iPhone 4 - suppress notifications/vibrating when on a call

Fairly straightforward - when I'm on a call on my iPhone, if any emails or txts or push notifications come through the phone vibrates next to my face and plays a sound effect, which is distracting.

Is there any setting that suppresses notifications / buzzing / et.c while I'm on a phone call? I would have figured this should happen automatically but I guess it doesn't.

If it isn't a feature of iOS, are there any apps that do it? Or is there any jailbroken solutions?

In settings > soiunds, turn off vibrate while in 'silent' mode.  Use the 'silent' button on the upper left hand corner above the volume contols.  Move it to the 'outside'.

That should do it.  The messages will still come through but you won't feel or hear it.

Wouldn't this suppress vibrations and notification sounds all of the time? Not just when I'm on a phone call?

Yes but after the call just move the button over.  Don't think you'll get what you want to happen automatically.
