| | That Red blinking light, doesn't always blink when it should?
Please Login to Remove!
I have 1 mail account on my BB. For that account, in my NORMAL profile (which is always the one enabled) I have LED Blinking set for new Email messages both in and out of holster.
So I would expect that whenever the mailbox icon indicates "new" messages, that the LED would blink.
This is true, but not always.
One case is when I turn the unit on, after new messages download, the red light sometimes isn't blinking.
After it's on for a while, sometimes I get new messages and find out only when I look.
It seems that putting the unit in STANDBY might disable setting the red led? I but again, not always.
The only things I do to the BBerry to reduce power are
1) standby (pressing mute key)
2) put in holster with magnet.
Is the algorithm for the blinking light somehow more complicated, or is there a setting I'm missing?
Note - I recently RMA'ed my curve for another reason, and saw this behavior on both units.
