    Is there an option to disable the LED flashing when you have a low battery?

    I know I have a low battery, I don't need to be continually reminded. I keep thinking I have a new message or something. (I know they flash green but still...:p)

    :-D me too. I don't need constantly reminding
    for the last few hours of charge!

    I bet if this is possible will need to root

    If your battery is that low, it's well past time to charge it up again. So the low battery warning is a good thing since Li-Ion batteries work best and last much longer when topped up rather than run down to empty. If the low warning beeps, turn the phone off and get it to a charging cable ASAP and top it up to a full charge. Letting it run down more just kills it faster meaning a replacement will be needed sooner, costing you money sooner than necessary. Personally I charge it when it hits 50% or less. A few times it got down to 30%, but I charge it ASAP after that. I ran it down to shutdown only a couple of times to see how long it really lasts. But normally it gets a top up 3-5 times a week.

    But hey, YMMV.

    oh right I thought it was best to let it
    run down as much as loss before doing full
    charge? I've always done this with previous
    phones. does this have different type of battery?
    cheers

    Any device that uses Lithium-Ion (LiIon) technology should never be run all the way down. Google it for info...
