Vibration alert not working

I am trying to use vibration alert with notification and flash lights
within a service. I wrote the following code:

        private void vibrationAlert() {
                int icon = R.drawable.icon;
                CharSequence tickerText = "Some text";
                long when = System.currentTimeMillis() + 2000;

                Notification notification = new Notification(icon, tickerText,
                Context context = getApplicationContext();
                CharSequence contentTitle = "Some text";
                //CharSequence contentText = "Some text";
                Intent notificationIntent = new Intent(this,
                PendingIntent contentIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(this, 0,
notificationIntent, 0);

                notification.setLatestEventInfo(context, contentTitle, 
                notification.defaults |= Notification.DEFAULT_VIBRATE;
                long[] vibrate = {0,100,200,300};
                notification.vibrate = vibrate;
                notification.defaults |= Notification.DEFAULT_LIGHTS;
                notification.ledARGB = 0xff00ff00;
                notification.ledOnMS = 300;
                notification.ledOffMS = 1000;
                notification.flags |= Notification.FLAG_SHOW_LIGHTS;
                NotificationManager nm = (NotificationManager) getSystemService
                nm.notify(MY_ID, notification);

But when I run my application, I get the following error:

08-04 20:27:20.228: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(891): Uncaught handler:
thread main exiting due to uncaught exception
08-04 20:27:20.317: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(891):

08-04 20:27:20.317: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(891):     at

In the manifest file I have added the following lines in manifest,
application, activity and the service element:


But I am still getting the error. It is obvious that I am making some
mistake defining the permissions. Can anyone tell me what I am doing
wrong? I am using Android 1.5_r3.

 ou don't need any permissions to use the LED notification,
but for the Vibrate, you will need to use:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE" />
ratehr than
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATION" />

My timezone is C.S.T. in U.S., so it has a raw offset of -6 from GMT

tell me why this is happening and how it can be corrected?
