    Camera light (LED flash for alerts)

    I've read that the iPhone must be face down. Does that help?

    I'm curious if it continues to blink intermittently until a notification is responded to (like a Blackberry). Or does it only alert one time (3 blinks)?

    That's exactly how I set it up and it worked for me. Although, it only seemed to blink at the time of the alert...it didn't continue if I left it unchecked. It's also extremely bright (same as the flash, clearly); I'd have expected it to be softened to about half-brightness, but alas.

    As far as being face down, mine blinked while being held in my hand and in use...so I don't think orientation matters.

    Yeah, alas... on the single alert and full brightness. Sigh. Thanks for the info.

    No problem. I was super bummed. I had intended to use it in classes so that I would have some sort of indication of receiving texts/mail/what-have-you as opposed to complete silence or an extremely noticeable vibrate...but I think the LED indicator would be blindingly more obvious - almost as much as keeping sound on.
