    I go on Message-Settings but there is no option for vibration
    Go to settings for the sound on your phone not messages

    Is there any way to have applications running simultaneously which can be switched between while running? Would launchers do this or do they just provide multiple home screens?

    I don't see much use in getting (paid) photo apps when you dont have the megapixels to do them justice?

    Yes, but I was thinking it would be more useful for scenarios involving switching between browser and notepad for example rather than angry birds lol.

    Motorola Atrix 4G. I find it pretty pointless having a dual core processor if it can't multi-task in the very real sense of the word.

    Two options that I can think of:

    1) Hold the home button to see selection of previously used apps.
    2) download "Swipe Pad" : https://market.android.com/details?i....android&hl=en

    Agree with G8D.

    I have an S2 so just touch one of the previously used apps since one of them is the one I need then just switch between them all.

    Thanks. I guess option 2 is the closest Im going to get to what I want, but it looks like a easier way of switching between apps the way you can do with a stock android kit, rather than swiping between active apps at a the flick of a finger. As much as I hate to say it, this does make me appreciate windows lol.

    There is what you are looking for in ICS, btw.

    Just might take a while to reach you.

    Considering they've had ICS for a while now, I'd hope so.

    But you never know. Might be better for sales of the Galaxy Nexus if they hold back on updating the SGS/2.

    It's all speculation at the moment anyway.

    Don't expect an update until the second quarter at the earliest.
