    Dont look like it from what I can tell. Might be an app out there though that will let you change the colors similar to the one for BlackBerrys.

    Good luck

    There is an app for that. :)

    Missed Call

    It looks like it will let you customize the light for different events.

    I am having the same problem and the missed call app is not for email notifications. i have the dock sitting on my night stand and when i get an email while I am sleeping, the green light blinking lights the room as it blinks on and off. this wakes me up so I need to turn it off. Any ideas?

    Quick fix. Just put a piece of black electrical tape over the light at night when you're about to go to sleep. I'm glad I'm a heavy sleeper. They'd have to turn on stadium lights to wake me up :).

    I used a small bit of black electrical tape ... no more flashing green in the night. It's a solution I also used for my new lenovo laptop which arrived with four (count 'em) flashing lights, which are annoying as heck while I'm working. Bits of black tape.. no longer a problem. Who needs all those signals? It reminds me of those movies in the 60's showing what movie makers thought computers looked like.

    This. It lets you customize the light for calls, texts, and emails. Can even disable it if you like, which sounds like what you're looking for. You need to disable the stock notifications for Missed Call to work.

    How do you tun on the LED for notifications?

    I downloaded an app to change the color when I had a missed call. Now when I get an email the led doesn't blink. I uninstalled the app but it still doesn't work. Email notification is selected. Any clue what happened?

    TIA

    When my phone is in the dock, and I have two of them, the green light does not flash. I am running Froyo 2.2 though so if you're running stock that could be why. I thought it use to blink in the dock before.

    Not putting a knock on you aton but you must be pretty light sensitive if that little green blinking light is bugging you. I use to leave it on the bright setting when I slept.

    Also with Froyo 2.2 the screen goes dark when sleeping except for the clock and the clock moves to prevent screen burn in.

    Flashing Green Light on the Droidx

    The fastest way to get answers to questions like this is to call Tech Support. Try 800-922-0204.

    Ha. I'd give good odds that in most cases, getting answers on Droidforums is faster than tech support. dancedroid

    Just last night I was on the phone with Tech Support for over an hour. I had no wait time, which I will admit is unusually lucky. The Tech was very patient with me, answering a very long list of questions I had about the Droid. I first went through my phone extensively, writing down questions as they came up. When I called, I told the Tech that I have many questions. We went through the questions which brought up even more questions from time to time. If he did not know an answer, he put me on hold and called another tech. I was never on hold more than 30 seconds. I am now very knowledgeable about the Droid. Today I called Tech support to find out the differences between the Droid and the IPhone. I now have that information also.

    I stand with my own experience with Verizon Techs, if you need an immediate answer, call Verizon Tech support. If you want help with Apps for the Droid, get on these forums for the experience of all the users. :) dancedroid

    As for the Flashing Green Light, it is for "notifications." If you have Text notifications, email notifications, voicemail notifications, missed call etc, Checked in their specific checkboxes, the green light will flash with any new message. If you put your finger on the bar just below it and lightly drag it downward, it will list the new notifications for you. Once you view that, the GREEN LIGHT will stop flashing until the next time you get a notification. If you do not want the GREEN LIGHT to flash, you need to go to each notification and UNcheck the box. For example, tap MESSAGING. Press the button on the bottom left to bring up it's menu. From there, tap MESSAGING SETTINGS. Choose say, Text Messaging. Scroll to NOTIFICATIONS and uncheck the box. You will no longer get the GREEN LIGHT for New Text Messages. Do this for each type of messaging you have turned on and your GREEN LIGHT will stop flashing altogether. If you have difficulty, call Verizon Tech support. :) dancedroid

    How do you guys wake up from something such as the LED light? I barely even notice mine when it blinks green and I have a baby sleeping about 4 feet from me and I only wake up if he's been screaming for atleast a minute. I'm so glad I'm not a light sleeper like some of you :)

    No kidding... I think somebody could walk in my bedroom, rip my Droid off my dock, and then throw it at my face and I still wouldn't wake up. Oh well.

    Your experience is your own, but I'd put the collective knowledge base represtented on this forum up against random VZW tech support any day. Especially for simple functionality questions like the one described in this thread.
