Default Red light becomes green even with new messages

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

I received some emails this morning (about 5 total, at once, split into two accounts)...and I didn't get a chance to check them immediately. When I did finally get to the phone, the light was blinking green. I can't say if it ever went red (it usually does) because I only got to the phone about 45-60 minutes later. Is there a period of time that the red light "gives up" and then just goes back to green? I searched this board for this type of issue and couldn't find anything like it. This is a very new TMo 8700g, and the email came in through 2 different Gmail accounts. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Really? I must be a true crackberry addict then becuase my messages never survive that long on my device for me to notice the light stops blinking

Perfect Storm is correct, your red LED new message indicator will return to green or none after about 15 mins.
