Default Annoying green light

Please Login to Remove!

I am a pda neophite, and this may be elementary to most of you. I have a Pearl and just yesterday got the email set up. I didn't do this the first 9 months I had the Pearl because I didn't need it on the phone. Anyway, I set it up. It works. But now the little green light in the top right corner flashes constantly, regardless of whether there are messages in the in box, or missed calls or anything. I can't figure out how to "silence" this light. Can someone help me? Thanks for listening.

The green LED indicates you have a signal.

Options > Screen/keyboard > LED Coverage Indicator = OFF.

It can also appear as a greenish color light if you need to charge your battery.

Welcome to the BBForums.
Thanks, J. I thought I had turned on/off every feature of my bb8310. Never tried this one. Go figure. Although, the flashing green light (blue light when blue tooth is on) gives me a certain sense of security. I'll have to see if I can survive green light withdrawal.

Turning off that light was one of the first things I was determined to figure out how to do when I got my new BB. I did not like it at all and I too thought that it would be an unnecessary drain on the battery.
