    The phone is stuck in the sleep/black screen and will not stop vibrating. It was just sitting on the table next to me and it started the vibration and still has not stopped. I am unable to wake the phone up or turn it off/on!

    Is there anyway to manually restart the phone? Hold power/volume key? Pop out the Sim Card? Anything? Lol is this a new one or has anyone had this happen to them before? I must say if this is a first I am almost not even mad. Well, I guess a little mad since the ATT store is closed for the night so I have to go without a phone/vibrator for the night...

    You can do a reset by holding all 4 buttons on the right edge of the phone for 5-10 seconds. See if that does the trick..

    That let me restart the phone after the vibrating stopped. While it was vibrating, though, the phone would not respond to the reset. Weird, but it is working for now. I guess. Maybe I see a Galaxy S III in my future..

    I think you better exchange that on the company or store in which you buy your phone.

    That's a plan. Because as everybody knows, Samsung nor android has EVER has any kind of a hardware or software problem. /end sarcasm

    Not sure if OP and others have found the solution - but it seems Windows Phones do this (keep on vibrating in short bursts) if they are charging while off.
    I turned my 810 on while charging and then it stopped vibrating.
    Odd, but I'll let it slide.

    This always happens to me on my lumia 620 I do a soft reset by holding down DOWN VOLUME key and POWER key. This will make your phone restart.

    You can't disable haptic feedback.

    If your Lumia doesn't respond to light reset(volume buttons and power button) Then you can try a more effective reset... Taking your battery out while it heavily vibrating and then rebooting the phone.

    Or, if its only light vibrates you just need to go to settings and go to ringtones and sounds and then untick all of the vibrate boxes.

    My 950xl just did the same. Had to pull the battery to get the phone to stop vibrating. The phone and battery was extremely hot. After I started the phone up again, I had a look at the battery usage, WhatsApp was listed at 58% for the last 24 hours. Might have been a message that came through that triggered this. I've had the phone for almost three months now and this is the time I've had any issues. Battery life can easily last me two days on mild usage.
    I hope this was just a one time thing.
