I've noticed in the last few days that the alert settings on my phone $ay have changed. I set it to Quiet most of the time but I've noticed in the last few days that it's not doing this as often. For example, I got in tonight and I had a Facebook alert, a text and an email but my red light wasn't flashing. Where can I change these settings?

Cheers,

Andy

The red light will only flash for ~15 minutes after a message is received. After that it will stop flashing to help conserve battery life.

Ahhhh the obvious answer is always the best! Thanks, if it didn't do that I'm sure I would be starting a thread about why my battery runs out all the time

Haha. There is a 3rd party application that will cause the light to flash until the message is read. I believe it's called BerryAlerts.
