How do I set my Galaxy device to vibrate?

Keeping track of your notifications is essential, you wouldn't want to miss an important message or alert because you didn't know it was there. However, there are times when it just isn't appropriate for your phone to ring. Fortunately, Samsung devices come with a range of options for vibration alerts, helping you know when something is going on without having to take your phone out of your pocket.
