    Finally jumped into the water and dumped my Tour for a shiney new EVO yesterday!

    So far so good...but in my effort to get my new phone to do the things I *liked* about my blackberry, I'm trying to get "Blink" like notifications.

    My question:

    Is there an app, or setting that will make the LED blink one color when a new email is received, and a different color when a new text or MMS message is received?

    It looks like there is just orange or green color options, which pales to blackberry's spectacular multi-color LED, but two will get the job done.

    Your advice is greatly appreciated!

    **Edit/Update**
    Wimax Notifier is functioning on my stock froyo EVO, and offers 3 color notifications(Red,Green,& Orange) from the notification lights located on the upper *right* of the grill. Perfect for getting a visible notification of new text on the right, and new email on the left. Here's the link provided by tryandls for convenience:

    So what happens when you have multiple different notifications? Alternate between blinking green AND orange?

    I just downloaded it and it's a no go.. I tried every color and it stays on green and no other option works....I never thought of wanting it to change colors but now that it was brought up i want it I would like to have the different blinks that would be cool.

    This would be nice. Coming from my Blackberry, I had the app Berry Buzz and i could customize the LED a different color for every type of notification. I do miss that.

    Wait...what!?!? There's an LED on the right side of the earpiece? Doesn't WiMax = 4G? I'm in 4G coverage and have never seen the right-side LED on.

    Wow, never knew there was another led, and so far the app works great.. Can't wait for it to support email and voicemail.

    Yeah I found it about three weeks ago. Being a former blackberry addict that was one of the things I was missing.

    I was told that the 4G shows up on the top right hand side of the screen - at least that's what mine is doing when I'm in 4G ..

    Must be something here in Paradise preventing it from working. It passed the "test," but when tried with a real live email, no flashing.
