Notification LED Probs!
so yesterday i charged my epic and i saw the led light was a steady blue. also when receiving texts or missed calls the same led would blink red. now the led dont work anymore at all. i soft resetted and i didnt install much apps. i have launcher pro plus but the lights had been working with that installed.
anyone else having this problem? everything else is fine wit my phone. i am debatin whether this is a broken phone now. anyone have remedies?

also, im wondering that the culprit maybe the sprint Micro-USB vehicle power charger PLUS which allows you to connect a second usb device to charge...?? anyone using this with your epic? maybe it blows out my led? even though sprint sells it as compatible with the epic?

i just find it odd that its happened to 3 handsets in a row straight from the box. works for a minute then doesnt work again. handcent didnt help either. even when you power up the phone it should show the red led but it doesnt. seems like a hardware failure.

yeh checked all settings.. tested with handcent. reset hard and soft. worked out the box but then from the store i went into the car to check on it and it didnt work. i feel its the car charger which would be really bad bc they say its compatible for the epic. im goin to get a replacement and just dont use the car charger and see if that can be ruled out as the culprit. although, i agree, it seems unlikely that a charger can blow out an led/fuse in a phone.

The update solved my notification problems (the duration, but NOT the colors and variety!!! Hope that fix is coming soon)...
Anyway, what WAS solved like I said before was the duration... I now get repeating LED notifications for both texts and emails, and they're different somehow, but I haven't paid attention close enough to be able to distinguish between the two... they definitely last though... I can leave a notification "unread" for hours and will continue to be informed that I have one waiting for me by my Epic's LED light...
So I guess it's baby steps Samsung? Ah well, it's better than no step at all..."It’s only after we have lost everything that we are free to do anything…"
