    Since the new update every time my screen is off a purple notification light starts blinking. Does anyone know what it means or maybe have the same issue so i know there's not nothing wring with my phone lol.

    Do you have something like softlite or other app that enables you to modify/change LED notifications installed?

    I had a similar thing happen. A blue led flashing. I thought it was strange since I had never seen anything but green. The led was flashing blue, but there were no new notifications. It turns out that I had an unread text message from earilier in the day. I am using handcent for text messaging. It has a setting for notification color, which was set to blue. Maybe the update changed something which allows the application (Handcent) to change the led color.

    If you have something like Light Flow LED Control installed, it tends to do that... not sure why, but it could be that (or similar app).

    I don't have any app on my phone for led color that's what's confusing me. I've only seen green red and blue I didn't even know purple was on it lol.

    Mine did that once for an unknown reason. I powered off and back on and it stopped.

    You might want to run away right now. That's the "armed nuclear detonator" indicator. When it turns from purple to red, you have ten seconds.

    Same thing

    Same thing is happening to me, I had to do a factory reset recently because the new update made my sound randomly shut off, and ever since then it's been happening, a couple days now.

    That only flashes when you have e-mails. Are you sure you checked them all?
