    I read it does that when you have twitter notifications. Do you have that app? Could be another app using the trackball as a notification indicator.

    I know on my G1 the LED would start blinking for a missed call, even if I cleared the notification...the only way I could get it to stop was to go into the call log app. for some reason, just clearing the notification wasn't enough...30 minutes to a couple hours later, it would start blinking again (although nothing would be showing in the notification area).

    Possibly cleared the message/notification too quick for the phone to realize. try a reboot?

    Anyone know if the trackball is capable of different colors like the G1 is? Also, I wish there was an option to wake the phone by pushing the trackball kinda like how the menu button on the g1 functioned, I hate reaching for the power button.

    Hey loser troll, did I ever say it was so far away? It is just not ergonomically comfortable the way that I hold my phone when I pick it up to check an alert.

    Most people hold the phone in the palm of their hand with their fingers curled around the front, I hold it with my finger tips on the back and my thumb on the front screen, which makes reaching my index to the power button a pain. If the power button was on the right side it would be no problem for me.
