Your mobile device supports a feature called Smart alert. Smart alert is a motion gesture that will cause your device to vibrate when you pick it up and notifications, such as missed calls or new messages, are waiting.

You can turn on this feature in the Motions and gestures settings menu. From the Home screen touch Apps Apps Icon > Settings Settings Icon > Motions and gestures Settings Motions and Gestures Icon . Touch Smart alert and then touch the switch Slider Off to turn Smart alert on Slider On .
