    what app are you guys using to change the color of the LED flash for different things (i.e.: missed call, voicemail, calendar reminder, email, gchat, etc.)?

    (mods: i'd like to keep this in the RAZR forum rather than the app forum. i did some searching and the answers to this question seem to vary greatly amongst different phones.)

    TIA.

    Well considering that it's Friday AND Veterans day I suppose we can accomodate you... this time! :p

    You have my approval (for what little my approval is worth) to keep this thread in the Droid Razr forum... ;)

    I'm using the app named "Missed Call" which does work in setting different LED colors. Unfortunately it is only for missed calls and SMS. If anyone finds one that does more please share your findings.

    hmm, having an issue here with text message LED notifications. light flow is working great with everything except texts. i'm using handcent and before i installed light flow, i had a blue LED for texts in the handcent settings and it worked great. then i installed light flow and the blue for texts stopped. i still get a notification bar notification and a sound notification but no more LED notification for texts. i tried turning off the LED notifications within the handcent app and using light flow for it but that didn't do it either.

    any ideas?

    uninstalled light flow and turned back on the blue led notification within handcent and now it's working again. there's apparently some kind of conflict there.

    if you guys have any issues (or successes!) please post them. i'm going to the gym - gonna play with this more this evening.

    hmm, still a no-go. and handcent isn't listed on their list of compatible apps, which i find a little strange - it's pretty popular. but anyway...looks like i need to find a different solution.

    nevermind, i found it. apparently they want you to check a special setting specifically to get handcent to work and now it works! saw this at the bottom of the dev's webpage:

    "v2.6.1
    ★ REBOOT YOUR PHONE AFTER THE UPGRADE ★
    New option to get Handcent working "Alternate on monitoring" - check this if having problems."
