    Did you try restarting your phone? Sometimes stuff like that happens. If that doesn't work, see if the red light comes on when you plug it in to charge it. If it does, then the light works, then open messaging and check the settings of the app to see if notifications is still turned on.

    and you confirm that you've done a phone reboot...after that you could try a factory reset

    I have the same problem and I really miss the light. I have tried restarting the phone by taking out the battery. How do I do a factory reset?

    Pull up the menu/press settings/scroll down to security/press factory reset. Tried it and it didn't work for me. Let me know what happens

    I tried all that. reset the phone back to factory. My phone is not rooted. Could this be a bug with gingerbread.fc09 recent update? My phone is 2 days old(replacement from assurion claim).

    Another question: should there be a notification light checkbox in the settings? I could have swore I've seen it before upgrading to FC09. Now only ringtones can be customized in the Notification settings

    I went to the Sprint store and they said the light is a known malfunction with the FC09 update and Samsung is working on a fix or software update (yea right)....but then i called another Sprint store and they said it was a hardware problem that could not be fixed with a software update. Im confused

    I confirmed with Sprint today it is in fact an issue with FC09. It took a week to convince these idiots it is not a hardware issue. After numerous trips to the service store and them sending me 2 devices (one was brand new and one was refi), I finally took the time to run tests back from EI22, EL30 and finally FC09. Both, EI22 and EL30 worked on both devices. Once the FC09 upgrade was applied, notification light quit working. Thank G.d, there was a decent rep on the call center 2nd level support, who took the time and contacted engineering department to confirm the issue with the software.

    I am debating rooting this sucker and poke around the code. But I think I will wait a week or two. Hope there is enough screaming that Samsung/Google can respond.

    Try the NoLED app in the old Android Market (Google Play). I've given up on my LED since the messed up 2.3.6 update. I think FC09 has messed more than the LED. I've turned off the optimizer but my phone is still not the same. There's a lively discussion on the Sprint Epic 4G forum about FC09.

    Samsung/Google better respond. Cant just disable a feature on the phone by accident and just say "oh well, live with it customers" but then again it wouldn't surprise me that kind of thinking from Samsung...

    The NoLED app is pretty decent. Thank you. Definitely a great alternative. Can you point me to a FC09 discussion? For some reason I am unable to find the thread. Thanks in advance.

    Glad NoLED is working for you. Here's the link to the Sprint Forum:
    Sprint Community: 3/26 - Samsung Epic 4G Software Update - FC09

    Zeinzu:
    I'm just trying to figure out what bugs remain in CM9 Beta 2 before I make the leap. There are a lot of threads to dig through on the XDA website. As much as I hate the idea of going to Facebook or Google+ which forums/threads would you recommend to get the latest bug reports?

    Wanted to add that rooting gingerbread.fc09 WILL fix your notification light. I used these instructions to root my phone. Pretty easy actually:

    Still the NoLed app does more than just a flashing red light. So, on a positive note, meeting the problem, I ended up with much better solution.

    i don't want to root. i want the phone to work the way it should. The notification light is a huge feature and I'm pissed that they took it away and aren't doing anything about it.

    Default Auto forward to email notification

    Is there any way to turn off the persistent notifications that tell me I can auto forward my voice mails to email? If I wanted to use this feature, I would have set it up after the 1st notification, or the 25th or the 57th. I want to be notified when I get a text or email. I don't want to be harassed relentlessly about a feature I've obviously chosen not to use.
