When an iPhone 5c vibrate function isn't working it can really damage the ability to enjoy your phone. This is especially true for anyone who regularly has to deal with business meetings, goes to see shows or attends other events where phones should be kept on silent, the vibrate function is crucial. Like all iPhone errors, you want to hope that this problem exists purely on a software level, so that you don't have to deal with the problem of reaching in and changing your vibrate array within your iPhone 5c. Luckily, there are a few methods whereby you can figure out how whether or not you're dealing with a software problem and fix it.
When dealing with troubleshooting settings, it may be useful to verify that you are set on silent mode to check for vibration. If that doesn't work, go to Settings, then Sounds, the turn on Vibrate on Ring and Vibrate on Silent in order to try to get it to vibrate that way. Sometimes people will leave the Do Not Disturb function on, which is accessed by swiping up from the bottom. If this is on, then the phone will not vibrate even when it is told to by other settings. If none of these work, and even turning the phone off and on again through a restart doesn't work, you may have a hardware problem. The only other option is to reset your phone to factory settings, which you can do if you've backed up your other information to the cloud.
