    Do you have any apps that alert you silently ie- weather apps for active advisories?

    It doesn't have to be a weather app check any 3rd party app that might alert you, and yes a battery pull will fix it. If it comes back after a battery pull then I would bet money on an app trying to alert you of something.

    Great to hear watch that red light if it comes back on after the battery pull then check for some alert from one of your apps

    There is a program called "LED reset" that I use all the time for that reason. It will shut off the blinking or constant LED light.

    Visual voice mail will continue to blink red for about 15 minutes after you listen to / delete any new mail also.

    If I remember correctly, I believe mine flashed red the last time My battery went down too low.
    May be the reason...the battery pull may have just interrupted it.

    Of course that depends on if you remember what your battery strength was at the time.

    You may be right, I was trying to remember what color it was. I wasn't completely sure...just wanted to throw some more info in here and see if someone corrected me. Thanks

    That's is correct: the green light is for low battery and no you are not crazy

    Mine flashes yellow when the battery is extremely low. Or maybe I'm losing it?
