Try going to

- Settings

- Sounds & Haptics

and seeing whether changing settings (with regard to vibrating for notifications, perhaps notifications of mail or of text messages) will help.

So, also, go to

Settings

Sounds

New Mail

Vibration

set it to NONE.

Also check here:

Settings

Notification Center

Mail

choose the Account for your email

Tap on Alerts, Alert Tone and Vibration

Set them to NONE.

This ought to cure the problem, largely if not quite completely (to be complete, set Alerts of all sorts to NONE for *all* email accounts on your iPhone.)

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

If you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond.

Thanks.
