Default Flashing LED

Please Login to Remove!

Hopefully someone has a solution...other than tossing the thing.

I have a BB Tour that recently started to flash the red LED light. I have all the LED notifications for emails, texts, BBM's and system connection turned off. However, it seems that when I get an email, I open it, read it and close it and the red LED flashes (rapidly)...until I turn it off.

Any ideas?

i wonder if this has to do some of those social apps like Facebook, Twitter because they could have their own profile settings where it will keep flashing.

Check you application center to see if there is an update on any of your applications. I checked all posts about this issue and tried everything people suggested.
Then I realized I have one application that needed to be updated. After I updated the app and rebooted. The red led was gone!
