    When I get a call, email, text message..etc.. my phone will make a noise once.. and then the LED will flash green.

    HOWEVER.. if I don't notice it.. it seems after a few minutes the LED stop blinking green. I often leave my phone on my night stand.. step out of the room for awhile.. come back.. look at the phone and the LED is not blinking.. but when I wake up the phone I show a missed call, new email, new text, etc.

    Is this how it is supposed to work?? should the green LED keep flashing until I check the phone?

    It stops after 5 minutes to conserve battery.

    Which is dumb since that little LED can't be using THAT much power...

    You do realize that your apps can use the LED for different things and can change it's color? I don't understand what makes you think it is not customizable.

    From what I read it does not work. People have tried making it blink colors like cyan and it did not do anything.

    this. the settings i have tried on handcent do not seem to translate to reality. plus the fact that the LED is so recessed within the body that you can't see it unless you are floating directly over it

    I also read in another thread here that the LED is only bi-color in the DI, green and orange, not the nifty RGB LED that most newer phones (by newer I mean even my old BlackBerry Curve 8330 that had an amazingly bright RGB notification LED) have. Why they put a dim, wimpy bi-color only LED on the DI is beyond me...

    I have a huge issue with this as well. I hate how its so recessed that the ONLY way I can see the light is if I'm looking straight-on. And even then, I have to be within 2 feet or else its not bright enough.:rolleyes:

    Missed Reminders will allow for flashing more than 5 min. Enjoy

    Agreed. I really wish there was another option for notification alerts. It's a shame the trackpad can't light up.

    I have no idea what the dev means. It works fine on my Incredible. I tried Missed Call, but it doesn't work with Gmail and Mail.

    Yes I really miss that feature as well, but that is about it... I rather have a phone that can be used as a phone rather than lit up trackball

    Ya now that you mention it that is kind of strange how that works :)

    ^ That used to happen with some of my older dumbphones, where the ENTIRE screen would light up and say "LOW BATTERY." It'd drive me crazy considering I would try to leave the display off so I can conserve, yet every 5 minutes it would turn on to tell me my battery was going to die. Talk about irony.

    Many things work like that if you think about it. My Razr beeped, my Omnia beeped, my LED headlamp has an additional red LED that flashes when the battery is low. My laptop displays a pop-up. Many new autos have a lamp on the dash that tells you when your low on fuel (requires about as much energy as the Inc. LED I'm sure and draws more from the alternator making the engine work harder using more fuel;)), but you get my drift.
