    Is there any way to program the LG Mach to display a light when I have a text or phone message? The old obsolete phone I had used a red blinking light to notify me. This requires me to pick it up, turn it on, etc.

    thanks

  2. If you have rooted your phone, get LG notifications off the play store. It lights up the bottom home row of your touch screen.

    This phone has a proper notification LED though... There must be some way to control it. I've been on kind of a tear lately fixing the assorted stupidities of the Mach... I will see if I can figure anything out.
     
  4. Yeah, it does, I spent a week attempting to get that thing to work. There is a few apps that do kinda work, but not the way I expected, or wanted them to.

    ...Took me about 30 seconds of Googling to find an app called "Light Manager" you can get from the play store. Works like a charm.

    - I use Handcent SMS, and had to disable the LED notification that it already has, which I don't think was working anyway.
    - Custom colors don't work although they come close to being right...

    On second look, a different app called Light Flow Light seems to be better. I couldn't make Light Manager work with gmail, but Light Flow Lite does it all...

    Slimer thanks for posting your findings, I definitely use that feature on the Transform Ultra and I hate phones that lose features. I'm already pissed that I'm missing real, tangible hardware face buttons instead of this capacitive touch baloney (I'm old-school). Why Boost and prepaid carriers in general hate QWERTY Android users so much, I have no freaking clue. They just give us the scraps, they didn't even bother to give us a better than 0.3MP front facing camera.
