With iOS 5 upon us, does the iPhone 4 still vibrate in your ear if you receive a text message (or any kind of notification) during a call?

If the answer is no, that's definitely something to be added to this list. – Nick Chammas Oct 20 '11 at 21:49

Haven't tried with text messages, but with Whatsapp and emails it does, unfortunately :(

So to answer the second part of your question, yes notifications vibrates during call.

I'm assuming the same would apply to text messages then. :( – Nick Chammas Oct 24 '11 at 18:53

I don't know for sure if it vibrates (if silent), but it most certainly plays notification sounds for text messages.
