    Hello - another setting I must be missing - when I have a missed call, new text or email I do not have a flashing LED on the front of my phone so I have to wake up the phone every so often to check for messages if I am at work and cannot hear it. I've checked all through settings aaaaaaaaaaand I'm sure I missed something.

    You actually aren't overlooking anything. The Acclaim has no notification LED to speak of. It does, however, shows you notifications for missed calls, texts, and emails in the status bar. A quick tap of the power button when your screen is off and you should readily see any alerts!!

    Hope this info helps!

    If I look in the top left hand corner of my acclaim I can see what appears to be two small LED lights?

    If not LED lights then what are they?

    Those are actually sensors the phone uses to detect your face when you are on a call. You may have noticed your screen turning on and off automatically as you press the phone up to, and remove it from your ear. This is an essential function for capacitive screens since they are sensitive to the conductive nature of human flesh and accidental button pressing would occur otherwise.

    I know, I'm a nerd. But hopefully a helpful one!!!
