Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

I have no missed calls, emails, messages, instant messages, vmails, but the red light is still flashing... what else could it mean?

I had the same issue before the recent upgrade.  It would show a voice mail icon on the phone and my light would flash.  Since the upgrade however i have not had that issue.

Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

This has been occurring for me, not so much with the flashing red LED light, but with a icon on the main screen, showing a 1 then something that looks like 0__0.  I have called my voice mail, there are no messages at all (I've called several times to be sure) and I have checked my Visual VoiceMail application, and there's nothin gin there either.  I have pulled the battery to reset it, but still it's there, and won't go away...

 

Anyone know how to get it gone??

I did not have this with .065 and now have it with .075 .

 

I get a visual VM and listen to it and the red light continues flash it does eventually go out but its really annoying..

Mine started doing the same thing - no reason. Searched the web (Google, etc.)  - no joy.   So  I just pulled the battery and re-booted the phone.  Problem solved, so far.

any IM msg

missed call

email

SMS

pin

MMS

I don't have any new email messages, im, twitter, FB, mms or anything else (no new messages) yet my red led light keeps flashing.  What's up w/ that?

For me it was weather bug causing it.

Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

Mine's started doing this... I don't want to have to do a battery pull every time it happens.

 

Surely someone ''in the know'' has an answer?
