Use Phone Vibration as Caller ID

One of the great things about Smartphones is using custom ring tones.  I love knowing who is calling just by listening to the ring.  That gives you an idea of whether the call is important or not.
However, when you are in a meeting or some other location where you can't  have your phone ringing, how do you identify who is calling?  Let's face it, there are times when you can't just pull your phone out of your pocket and look at it.
Fortunately, there is a way to use the iPhone to create a custom vibration that can tell you who is calling.
Simply open the important person in your contact list, click on "Edit" then when you see "vibration" click "Default".  Once you do that, you can either select some preset vibrations from a list or you can then create a new one of your liking by tapping on the screen to create the "beat" of the vibration.  By doing this, once you have the phone on "shake" you will get the vibration pattern you've chosen for the selected contact.  Now all you have to do is remember what pattern is assigned to whom.
You can also do this on Android,  but it will require an App.
