LED flashing light and email notifications!

i just got the curve 9300 and before had the curve 8520 and the flashing LED is so dim i can barely see it on my new one!

i have the phone on silent at work and use the LED to tell when i have a notification and i cant even see it in daylight hardly.

is there any way to make the red light flash up brighter like on the older model?

my sister has the new bold and hers is fine and bright.

Ive got the free bebuzz app and even when i select my fave contact as BRIGHT pink it is still really dim light.

 

Also i have my hotmail account set up on my bb.

When i get a new email the notification icon appears at the top but i cant view the email in my hotmail box only if i go into the "messages" icon. this isnt how it was before either!

 

HELP?

Re: LED flashing light and email notifications!

Ok, let's deal with one issue first,... the LED flashing.

Can you drop by a retail store and see if other 9300 device flash brighter as you would desire it to do so?

I wouldn't suggest getting a refund, but an device exchange for one that has the brighter LED.

I do not have a 9300 device on hand. I have used one and tested one, and played with. The LED flashing was fine, with nothing less bright about it that I would have noticed or made me remember "oh this is dim".

I don't know that, hence my suggestion to drop by where you purchased it and check another 9300 LED for comparison. There could certainly be some "personal preference" on this that you think it's not bright enough to you, but another 9300 might be brighter. There could some fault of your device. Do I think it's a fault on yours... I don't know. I haven't seen yours.

 

I'd also suggest that you UNinstall BeBuzz for now, completely uninstall, reboot your 9300 and test the LED from the native opertaing system settings.

Re: LED flashing light and email notifications!

The reason I notice that its so much dimmer is due to the fact that until Friday I had the curve 8250 which had a much brighter LED. I thought maybe they had changed and dimmed the LED for some reason on all of the newer models but if no one else is comp-laining then it could just be mine so il definitely head back and check in store.

 

Do you have any idea how to get my emails to come through to the email box rather than only into the “message” box?

 

And also do you know how to clear the home screen of all icons and calendar or do they have to be on there at all times?

 

Thanks

Yes, open your Messages folder > Menu key > Options > Inbox Settings and check or uncheck which email accounts you to view in your main Messages folder.

Do you mean the application icons you click on to open the applications?

 

You'll want to find a theme somewhere that has no icons on the homescreen. I don't know of one, there could be.

Try AppWorld and Mobihand.com
