    Just popped in my head while browsing mac rumors.....

    Since we do not have any led light notifications that tells us of a missed call, message ect.

    Is it possible to come up with a tweak to have your backlit light of the screen flash once every 2 or 3 seconds (I guess you can adjust to your liking) when you receive a message or a missed call?

    Like i said......just a random thought..............

    This idea was mentioned when the phone first released with an led flash. I don't think it really went anywhere but its still a good thought. Apple really needs to add a notification light on the front of the phone.

    They could easily hide an LED behind the glass beside the speaker

    As long as it could be toggled on and off. Blinking lights at night when I'm sleeping drives me nuts~:(

    Would it kill the battery to power the whole lcd and then have say only a light in the corner?

    They should put one either in the home button or up at the top (like the green light on Macs when you use iSight).

    Sounds like you need a BlackBerry.

    Personally I can't stand blinking LEDs

    I used the love the blinking on my old phone....its easy to miss a cal etc and so I liked ot have a reminder. notifier used to have a reminder part of it that you could set repeat ones for missd emails, SMS, calls etc, but I think the upgrade to ios 4 killed this and its never been worked on since.

    Which wouldn't stop it from annoying those of us that don't want it at all.

    And really, the proper response is "Stop sleeping with your eyes open" :D
