    Right now I have a green LED that blinks when I have a text or email, and a blue one that used to be for a facebook message, but now it is purple. How did this change?

    Where do I go to set up what the LED blinks for, and what color?

    THANKS!

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    that actually would be nice. but, i am happy with mine as it is at the time. mine blinks green for email, red for missed call, blinks blue for voicemail, and is solid blue for text message. it's perfect, because i know exactly what i missed by looking at the LED.

    There's an app in the market call "blink" that lets you change the LED colors. Although I think it only works for the standard notifications such as email/txt messages/calls etc. I don't think it works with facebook, gmail or other third party notifications. I haven't tried it, so I don't know for sure.

    "Missed Call" is another LED changing application that changes the color for multiple events - not just missed calls.

    I have Gmail Notifier to change my LED for received emails from gmail (blue), Handcent changes my LED color for received SMS (purple), K-9 changes my LED color for received work email (orange), and calendar notifications are stock (green).

    Blink didn't work reliably for me, and it doesn't cover all of the events I want. I'd pay good money to have a single, unified application that would let me manage all of my LED colors for system events. That'd be a $5 or $6 app for me.

    I uninstalled Blink. It annoyed me with the notifications.
