    1. Hi Ashley Lockhart,
      Thanks for coming.
      "Vibrate with ringing" option only available if you enable Sound on your phone or in other word this option will be grayed out/disabled if your phone is in the silent/vibrate mode. You can enable Sound by swiping down the top of the screen and then enable "Sound" (the button is in the right side of the GPS button), the button will shows green when it's enabled.
