endless videos online that walk you thru the process
