Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge random vibrations every 30 seconds

My galaxy s6 edge keeps vibrating once every 30 seconds and there is no notifications at all. I have the notification reminder off, and even my phone is on silent, but the phone keeps vibrating once ever 30 seconds.

Thanks for the help,  I put the phone into safe mode and then restarted the phone. After that the vibrations stopped. Still not exactly sure what caused the vibrations, but it seems like the problem has cleared up.

Hello there, @useruA3AyP9ZJf. We're glad you reached out here with your concern.
Let's try some troubleshooting steps, just let us know how these go!

  1. Are all your Apps are up to date? You have 2 places that you need to look. Google Play store and Galaxy app store. Go to both and check My Apps. Make sure there is no app that needs updating. 
  2. Is your phone OS up to date? Go to Settings, About phone and check for software update. Make sure you have the latest phone software. 
  3. Clear phone cache. Instructions are here.
  4. Clear Application cache and sometime Application data. Instructions are here.
  5. Restart your phone in Safe mode. This is just to help you isolate the issue if it is caused by 3rd part apps. Instructions are here.

If those don't help, we certainly want to assist you further with this matter. To better do that, can we have some added details about your specific device and this concern? Things that will help the most would be the exact model number and Baseband version (both under Settings>About Device) for your device as well as your carrier. Thanks!

These regular vibrations at a set time interval are not caused by Notifications (which are random) but by Google Play Services. The SOLUTION is to uninstall or delete Google Play Services (specially the update), and do not reinstall ever again. Go to the "Task Manager" on your phone and under "Downloads" simply choose to uninstall Google Play Services. This is what was causing the constant vibrating on the phone. Plus it also rendered useless the Play Store app, so no applications could be installed or updated. Alfred
