    Just curious I have my phone less than 2 weeks...at first the pulse light would flash when I got a txt or email..now for some reason it stopped flashing....my question is could something else could have caused this to happen??, or is it all of a sudden a hardware problem.........FYI the pulse notification box is checked

    thanks

    Hmmm that should've fixed it. Check the settings of the apps that need a light.

    Another app that does a better job at pulse notifications is Light Flow, I suggest you give that a shot.

    Light Flow didn't work for me until I rooted (I was only unrooted for about an hour). I have the paid version.

    I've been using Light Flow since I can remember and I never had any issues with it. I haven't had any of my info compromised since installing it or any other app that collects data, for that matter. Many of the apps you use everyday collect more data than you think.

    That is a standard warning message in Android. I am not saying Light Flow is clean, as I have never used it. But it is a popular app, and I have never heard anything bad about it in the stolen files. The app has been around for quite some time, probably around 2 years (maybe more), I would think it would have been pulled off the market if they were doing something malicious by now.

    ^^ Light Flow - FAQs <-- about the permissions it requires and why, and the warning you see.

    Of course, you use your best judgement, if something is telling you to not trust the company/app don't trust them.

    I can't be of much help on the non-functioning notification light. I haven't had the problem, and while I vaguely remember reading threads about it, but I don't recall fixes. Perhaps try an alternate SMS/MMS client (Go SMS or Handcent perhaps)?

    thanks for all your assistance and advise ,,I think since the phone is less than 2 weeks old I will bring it back to verizon and have them check it out first.....If it is something they could easily fix,,because it was working then just stopped....

    have you tried clearing the cache/data of the messaging app or calendar (whichever app uses pulse)?
