    How? How do you do it?
    People have told me to change my messaging ap, and then change the color of the LED light in the new ap's settings and notification options. While turning off all the default sms notifications. Etc, etc...

    Well, I've done all of that. I've used handcent and chompsms. And my LED light never changed color. But I really want my LED light to be blue, so I'm not giving up!

    So, does anyone have any suggestions? Is there an ap out there that only changes the LED light color? If not, what else can I try?

    Did you go into the settings for Handcent to change the LED color? If you go into settings and look at the notifications, there's an options to change the color of the LED. Mine blinks purple.

    If you mean "Missed Reminder", I just found and installed it. Went through and changed all the LED preferences to blue and it's still not changing it. I'm going to reboot my phone and see if that does anything.

    If it doesn't change, should I uninstall Chompsms and Missed Reminder and reinstall them? Or would that be pointless?

    Tigger- I searched for "Missed Call" and that was the closest I found.

    New2u- I saw those too, that's how I found out about Chomp and Handset. But those threads were short. I assume it was someone asking, someone answering and case closed. I guess I'm just lucky and have the most trouble changing the LED.

    If you want to only change it for SMS, SMS Popup has settings for it. You can even set a different vibrate pattern (Custom ones too) and LED colors (can be custom as well). Really good, because I know who texted me based on the color of the LED.

    You guys all realize this is the Eris forum right? As far as I can see there is no way to change the color on the Eris. Also, Missed Call doesnt work on the Eris.

    I know you do, but I think the others have Moto Droids and they are able to change the color. I dont think you can do it on the Eris. That was one of the first things I tried to find when I got mine.

    Those are my exact thoughts! I think people are assuming the Droid and the Eris are exactly the same, which they really aren't.
