See my previous reply: I have read the manual several times over in the last 2 weeks.
If you do a search for "vibrate" on that manual, the results shows the word being used 4 times.
Vibrate for calls and touch only.
Other options pertains to sound only, not vibrate.
After scrolling an Alcatel Onyx, I wasnt able to find or activate a flashing notification for apps. I dont think the phone has this capability. You may want to look into downloading a 3rd party application to have that feature on your phone.
I was able to locate a vibrate function for applications within the phone but it is dependent upon the app. You can enable that setting two ways. If you go to the device settings, select "Applications", and select an application, you may be able to select the vibrate function from the application menu. Alternatively, from the home screen, you can select an application and navigate to the settings. From inside of the application, you can toggle the vibrate function for notifications.
I successfully navigated the vibrate settings within the calendar function on the Alcatel.
I hope this helps you with your question.

Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
