Default Fast blinking red light when on phone

Please Login to Remove!

I think this just started in the last day or so. When I use the phone, the red notification LED blinks fast with a red light. Is this typical? It has always blinked red when I have a message of any sort waiting or I missed an incoming call. I don't think it always blinked red while on the phone.

Can anyone else confirm this is also the case with them and always has been?

Are you on a BES? I seem to remember an IT Policy that mentioned something about the LED light being on when the phone or speakerphone was in use....

Default I believe so.

Forgive my ignorance, but I believe you are asking if I am on an enterprise server, and I am pretty sure I am, since mine is a work phone. I posed this question to our IT group, so I'll see if they reply.

Default Got the message below from IT:

"I noticed a feature of our latest version of BlackBerry software is for the indicator light to flash red rapidly any time the microphone is activated on the phone.

This seems to be a new feature recently added."

Most likely to indicate an open mic while in a private meeting.

The light is on whether I mute the phone or not.
