Hello,

My cell vibrates after approx. 5-10 mins when kept in silent mode. When i analyzed precisely, my cell goes to normal mode and then goes back to silent mode.

Can anyone help me please ?

No text messages/emails/phone calls coming in during this time?
It just randomly vibrates on its own?
With all the issues you post here, I would make an appointment, get to an Apple store and have a genius check your device. If that's possible.

Any chance this is related to your post in http://forums.everythingicafe.com/threads/strange-alert-for-1-second.104434/
That @Europa is helping you with?

While my phone is silent, I'll feel vibrations for alerts and updates such as new temperature readings from a weather app.

PS - that's not a complaint on my part, it's the way I like it.

YMMV

Turning on silent mode (using the toggle switch on the side) doesn't necessarily turn off vibration alerts. Check your Settings under Sounds, then the Vibrate on Silent and Vibrate on Ring options.

My aunt recently had this very issue - and I found it related to 2 factors:
  1. Her case was a snap-on case that attached to the back, and often clicked the vibration switch to and fro, wearing it down over time.
  2. And as a direct consequence of this, the switch ended up constantly toggling itself even after the case was removed. Obviously it had been weakened internally.
An Apple shop visit was on the cards, and they suggested replacing the phone, as it's difficult to find such a tiny part.

Vibration switch? My iPhones don't have a vibration switch. They have a sound switch and up and down volume controls. I never use vibrations because it eats battery.
