    Hi...I'm curious to know if there is a way to increase the LED notifications for emails and texts to anything more then 5 minutes. It seems kinda pointless to notify for only 5 minutes especially if you are away from your phone or did not hear any notifiers. After 5 minutes you will still need to unlock the phone to check for something. I have just moved from the Motorola Droid to the Incredible and noticed that the Droid's LED notification blinked until the message was open regardless of that duration. Any ideas?

    This is an issue that has been identified by multiple people. Hopefully HTC / Verizon will put out an update that fixes it soon. Not a horrible bug, but yea its fairly ******ed.

    The other problem is how weak the LED is. It is hardly noticeable after coming from a Blackberry. Small issue is that the LED won't blink if you are charging.

    I think it may be a battery saver to only indicate/blink for 5-10 minutes, lets face it people who are away from their phone, or were unable to monitor their phone for 10 minutes or more, check it. i know people who check their phone constantly, or who are constantly on their phone, texting, web, email, or talking.

    I find it to be a non-issue, i do think the option to have a timer, 10, 20, 30, or 60 minutes could of been a feature.

    I think that if they're looking at blinking led's as a battery saver, they're starting on the wrong end of the issue.

    i agree as well thee led should be able to blink for as long as the user wants it to. also i don't get any notifications at all while its plugged in at night when i'm sleeping which kinda sucks.
