Default Flashing message LED turning off??

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Quick one for you. My flashing red message LED appears to be unreliable?? One of two things is happening, either:

1) The LED does not always flash red when a message is received.
2) The LED flashes red for as time but then switches off.

What I am seeing is that when I come down in the morning my phone is not showing a flashing red LED but I have received new messages. However, during the day, when I receive a message it always displays the flashing red LED. I do not believe that the LED performs differently at night so can only assume it turns off after a set period.

Can anyone enlighten me and explain this??

Thanks,

Hello,

This is normal. The LED will alert for a specific amount of time and will cease to conserve battery. I think it continues flashing for like 8 minutes (just a guess). If this is a must have for you then look into a 3rd party app call BBAlerts.
