    Default Blue LED light blinks while the screen is off

    I'm new to this phone and I'm hoping someone can tell me what this is. The blue LED light blinks when the screen is off. The manual says the phone is "recording voice." What does that mean? How do I turn it off? I assume it's another drain on the battery...

    Thanks!!

    Here 'ya go. The light blinks much faster (every second or so) when Voice Recording, it blinks every 5-10 seconds when you have a notification or message.

    Thanks! I swear I read that screen on my phone several times & missed the word "blue" with regard to notifications. Maybe I'm "color blind!!"

    And the online manual says it will blink orange for notifications:

    "Charging: When enabled, the LED glows red during charging, and green when the
    battery is fully charged.
     Low battery: When enabled, the LED blinks red to indicate low battery charge.
    Notifications: When enabled, the LED blinks orange to show that you have missed
    calls, new messages, or application events.
     Voice recording: When enabled, the LED glows blue when recording with the
    screen turned off.


    WTF?

    Send yourself a text, or have someone else do it. Then see what color the light flashes.

    Mine was preordered, so it's one of the first ones, maybe there's a running change already? Can I assume you're in the USA? The manual on AT&T' and Samsung's USA websites do not list a specific color:




    LED indicator
    This option allows you to turn on your LED lights for charging,
    missed events, and incoming notifications. The light will turn
    on by default unless you turn them off.
    1. From the Home screen, tap ➔ Settings ➔
    My device ➔ LED indicator.
    2. Tap the following LED indicator options to turn them on
    or off:
    Charging: LED lights up when the device is connected to the
    charger.
    Low battery: LED lights up when the battery level is low.
    Notifications: LED lights up when you have missed calls,
    messages, or application events.
    Voice recording: LED lights up when you are recording voice.
    The LED only lights up when the screen is off.

    Yep, the blue light notifies of missed calls, messages, etc. One would think Samsung would have more to do than change the LED colors for notifications! Thanks for your help. (And yes, I'm in the US-Texas)

    Your phone may be bugged and someone may be listening to you without your knowledge... Why else would your recorder be working without your consent?

    I don't know if you ever found what you were looking for but i had a blue light notification that was driving me crazy. Couldn't figure out what it was, until... it was an old calendar notification for an appointment. Go figure. Blue light gone.
