Default notification lights - 08-17-2010, 06:59 PM

is there no notification light on the dell streak to show that an email/txt/voicemail has arrived?

am i missing something or is there something in the setting?

i thought one of the front 3 touch sensitive buttons would flash for a while or something like on my old htc touch pro

Mine sounds a couple of tones and vibrates with incoming calls or emails. I think I had to enable them.

No notification light on the Streak I'm afraid..

Maybe someone will make something to make them flash as the userbase grows.

Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Do the buttons even light up? I have to say not checked thoroughly or noticed if they do..

Dell Streak newbie. Using as an internet tablet on wifi only.

You might want to check out Missed Reminder. It can be set up to briefly light the screen and/or vibrate until you dismiss a reminder.
