    For those (very very few of us) who have played with the Evo, can you tell me if there is an LED notification light on front ? I am referring to when you get a new text message, or a missed call, so you dont have to turn on the screen....

    Thanks, and only about 14 days to go ! :D

    Honestly, its just so convenient to look at my phone from a distance and be able to tell if I have a missed call or text, without having to always turn the screen on to check. :rolleyes:

    I have not seen anything about this, but I believe there isnt any light. Normally, this would actually be a deal breaker for me, but this phone excels everywhere else, that I should be able to get by without the light :)

    ITA. I really hope it does. It would make it that much better.

    Yes there is one, I have seen it in a couple of the videos, it's in the top left of the speaker grill.

    I've seen the LED but no idea if it indicates messages or just signal.

    I think there is a green LED for something that you missed and a red charging LED.

    But don't quote me on that.

    That makes sense... I hope so.

    This would be great. My current phone is permanently blinking green, (indicated phone is on, and in service). It changes to Orange when I receive a text or miss a call.

    But if the Evo light is ALWAYS off, until you get a text, it would be better. The constant blinking on my current phone makes me look at it more times than I need to... specially in the dark :rolleyes:

    constant blinking makes zero sense... what an odd feature. glad I've never had a device that did that.

    Yes its on my PPC6800 (HTC MOGUL)... its a constant green led. ANd its not a small one like the G1, its a huge light. It pretty much lights my bedroom at night if its real dark with every blink.... :rolleyes:

    My blackberry blinks blue when connected to bluetooth, red when I have a message or missed call. It would seem weird to have it flash green "just because."

    I hope its a tri color LED, like the Nexus One. That way it can do a lot of different colors.

    There is a program for the mogul made by no2chem (nuerom.com) that will kill the signal LED and let it only blink when there is a purpose (new sms, email, missed call, etc). He has a program where you can control the different LEDs for different events. For example, make it blink blue (Mogul has a blue LED too) for a new email.

    Sorry to go into that on an Android forum. I created an earlier version of the program for the Mogul (stroths LED Killer) before no2chem perfected it.

    Hey guys and dolls, HTC.Evolution just said in his review thread that it does have an LED notification for e-mail. Still waiting for him to confirm if it's for texts and calls as well, but I don't see why it wouldn't.

    The LED goes orange when charging, solid green when full. It flashes green when you have missed something. I'm pretty sure there is a control for it in settings.
    mrk and hopalee like this.

    Will the notification LED flash for more than 5 min. With or w/o 3rd party apps?

    i suspect it is like the HTC Hero...

    LED Notification = YES
    Green blinking = missed something: call, email, text..etc
    time of notification = 5 mins then stops!!!
    Orange solid = charging
    Orange blinking = battery low

    i read on a thread, that android was programed only to 5 mins of notification. Not sure why. Maybe 2.2 will change that up.
