    Is anyone else having a problem with the camera flash not working for alerts all the time? Mine will work for a bit after I turn the option on, then it will just stop flashing for alerts and phone calls until i go back into settings and shut it off and turn it back on again. This keeps happening. Is it a iOS 5 bug or a problem with my phone or software?

    I've had the same issue.

    keep in mind that the flash won't flash if you are using your phone (the screen has to be off).

    I do know this. The screen is always off and phone locked when the flash doesn't work. Anyone else having this problem?

    Yeah sometimes it stops working for some reason, just turn it off, force quit settings, then turn it back on and it should be working again.
