Red LED frequently flashing

Hi, my girlfriend has a new Curve 8520. Since she got it a few days ago the red LED keeps flashing. It seems to start when she receives a message. She then reads the message, replies etc but the light keeps flashing.


Is this is a fault or is it a strange setting I need to turn off?

Try a battery pull.

Re: Red LED frequently flashing

RED led notifies if you have any unread email, SMS, MMS or missed phone call. If all these are read then this should go off. Moreover, even if you have unread email, SMS, MMS or missed phone call after 15 mins RED led flashing should be stopped.


I would recommend you to have a battery pull device reset and then check the behavior.
