I just tried NoLED and I thought it sucked. I use Handcent SMS and when I received a text the quick reply box popped up and stayed there without ever turning the screen back off. I could see the NoLED icon floating around the screen behind the quick reply box but it seemed to cause my phone not to sleep Not cool at all.

I tried NoLED, but that was just an icon floating around the screen. FlashNotify flashes the whole screen, and also allows an audible notification every time it flashes. It doesn't work for emails and voice mails, only SMS and missed calls. That's fine though, all I was looking for.

Not worried about it...
Not really worried about notifications myself...
I mean I check the phone frequently enough throughout the day that it doesn't matter if there is an LED notify.
I always found those LED's to be annoying anyway, especially when you have a lot of emails or text a lot.
I think the NOLED is a great concept and maybe if it was a static "better looking" image I would give it a try. I really like the idea of the screen essentially being off but a slightly transparent ghostly clock that showed through.

The Samsung Moment had the same issue. A dude over at SDX developers made an application that lit up the capacitive keys when there was a notification. This might be possible for the Optimus S, however I don't know how effective it would be since the hardware buttons do not light up very bright.

First post, longtime troller. Using Flashnotify, will probably donate, it seems to be working quite well. I wouldn't even notice the buttons lighting up in my office, too much light going on, but a good idea for nighttime, I loved the little button on my Pre lighting up to let me know I had something waiting.

I'v been using "missed reminders" app. its ok.
the thing that really annoys me about it is that the little notification icon does not go away after you view the missed text. So that means you have to see the text and then again hit the notification icon for it to clear and stop flashing your screen.
Also, Flashnotify does not stop flashing once it starts. Meaning once i get a text it starts flashing... then i view the text and leave the phone alone. But it continues flashing like i have a new text.. when i dont, and the one i had is alrady cleared from it. Anyone else notice this?

If you go into FlashNotify settings in the AppDrawer (I think that's what it's called) you can set the notification frequency and how long to do it for. You can also choose to disable the bulb on the notifications bar too.

I started using NoLed and it seems to work fine. When a notification arrives a little icon appears on the screen. One nice feature is each type of notification has its one icon that appears on the screen. Email, SMS, voicemail, missed call, gtalk, etc. all have their own icon and if you have more than one type of notification multiple icons will appear on the screen.
I was really missing a led light but this app completely solved the problem.
