    Hello,

    Big newb here. How do I make the "new email" flashing green LED continue to flash forever or until I mess with the phone? It works fine, but stops flashing after a while so if I'm not staring at my phone, I could miss the LED indicator and not realize I got a new email.

    Using the Gmail application (not the HTC email program).

    What causes the LED to stop flashing after a while? Is it because the phone is going into a deeper sleep mode that I could configure, or is it because the flashing LED indications stop and there is nothing you can do about it?

    I checked under notifications and didn't see any setting for "duration" of the flashing LED indicator for emails.

    It may be an HTC thing. I had an HTC TP2 before the Evo and the LED indicator would flash for awhile and then stop.

    I installed Missed Reminder from the Market. It will let you customize reminders for missed calls, gmails, texts, mms, etc. :)

    Since you've added the app, do you notice that your LED indicator continues to flash until you either check the message or wake the phone up?

    Yes, it flashes until you open up the app. I just tested it with Gmail (have only used it with SMS, phone calls, etc.). It's very customizable too. They actually sent out an update not too long ago to include Gmail in their list. I like it.

    Ditto. Came from a blackberry with berrybuzz installed so this is really bugging me.

    Edit: Missed Reminder has been working funny for me. Trying out Missed Call instead. Better Market reviews.
