I think I put this in the wrong forum by mistake...reposting here...
"I just got a 7290 with Cingular a few days ago and am new to having a Blackberry. I plugged mine in and let it charge up for about 18 hours before using it (just the way my schedule worked out) and the red light still was flashing. I checked in the options -> status page and it said the battery was 100%...is this normal or does something need to be changed? I've read other posts on here saying it should change over to green once it is done...thanks."
The red LED blinking usually is a profile setting, not something related to the battery or the charging status. The LED usually blinks when you first turn on the device, but other than that, it only is activated when your profile requests it... such as for new mail notification, or a calendar reminder.
What OS are you running? The HK 4.0 version?
I am charging a brand new one (straight out of the box from Cingular) and my 7290 running 4.0 from HK, and neither are blinking...
Aren't anomalies wonderful!!
i should'a been more specific... I'm running 6280's, 7280's, 7780's ... with ATT 4.0 and so far they all seem to blink when charging... now i'm starting to wonder why... I'll have to take a look at that later.
