    Default LED Notifications

    Weird, but if I receive a call or text, I DON'T get an LED notification. And yes my LED is set to on...

    Will it only come on after X minutes or so?

    How do you set it up for LED notification for an incoming call? I remember that BeBuzz app on my BB9810. Is there a similar app for Android?

    There may be others but I've read Light Flow is good - though perhaps has a USA Galaxy S3 bug at the moment...

    I'm a little confused.

    I was under the impression that on the Samsung Galaxy S3, the LED light (built in) was set to default notifications for Calls, Emails, Messages, etc., no?

    I didn't think an app of any sort was needed. Even in settings it leads me to believe that the device should simply notify one of new items (Emails, Calls, Messages, etc.).

    The LED alerts to missed calls and email but does not appear to have the options similar to RIM.

    The LED also has low battery options and charging notifications. There are so many apps but I am too new to Android to know which one is safe and most effective to use.

    Mine works fine. I just don't like that it doesn't flash instead of staying lit

    Being used to RIM LED notifications, flashing LED grabs your attention more, at least for me it did. Had a disco LED for incoming calls.

    Just to confirm, if your screen is OFF, and you receive a text message, email or a call, your LED light will illuminate?
    And you don't have any LED type apps installed?

    Correct. You must have it turn on to have it work. Just make sure missed event is selected under the LED indicator setting under settings. The lighflow app, once fixed for our model will allow customizing LED colors for different events etc.

    Can't wait for lightflow. I miss little things like the LED notifications from my RIM device. Can you customize alerts for callers, emails and sms.

    Let's be honest - at least for me, RIM's LED notifications were ok...but BerryBuzz was worth every frickin' penny. Best BB app ever.

    I do like the size of the LED on this compared to the HOX. The HOX was visible but this one you can't miss!

    Yes it will flash. Mine flashes with a blue LED when I miss a text, email or call. Make sure the delete any LED apps until they get them working with our model.

    Thanks everyone. I rebooted my device and all seems to working correctly now.

    Curious, when a new notification is received, and the blue light starts flashing, will it flash till I check the notification, or just for 10-15 minutes or so?

    Man I can't for the life of me figure this thing out. First of all, I love having it! To look across the room and tell if you have any notifications is the best.
    BUT, sometimes it flashes. Sometimes it's solid. And the colors don't seem consistent. Seems like it will be blue for email one time but a different color for email from the same account/person the next.
    I've installed no third party yet but I have no clue how it's supposed to work as there really aren't many settings for it.

    The OP and jeffreii as well as myself, we are accustomed to the RIM LED notification customization. RIM had the luxury of not having a lot of apps to choose from to accomplish this customization. Being new to Android and it being open-sourced in a Wild West environment, it is hard to know which one is great and safe to use on your device.

    Really odd. Did you try the off\on and restart option?
