    I just got a iPhone 4S, and just spent the better part of the morning getting a custom ringtone to work. Seemed a bit complicated!

    Anyway, is there a way to have it blink, and continue to blink every few seconds, upon receiving a text message, (missed) call, or other notifications?
    It would be nice to know at a glance whether something has happened requiring my attention.
    I found out how to make it light up upon receiving a call, which might be good for the deaf, but this isn't quite what I'm after.

    Thanks!

    No there isn't a way to do that on existing iPhones. I could be mistaken, but I think Android-style phones have a patent on the blinking light notification.

    Really?!? That's funny. "Blinking Light" patent. Seems pretty vague/broad!

    I'm not 100% sure on that, I just seem to recall reading something about it recently. I could be way off.
