Mine intermittenly works and then doesn't. For example i would switch the silencer to vibe, it will vibe, but then when i put it up and back down it WONT. it still works when i get a text. what should i do about this because its really annoying when it works then 2 seconds later it wont. Should I take it to the Apple Store?

Try a hard reset first. That is hold the home and off buttons at the same time to turn the phone off. See if that helps. If not you could do a restore through iTunes.

I'm really afraid to do that, because my I restored my computer and i wiped out my whole iTunes library. Is theyre any way i could get the music off the iPhone?

Do what dturner recommended, and then visit Apple. They'll either fix it on the spt or provide you with a new one. Note that they will refuse service on a jailbroken and/or unlocked iPhone.

I did the hard reset, it fixed it a little, but the more i do it, the less vibe i hear.
Its almost like the power of the vibe goes lower and lower everytime i switch it.

I'd say it's a hardware issue. Apple will most likely give you a new one.

Might as well do a restore. If Apple gives you another phone, your in the same boat. Do a backup before you restore. If this doesn't work it is Apple time I guess.:(
