    Default LED Color question

    I have two S3' for me and one for my wife. I've only had them a couple of days and have been setting them up side-by-side.

    For some reason, my wife's LED notification is a solid red when the screen is off (and not on when the screen is on). And I don't see any notifications in the pull-down. I've never seen my phone do anything but flash blue for notifications. And no, it isn't being charged when it's on.

    Is there a guide at all to what the different colors mean (specifically why hers is a solid red)?Worried about it eating up the battery by being constantly on.

    I think another user may have tracked this problem down to Yahoo Mail?

    Mine is doing this with Whatsapp message notifications. Just shows a solid red (non-blinking) led. All my other notifications for texts and emails blink blue. I've tried to mess with all the settings and all I've been successful in doing is changing he color of the Whatsapp led, but still shows as a solid color. I've emailed the developers of Whatsapp, awaiting a reply...

    I believe there is a known issue with samsung implementing the alert led in a different way than most previous phones. This has caused many third party apps that use the led to have issues, Light Flow, among others. More info:

    I also had problems with the led but I like the phone so much I just turned the led off till a fix comes out.

    No problems with LED. Blinks blue when it should.

    My phone just did it too. Seems to be the Facebook notification. Solid red. Clearing the Facebook notification turned it off.

    Can anyone else verify? I didn't think my wife's phone had a notification but maybe it did.

    Yes, it does seem to happen with Facebook motifs. All other apps seem to trigger a blinking blue notification, but Facebook a solid red. Happens on both S3's we have.

    Why does my led stay blue for text messages?

    Solid red means charging when phone screen is locked. It will activate when using a power skin cover. To deactivate find led setting and shutoff led lights up when charging and screen locked.
