What does the flashing green light mean?

Hey all,

Have a Curve 8330.  I know what the red and blue indicator lights mean, but what does the green light mean?  I have no new messages or missed calls.  It only started doing that within the last couple of weeks.

Thanks.

Rosie

Welcome to the forums Smiley Happy

 

The green light is usually a coverage indicator. Go into Options>Screen/Keyboard and set LED Coverage Indicator to Off. Does that help?

 

You could also try a Battery Pull:
1. Remove the battery while phone is turned on
2. Wait a few seconds before inserting it again
3. Allow the long boot up process to finish (takes a few minutes usually)

This clears most software issues that occur on blackberries from time to time. You could also use Quickpull, a free app that simulates a battery pull without physically removing the battery: http://software.crackberry.com/product.asp?id=27660
A battery pull reclaims memory lost during application usage and clears minor software errors that creep in over time. The blackberry runs an OS just like your PC runs windows and the battery pull is the equivalent of a reboot/restart on your computer.

Re: What does the flashing green light mean?

Ok so I have a BB Torch 9810 and what I found out about the flashing green light is the coverage LED. So go to options-display-screen display and scroll down to LED coverage and uncheck the box and WHALLA! Hope it helps.
