    Anyone unless notice the LED blinking stops after a little while...My Wife's Moto Droid keeps blinking until you check the alert.

    Thanks

    When the Droid was updated to 2.1, the notification would no longer blink when the screen was turned on. Could this be what is happening for you?

    No ...I wake up in the morning and no flashing on the led...i unlock the phone to notice i have some notification email sms etc but the light was not blinking. It will blink when it first comes in but then after some time it will stop.

    I think I read that there is a timer on the LED blinking and it will only blink for a notification for a set amount of time (10 minutes or something I think).

    Nope, mine hasn't worked since I got it yesterday morning...

    Where is the set time? I can email myself right now with my phone sitting next to me and no LED lights up so that statement is false.

    This is f-ing ridiculous. I've missed every email/phone call since getting my DI because the stupid LED doesn't blink worth shiet.

    I went into Programs/Settings/Sound & Display/Notification Flash. Everything has been checked since I got the phone. Suck balls..

    same problem here. its pretty annoying
     
  9. Its set to a certain time to blink and then turn off to conserve battery. Nothing is wrong with your phone, it is definitely a gripe about the phone, especially when they give you no option to set the blinking to go longer.

  11. Not only does it stop blinking, the light is so recessed/dim that if you're not directly infront of it in a dark room, you won't see it.:(

    I believe there's an app that you can DL which will fix this issue...I can't think of the name though, but I will look for it

    Awesome hope you can find it.
     
  14. I'd love to see this if there is. I hate having to see my LED not blinking when I have 3 text messages from an hour ago.

    Ok, check out the app called "Missed Call"

    I believe this was the one...Only thing that won't work unfortunately is selecting the different colors for the notification LED, as the Incredible isn't capable of changing LED colors :/

    Hope this works for you guys

    I think after a certain amount of time it stops blinking, mine does the same thing. I wish it didnt stop blinking so i wouldnt always have to wake my phone to see if i have a new notification.
     
  17. Just curious, I was looking for it on Appbrain, and theres two versions, one for 2.x that's in beta. Anyone know if the previous version thats for 1.6 will work? I rather not use the beta and walk into bugs, and prefer to wait until he gets the kinks out

    I'm sorry, but I'm not 100% sure, as I don't use this app...My best advice would be to email the developer and get his insight. Hope this helps bro :p

    anyone know if this or a similar app can control the LED while plugged in? I'd like to be able to have the LED blink even if my phone is charging, so the new message/missed call indicator would override the charging indicator.

    Thanks
