    Ever wonder what those colors represent. Here you go:


    Blue - Missed calls
    Green - SMS calls
    Yellow - Gtalk messages
    Purple - Gmail messages
    Red - all other notifications

    NoLED is kinda annoying since you can't use the lock button to open, and if you accidentally press it your phone freezes a few times

    All you do is push the home button when you have a NoLED notification. That opens up your lock screen. From there THEN you push your lock button.

    Great tip but not useful for colorblind people like myself.

    Yeah, the dev could do a 508 Compliant version like so:

    C- Missed calls
    S - SMS calls
    T - Gtalk messages
    G - Gmail messages
    O - all other notifications

    I realize that's a little more LED usage, but not much.

    just FYI, noLED is a great idea but a HUGE battery drain when its active - even though it only has a few pixels on. When its on, you lose around 10-15% of battery every hour.

    Yes I have also found that if NoLED is turned on, the battery will drain real fast.

    I assume this means every hour of which you have a missed notification and have not checked it?

    I use NoLED and haven't noticed much of any impact on battery life. This may possibly be due to the fact that I catch missed notifications (via NoLED) within a few minutes of them showing up.

    yea, it only drains WHEN it is active. Which, while sleeping, is when I don't catch it right away - and I usually dont have it plugged in while sleeping

    Same here...

    I generally only have NoLED on only when I need it. There is no reason to have it running if you won't be looking at the phone. I typically toggle it off with the widget when I sleep, plugged in or not. It may not be perfect but it is a great solution to the missing LED on this phone.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but...

    Is there a way to get this to run every time I lock my phone? Rather than just for new notifications? I'm trying to get creative with my random shutdown issues and have this running persistently when the phone's locked... but is there any way I can make that happen?

    NoLED is always On unless you did not make it auto-start on reboot.
    You do know that NoLED only triggers on events (sms,missed calls,emails, vmail,etc) ?
