    Hi

    Is there any way to make the LED flash continually on the Desire to notify a new email or message ? My phone does this initially but stops flashing after some time (I'm not sure how long). I haven't managed to find a setting yo control this yet.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks, Peter

    Certainly on Handcent SMS you can set number of reminders and LED flash frequency when you get a text. I guess it's also available on the stock application if that's what you're using? Have a look under settings and then notifications.

    Settings / Sound & Display / Notification Flash is the closest I can find but that just turns it on or off for various events and doesn't control how long it will do it for.

    As far as I'm aware, it's not something which can be changed with the stock app.

    There are apps which enable the LED to flash for longer periods of time, or even unlimited time periods. I think these range from different messaging apps to apps which only add the required feature to the stock app.

    Wow this is a coinsidence but Handcent have just updated its app with support for the LED on the desire! Ive been testing it out and you can have some funky colours such as cyan and blue, choose the blink rate, and it always stays constantly blinking

    Pretty cool!

    If you dont have this app, its a must!

    Handcent worked fine for me until the update - now I'm just getting a solid blue LED when I get a text message. It blinked perfectly before and all my settings are the same. Anyone else experienced this? :mad:

    Not sure to be honest - how long does it flash for?

    Have you seen that in settings you can select Enable Reminders and then choose how many reminders you get and the time period between them? I guess these reminders will flash the LED as well as the audible notification. You can also set it to switch the screen on when it reminds you.

    Yes, I was also getting this. Changed the led to amber on Handcent and after getting a new message it seemed to be alright again.

    Is there any way of doing this without Handcent?
    I want notifications to stay on for emails, missed calls, etc.

    Big warning with this app. I used it for quite a while and, although it does do what it's supposed to do quite well, it prevents the phone from sleeping; which may have a big adverse affect on your battery life.

    I've been using it since I got my desire in April, and my battery seems just as good as anybody else's, if not a lot better than some

    Thanks for the app, but I am not able to get it to work.. :confused:
    I set the app (enabled the service and everything, configured LED blink), disabled the LED notifications from the phone's settings, and gave myself a missed call from the landline. No LED blink. Not once.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Notify Desire is an Android app for LED notification on HTC Desire. It has Vibration reminder as well (vibrate every minute, 3 minute etc) until you turn on the screen.

    Hi androidlolipop and welcome to AF,

    This particular forum is for the HTC Desire, and the Explorer will be running a later version of HTC's software. So you'll probably get a better answer if you ask in the Explorer forum, HTC Explorer - Android Forums

    Good luck!
