    I have the Motorola Droid. I have looked in the forums for my problem and can't find it anywhere. My issue is : I have handcent sms for my texting since i got my phone and a few days ago i noticed my LED wasnt working. I did a few tests and it doenst work for any of my notifications. I turned my phone on and off, i have uninstalled handcent SMS and still no LED. I have uninstalled any app that i have downloaded recently and still nothing. can any one help me?

    Stranger things have happened. Although led's should last a lot longer than the phone they still are subject to failure.

    I had this problem too. I ignored it for a while, but when I finally went tinkering in handcents settings I remembered that I had at one point checked the box that says "automatically retrieve messages". So I went back and un checked that box... wouldn't u know it works again!
    Im not sure what that setting is for since I believe my messages r pushed to my phone anyways.
    I never tried the tester or anything but I thought maybe u should at least look into it. Who knows maybe we've got the same issue???
    (Oh btw, I have a droid x)
