I'm after a new phone (currently have a w531) I'm specifically after one that can be set not to vibrate when the alarm goes off, I use my phone to wake me up in the morning, and I'm darn sick of waking up to "BZZZZZ" can anyone help?
My old nokia wouldn't vibrate when it was on charge which was handy...

I'm reasonably sure most of the S60 nokia's will let you change the settings for a profile so that the alarm doesn't trigger the vibrate.

I run an n95-8Gb (lurvly) and have a specific night profile setup for just that reason.  you can also get a program called Handy Profiles for the S60 phones which provides even more tweaking including things like automatically switching the profile based on time.

i have the w531 and i know what you mean... the vibrate is hideous... so i turned it off.
The volume control lets you turn it off, just hit it and untick the vibrate button.

I don't believe Telecom NZ has any S60 Nokias on its network...

I know the one the box you're talking about, it turns vibrate off for everything except the's badly programmed imo.
