    Yea, it was part of my feedback on the soak. I flashed back to .748 just to check (it worked again) to see if it was the LED not working. I'm back on .173 as the new updates outweigh the LED issue for now. It's kind of strange because it works for all of the notifications. Maybe they'll fix it on next OTA.

    Yup, just noticed it myself. Didn't realize there was a thread on it and asked the same question. Wonder if we'll get it back. I miss it.

    I think nothing of.it. I have only noticed once were it was on but besides that I think nothing of it. It's just a light to me. If I want to know if it is charging I just unlock the screen and check the battery icon.

    Prior to the most recent OTA with the phone powered OFF while charging, you would see an LED indicating the battery's level of charge. Amber = charging, green = fully charged. There is no LED indication post OTA.

    Ahhh! That's what was meant by the charging LED. I almost never power off to charge, so I didn't experience it nor miss it.

    Yeah, sorry about the confusion bit I don't power off either as it is my alarm. But you are right prior to this update it was green when full and red when charging correct?

    Only thing I see now is pushing the power button will bring up a cool battery meter.

    Battery Charging Issue-Droid RAZR

    I went to unplug after about an hour+ and saw no charging took place. The battery charge (status) green "battery shape bar" on left had not changed; also checked batt levels info - unplugged and plugged into another outlet ---RAZR went back to normal charging behavior. I've since plugged back into the orignal outlet (power strip cord supporting two lamps and phone charger) and charging still won't work there. Note: it was working there for about two weeks (annoying and suspect). The point is you should check the charge status and troubleshoot.

    Charged Vs. Needs Charge-DROID RAZR

    dancedroid

    That is correct - red battery shape status bar (more like bright orange) when in need of charge and green when charging and charged.
