    I really love the LED light notification, it allows me to give my phone a quick glance and see if I get a new e-mail, text message, twidroid post, missed call, etc...What I noticed is that if I get a new e-mail (blinks green), then get a twidroid update notification (blinks blue) it never blinks green again. It's not a really big deal but if I get a missed call (blinks red) then get a twidroid update right after...I'm not really going to know I got a missed call until I turn on the device. I was wondering if there was a way to make the LED notification light alternate blinking, like blink red then blink blue. That way I know I got a missed call and can respond to it right away rather than ignoring it because I think it's just a twidroid update. Anyone know of a way to do this?

    Also, I'm still on my quest to find a protective pouch for my droid (my old iPod video case is starting to fall apart, and I want something a little more protective). I've seen the Sena Elega (I like it but hate the little belt clip, I put my phone in my pocket), I like the Sena Kutu (but it looks kinda flimsy) also none of these come for the droid but heard the iPhone version still fits it nicely. Anyone know of a combination of the two, that maybe also allows me to see the LED light? Appreciate any help!

    what app are you using to change the LED color? Im looking for an app that allows you to just change colors.

    It's called "missed call" in the market right now the selection is a bit limited but you can change the color of the LED light notification and it's freeeeee... really love maybe I could contact the developer and see if it would be possible to code into the app somehow.

    Missed Call app lets you change LED colors, rings ect for various actions/notifications. It's supposed to let you change the LED duration(s) but that doesn't work for the Droid yet. But it's still functional.

    The missed call app allows you to change the LED color for calls/texts.

    Is the LED light supposed to blink red after a missed call by default or do you have a separate application? I get a notification in the bar, but there is no light.

    No, it doesnt blink red...you have to either get handcent or missed call to change colors. I didnt really like handcent because I like my msg's the way they are set up currently.


    ...Thanks I'll check out missed call.

    It's still a beta (actually not even an 'officially release' beta) so stop your complaining, lol:). But I do agree, there are several times/instances where the swype interface is less than functional. But that should change once Swpye looks to actually support the Android platform.

    There is an alternative called ShapeWriter (essentially the same thing) that is VERY popular on the iPhone store but has mixed reviews on the Droid (but again, it's an early version on the Droid).

    Strange..been using Swype for several days now...I do my best to generate lengthy SMS/MMs/emails so I can put the program through it's paces. I had one day where my messages didn't go through the way I had entered and proofed them. That was a few days ago. I haven't experienced ANY issues since then. I love Swype and have every intention of purchasing it as soon as it's commercially available...but I'm wondering what type of problems you guys are experiencing. On my end, I think it was glitch somewhere in the VzN transmission/reception system and not necessarily the program because I also experienced the problem with the DROID SMS/MMS/email text transmissions. Thats just my gut talking...I actually don't know if such a thing is possible or not...:icon_ devil:
