I took out the battery for a few and it went away, but does anyone have any idea what the deal might have been?

You sure it was turned off? Usually a yellow LED means low battery... did you have low battery? Many just a glitch, and hopefully it doesn't happen again... and that hard reset fixed it.

I'm pretty sure the yellow led was indicating your battery level was really low

I have the same issue. Just happened yesterday. Turned off the phone to charge it overnight. As soon as I plugged in the charger, the LED was flashing green/yellow.

Usually when I charge it, the LED lights solid RED. This flashing LED is not normal.

When it's off and charging the led should flash green/yellow until it's charged, then solid green. There's no red going on in the charging deal. Red's for messages, yellow's for low battery, blue's for <dromroll.................>
Bluetooth!
