Question blinking lights?

Please Login to Remove!

My Storm is blinking its LED in a way I haven't seen before. It does 2 quick flashes, red, then green. Then a pause, then 2 quick flashes, green, then green. Then a pause, then it repeats.

My battery is down to 10%, but it's hooked to the charger. Any clue what the blinking lights mean?

green is low battery and red is new message indicator. even if it's charging, it will blink green until sufficiently charged.

That doesn't seem to explain it.

I disconnected from the charger and did a battery pull. Now it's hooked back to the charger and shows that it's charging (only at 20%, so far), but no LEDs blinking at all.

Then I just received a message and the red LED started blinking like it always does. I read the message and now back to no blinking at all, even though it is still charging.

Wirelessly posted

Green will blink when it gets low, then when charging, will stop when it reaches 15-20%. If it's at that already when you plug in, it won't start flashing green.
