Nokia phones turn off vibration alarm when connected to a charger

Some Nokia phones deactivate vibrato alarm when connected to a charger. This bug goes back to models as old as the 3330 and there are reports (see link) for others as well. Apparently, that is “Not A Bug, But A Feature”™ according to the linked forums, but it still means one has to remember changing the profile from vibra-only to one with ringtone enabled. If you are a sensible person, you turn your gadgets silent in public. But that probably had not been anticipated by Nokia back then. And now we have blaring ringtones everywhere—but that is a topic for another time.
