Potential problem with 8830?
 
I've had my Blackberry 8830 for about 3 weeks now, and I have never seen this before. On Sunday morning, I woke up to my blackberry having a green light that only shuts off when the screen shuts off, or it is powered down. Whenever I am using the phone, the green light is on. Usually, no light is on unless I have an incoming call or a text message, and then it will flash red. Now it flashes green if the screen is off, and flashes from green to yellow if I'm using my blackberry at the time. I've researched it, and found that it the green light means don't charge the phone, so I haven't, and now I'm to 25% battery, and the green light is still there.

I was wondering if any of you have had this same problem, or if anyone knows how to resolve it?

Thank you,
-DB

Go to options, Screen/Keyboard, LED Coverage Indicator and see what is says.

Edit: It was already off, so I turned it on, and back off and it shut off. Thank you.

Yellow/Amber means it is UNDER 15% charge.
Green flashing means you are getting a signal from your carrier, AND above 15% charge.
If it is flashing yellow, let it charge a good 4+ hours.
Red flashing repeatedly means you have a new message or alert.

Whoever told you green means don't charge the BB is goofy. :?
