Please add vibration notification when an outgoing call is connected and proximity sensor is not covered (which means you don't have the phone raised to your year). Make it at least optional to set such notification.

It is very useful - you save your braincells :) (the phone is most active when connecting the call) and it is comfortable to raise the phone to your ear only when and if the other side picks the call up. Meanwhile, you can do other things. I also try to emulate this behavior on Jolla, but I need to constantly look on the screen.

I miss this functionality from N900 where it was added by the community in a form of a daemon. See:

(ANNOUNCE) Daemon for Vibration after call is connected

Nice idea. Not so much because its something that I'd prefer, but it makes a lot of sense as an accessibility feature too.

I am not yet sure that I would like this feature in general (so far I have switched to loud speaker when having longer waiting times). So please make this option user selectable.

Loud speaker is not always feasible - for example when talking with friends or while in public transport - it is just weird to be on loud speaker there and you never know what others might hear before you put it back on phone speaker. It can be optional, but I don't see any drawbacks.

Not only N900, N9 also has at least 2 apps that do the same (Vibrateme, Call Connected Vibration), not to mention older Nokia phones, even such "low end" like C2-03 which have this feature included out of the box.

I would also like the pulley menue to vibrate when using it for active call... What I like about now is that when the phone app pushed to background while ringing it will reappear/open when the called person pick up - maybe a small workaround for you. ;)
