    The LED does not shine on the keyboard, plus the keys on the keyboard light up anyways.

    It is there to illuminate for an indication of a pre-determined condition.

    Is there a way to manually turn on this micro usb light? Maybe an app or something? I have come up empty handed so far. The screen and LED light don't light up the side of the phone good enough when I'm trying to plug in the charger in the dark.

    Actually, it turns on while you are charging your phone, and turns off when it's full battery.

    Haha I knew someone would say something like that. I use my phone as an alarm clock so I have to charge it during the night next to my bed. When my wife is already in bed before me I prefer not to turn on the room light just to plug in my phone. If there's no app that can manually switch that little side light on & off like Droidlight & others do with the camera's LED light, I might have to start keeping a flashlight next my bed! But since "Droid does", I figured I'd ask.

    there was a thread about this before and some people suggested using a black sharpie marker to darken the light. I wouldnt do it... i just turn my phone at an angle so i cant see the light

    Yes I realize some people don't want that light to shine but I DO want it to shine BEFORE I plug in the charge cable. I want to use the light to be able to see clearly where to plug it in when it's dark. Anyone?

    Another option is to put a piece of light reflective sticky tape on the "top" of the micro-USB cable or better yet, get the multi-media cradle as was suggested. :)

    i had to come back to this ridiculousness...i hope this doesnt backfire, but since you have a smartphone im assuming you're ok in this sense.

    do you have fingers?

    do your fingers have feeling in them?

    can you not run your finger down the grand canyon-like distance from the bottom of the phone to the top of the phone and FEEL for the usb opening?

    theres only one side of the 4 that the usb is on, and all you have to do is hold your phone like you hold it normally, run your finger up the left side until you feel the little hole and like magic, you know where the usb plugs in!!! zomgwtf!!1!!1

    serously...cavemen figured this kinda stuff out and im not talking about geico. its not rocket science people.
