    Default Fix for Notification Lights not working on Verizon HTC One (M8)

    Just like many, I was getting irritated that my new HTC One (M8) had one irritating issue...the notification light was only working (and by working I mean staying lit) when I was charging mt device. After 2 factory restarts I made the call to HTC...not to my suprise they were aware of the concern and were working with Verizon to come up with a solution/ patch. While this was in development the representative provided me the instructions below to disable the Verizon Messenger app on the device. After a restart, the device is working perfectly.

    Settings> App Manager> Slide over to "All"> Scroll down to "Verizon Messages"> Disable.
    Restart device.

    Let me know if this fixes it for you.

    I am shocked a customer service rep knew that process. Although, since the problem is connected to the Verizon Messages app, that is a significant bug.

    I agree. I switch phones so much I was looking for a "central" type of messaging app. I use VZW Messaging on my iPad and it works fine, so thought about using it on my M8. I don't want to if they are going to have issue. I guess there is Google Hangouts, but there aren't many features, and I don't know how reliable it is.

    I've been using Hangouts exclusively for a couple of months and it's worked great for me. Many improvements and added functionality along the way and there's talk about more good things to come. I like it.

    I think it is really only affecting those that choose hangouts as their default SMS app

    It would be at the bottom of the list in the "All" category...be sure you are look at "All" in the app manager.

    You mean problems with notification LED? If so, no problems here. Unlocked M8 using Hangouts as default for messaging, LED notification works perfectly.
