    Search the market for Missed Message Flasher....i just installed and tested it and it works great. It flashes the lock screen to let you know you have a missed call, text or email. Simple and works well.

    I'll have to check out Missed Message Flasher... Coming from Blackberries, NoLED is a joke.

    Thanks for the tip. Giving this a shot. Because NoLED SUCKS lol

    Edit: Installed. Works great. A lot better then NoLED because it actually flashes the whole screen which is better visually to the eye ;)

    Why do people insist on having an LED? Is unlocking the phone and pressing a button too hard sometimes?

    I'm sure if pavlov can condition a dog to drool when it hears a bell, people can condition themselves to hit the home button when noled blinks.

    Wouldn't flashing the lock screen drain the already Sh**y battery?

    I tried Missed Message a few days ago. It worked great for the first day, but hasn't worked since.

    I'll give it another try after it's a bit more stable.

    This will kill the battery much more than NoLed.

    Is there a repercussion with constantly flashing the screen such as shortened life of the pixels?
