    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4.

    At times, the face time camera seems to have a red light on. At first I thought it was the sun shining on the lens or something, but at night if Im on a phone call, I can clearly see a red light on where the camera is.

    For the record, facetime calls work great.

    Anyone know what it might be?

    This isn't a light. Its the proximity sensor. It works using infrared light, which is just beyond the abilities of the human eye. Sometimes if the conditions are right, the human eye can see a slight red color coming from an infrared light source.
