    Has anyone found a way to get the clock to stop flashing when the phone is in sleep mode and still get notifications? It is driving me nuts flashing on my desk all day.

    Settings - Active Notifications - Uncheck Active Display?

    That eliminates all visual notifications. I still need to know when I get a message.

    I've had my phone on my desk all day, right in front of me, and have not noticed it flash the time at me randomly.

    Sitting here for a solid 5 minutes staring right at it... no time.

    Only shows the time if you lift the thing up (or pull it out of your pocket or whatever)... which is a feature I quite like.

    Its only flashing because you still have notifications or because you keep touching it... fix one of those two issues...

    It flashes if you have notifications that have not been closed out. That said I have it sitting on my desk and I really don't notice it. But I don't stare at my phone all day either.
