    Other than the Blackberry, does anyone know of a phone that has an indicator light when you've got a new call or message waiting? I know the Blackberry's do but my wife hates them and she wants the same feature like hew old Sanyo Katana that had a blinking led when she missed a message or call. Can anyone help?

    I havent seen that feature since my old LG VX3300 (at least for the plain phones)... I wonder why most phone makers phased this out?

    I don't know if this is the same with Verizon, but Sprint's Palm Treo's all have message indicator lights. Sprint's Palm Centro can have its LED indicate missed calls, voicemails, and messages as well (but a 3rd party program is needed... like AttentionGrabber). Maybe Verizon's (past) versions of the Treo and Centro can do the same thing... :confused:

    The LG Rumor has a status light on the right side of the screen that blinks red after a message.

    This is probably why I didnt see anything about the indicator lights besides the charging when I went to Palm Centro website.

    Yes it is. Just install Attention Grabber 2.2. It's a free app, so it doesn't cost anything.
