    This is a wierd question after having the phone for a week and a half but: What's up with the LED light?
    -Mine is always flashing even though I have checked my messages, AOL email and Gmail.
    -Are there different colors? I always see green.
    Since I obviously don't get it, if there are different colors what do they mean and how do I manage t the LED if at all?

    Do you have any icons in the upper left corner? If so, slide down the bar and see what they are. Get rid of all those and the light will stop.

    Green generally means text messages or email from my experience..

    Are you looking at your notification window? It drags down from the top of the screen. Try hitting the "clear" button and see if it goes away.

    Are you using Handcent or SMS Popup? Anything like that? If so, even if you delete a message, you still have to go to notifications to discard the empty shell of a message it leaves behind.

    Thanks!

    I've only seen green so far. Just keep an eye on the notification bar at the top because that is where Android tells you everything. New messages, missed calls, downloads completed, apps installed, etc.

    I have seen green for notifications and red for battery about to die. Doubt there are any other colors than those 2.

    There are LOTS of colors! At least, there were/are for the myTouch, and I'd be very surprised if the Droid were less capable in that regard.

    download Call Back Pro (reminds you to return calls), and you can choose from the following LED colors:

    Magenta
    Red
    Blue
    Green
    Orange
    Cyan
    Pink

    Note: Just tried Cyan, works great, and looks really nice! I'm sure all the other colors work as well, don't have time to check each of them out. By the way, Call Back Pro is worth the money, nice app!
    Haven't tried all of the colors on my Droid, but they all worked on the myTouch, and I'd be VERY surprised if they don't work on our Droids...

    Been using the beta of chompSMS for 2.0 and one thing I notice it does that handcent didn't do is when you open a message either through the notification bar or the program itself it clears your notifications.

    Some apps allow you to make a custom led color from RGB sliders for their notification. So there are in fact A LOT of colors possible, it can produce practically any color.

    I believe sms popup was one app that allowed you to create your own led color, if anyone wanted to play with it. (I got rid of it for handcent so I can't say for sure that app allowed a custom led color, but I'm pretty sure it did.)

    There's also this led tester app to play around with the led color. It's kind of buggy and laggy with the droid but there is still some functionality.

    In theory that little led can produce over 16.5 million different colors.

    there are no other colors programmed witht the phone. However...if you download handcent sms, you can use different colors and different sms screen formats (even the iphone if thats your thing). LOL:motdroidhoriz:

    Anyone figure out how to get white yet? I haven't seen it, and Missed Call allows white, but it comes out as teal.
