Post LED light

Please Login to Remove!

HI, I saw some thread earlier regarding the LED notification light, but as a newbie I have to ask it is driving me crazy! When a new message comes in it blinks red but only for 15-17 minutes (yes I have timed it ) then it goes back to green. Is this normal? I would think it should stay red until you check the message. Any ideas?

Yes, the light is red for a new message and yes it does only stay on for 15 min or so and then turns green again - there is no way to change the length of time it does this for although you can turn off the red light notification using Profiles settings.

The default is for the light to flash green if your BB is connected to a network (you can switch this off under Options > Screen / Keyboard).

The light goes orange when you're low battery and blue with bluetooth.

I turned off the green light since I'm colorblind. That way, if it's flashing, I know I have a message. Not flashing, I need to check if I haven't in the last 15 min or so.

Just an FYI.
