LED is flickering in about 5 to 7 colours.

LED light is flickering (not flashing) to in all possbile colours. It changes to standard flashing with appropriate coloured light to alert a message and then once the message is checked goes back to its multi-coloured flickering.

What am I missing?

This is made possible by the use of third party applications such as BeBuzz or LED Alerts and more


I would suggest checking your installed applications for anything out of the ordinary.

This is signal notification LED, it gives different colour to different level of wireless signal you are getting in your phone. It is called 'LED Coverage Indicator'. To change this,

goto options --> Display --> Screen Display --> in Backlight  uncheck LED Coverage indicator.
