Came across Missed Message flasher. Tested it and it works great on my Optimus. On my phone anything lower than 250ms for flash duration allows buttons to flash and screen doesn't come on.

Question about 'Flash Notify' on Optimus S
Someone was kind enough to recommend this app for notifications due to the lack of LED on the Optimus...I was just wondering if anyone else has used it and if so, what kind of hit it takes on the battery.

I love it! It does flash very quickly and sometimes I don't notice it but I use Facebook Pop as a notification. It is a very descreet sound that only I usually even notice. When I get a text/mms/missed call I have it go off every 30 seconds for 15 minutes after it comes in. It's a great little app and seems to have very little effect on my battery

Just a sugestion, you really should stop making new threads for every question you have about something, when there are threads already posted about the topic of which your threads seem to always be related to.
For instance KSmithInNY already linked you to this thread:
Which would be a good place to ask this question in as it is related to your subject.
Otherwise they will keep locking your threads, the forum search feature is your friend, forum clutter is not. =)
I see the thread I posted in has been moved, thank you Beezy, Ksmith, or whomever moved it to the correct location.

Can the Optimus S's lighted buttons be turned on without also turning on the screen?
Hello; here's a question:
Does anyone know if it would be possible to write a program that would flash the Optimus S's lighted buttons as a notification without also flashing the screen? Or, in other words, can the lighting of the screen and the buttons on the Optimus S be separately controlled?
I know that by running "Missed Message Flasher," one can sort of manage this, by setting the screen and buttons to flash so briefly that the screen doesn't have time to turn on.
But I wonder if there is a way that a developer with enough knowledge could create a program that could really have the lighted buttons turn on and off, without making the screen turn on, however long the buttons are set to flash?
It would be nice to have a dedicated app to control the flashing buttons independently from the screen backlight, but I don't know if the hardware on the Optimus allows this, even in theory (For all I know, it's the very same wire that powers both the button lights and the LCD backlight, which would be unfortunate).

Notification of calls and messages??? How?
I'm not quite sure what to call this, so was stymied in my searches. On the Optimus, as far as I can tell you have no idea if a call or message has come in while you weren't looking or listening. My "dumb phone" spoilt me....
is there a way? I've had to resort to trying to remember to pick it up, get the screen on, and look to see if any notice is sitting there.
is there an app that will beep or something periodically to let you know that yo Momma called???

for the record I tried FlashNotify. nice settings nice interface but it was buggy on my Froyo 'T' model. It worked in flash mode, but when I turned the audible alert on, it killed the flash permanently. could never get it to work after that. Also seems to get frozen by other apps but that's just an observation... not sure what was going on under the hood. Also it will not shutoff until everything is cleared up, and then it has a delay before it gets the message.

I've yet to find one of the flasher's or audios that works consistently.
it seems that anything else loaded on the system that deals with the powersave screenoff function interferes with all others.
if anyone knows of a notification 'flasher' that is robust enough to ignore other intrusions, please post.
the handcent popup does work, but its buggy in how it displays... in fact as best I can tell, the default messaging program gets invoked by the handcent popup. in other words, when one opens/accesses the handcent "popup" that pops up, its not the handcent conversation window.
speaking of handcent - does anyone have a good forum for that one? it has one major issue that has me looking for a better alternative
