    Was wondering if the Epic has some sort of indicator LED. The Moment didn't, but I'm hoping this time around Samsung included it!

    Check out the review, you can see a red indicator light... so far so good at multi-color led It wasn't plugged in either, so its not just a battery indicator light.

    What review shows this? And how does a visible red LED indicate that there will be capability for "multi-colored" led.. we already know it has red & blue but no evidence of any other colors..

    I'm pretty sure that the LED is capable of only red and blue. If you go to the dialer and type: *#0*# it will take you to an LCD TEST menu. Click on LED on the bottom in the middle, and you can test the three main colors of RED, GREEN, and BLUE; as well as the four Sub colors of YELLOW, MAGENTA, CYAN, and WHITE. If you test all of these colors, you will find that only RED, BLUE, and MAGENTA work. Of course MAGENTA is RED and BLUE turned on at the same time. Therefore I conclude that the LED is capable of only red and blue. I hope this helps.

    Man, that sucks. I was hoping for more colors, but thanks for pointing this out.

    Wow this is an excellent tip..

    I think you should post that code as a separate thread.. all kinds of system calibration tests.. a well deserved thanks.. how did you find this *#0*# out?

    Yes, one of them is the magnetic sensor o.O wasn't even aware we had one of those (hardware compass and such I guess?)

    On your suggestion, I am preparing a separate thread on the Samsung Epic hash codes that I have been able to uncover and verify.

    I found this code out through testing. I have been with Sprint for a while and, though I don't post often, I do lurk in forums from time to time. Samsung typically uses very similar hash codes for diagnostics and certain types of programming on their Sprint phones.

    They had similar codes for the Instinct, the Omnia, and others. Back then, breaking news was when you enabled tethering . Look how far we've come!

    Anyone had any luck using blue or magenta for notifications? Handcent SMS (and possibly k9 email, I can't recall offhand) gives the option for custom color, but even using blue it didn't work. I'm guessing it's just a matter the feature not being Epic-comp yet, but if you've had success, please share!

    Instinct flashback: one guy frantically posts that he enabled Korea Mode and screwed up his phone. Others post that they called Sprint for their MSL and got mixed responses...

    Wow, I made a good choice with Samsung! Learning curve certainly is small for hardware usage.
