    Hello all...

    I have a Garminfone, which is great, aside form the fact that it doesn't have LEDs, so there is no perpetual blink to notify me of an SMS.

    Anyone know of an app that would blink the screen periodically, just like the LED? I found one that will light up the screen for ten seconds upon receiving an SMS, but it doesn't continue to notify until you check your SMS.

    Thanks!!

    I couldn't come up with a quicker way to drain a battery and ruin a screen if I tried. :thinking:

    What about NoLED? Works great on the Vibrant, which also has no indicator LED. It has a pretty good set of options as well. And it's free. :)

    I considered that, but A) It's being charged almost all the time and B) I'd get to it pretty quick, so it wouldn't be blinking more than a couple minutes...and if it was a dim blink and only every few seconds...
