    Whenever I reboot my phone or pull the battery, my indicator light flashes green after the screen goes to sleep. When I wake the phone to check for notifications I have no voicemails, missed calls, missed texts, GMails, or anything. Then it finally goes away after a using the phone for a bit. This happening to others too?

    Do you have any other email accounts setup on the phone? Twitter or Facebook notifications?

    I do have a couple yahoo accounts setup... I checked them and they had no new email either. I do not have facebook or twitter setup on my phone.

    Mine did this too plus I was having really bad battery life and a high cell standby % that was virtually unaffected by any use of the phone. I exchanged my Bionic for a new one and now my battery last almost twice as long as it did on the first one, my cell standby adjust based on use and the led no longer blinks for no reason.

    The EXACT same thing happens on my Droid 3. Must be some weird Motorola issue. It's more of an annoyance more than anything, since it normally stops within 10 minutes or so of just using my phone.

    I could not find it written anywhere ... I was confused for a while ... I believe it is just telling you that there is a Notification that you have not viewed.

    Pull down the notification overlay and check.

    I use VolumerPro and it defaults to posting a notification when it loads. This turns on the blinking green light.

    Albeit intermittently, mine is behaving the same way. I'm using Launcher Pro and wonder if there's something going on in the other "Home" environment that's causing the issue? I will check with Home Switcher next time it happens and report back.

    Alright, well this still happens on my Droid 3, but I think I just had a breakthrough. Restarted my phone, light starts blinking for no reason. There are absolutely no notifications in the notification bar, however, if i pull down on it and bring it back up... the light stops flashing. Give it a shot.

    This happens sometimes on my Bionic after a reboot, but after just doing what you suggested the light went away. Must be some sort of moto bug. I too use a different launcher (GO Launcher EX). Maybe that is why, but thank you for your help.
