Change colour/color of LED warning light?

Is it possible to change the colour of the LED warning light (from the default red) when a new message has been received, or is any kind of customisation of the colour possible? For example, can I make it flash one colour for e-mails and another colour for SMSs? I know that different colours are possible, as it remains green when fully charged and plugged in, and it currently flashes red when any type of message has been received. I've also heard of third party apps that can change the colour, but is any kind of customisation possible without a third party app?

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

Yes there is a third party app (whose name escapes me right now).

It's in App World called ColorID it's price is right...free! There are several others to choose from

Thanks, Bifocals. I take it this isn't possible without a third party app, then?

Thanks very much.

 

I've just been looking at some of the third part apps, including non-free ones. BeBuzz LED Color Customizer looks good.
