    Coming from Blackberry, this would be awesome. We love our customizable LED's! Can you change the colors depending on notification type (FB, Twitter, email, SMS, etc.)? If not, what does it actually notify for?

    The only thing I've seen the little light do is turn red when charging and turn green when charging is complete. There are no settings that mention this light.

    Flashing green is also a missed call on my HD7.

    Hmm, ok. I noticed the HD7S was constantly blue at the ATT store. It was plugged in and all that.

    Does MS not give control of this for developers?

    Yes, you only get light for charging or missed calls.
    Nothing for texts or emails and no chance to change colours.

    This is a big thing I miss after my HTC Desire on SG2 I got around with an app which did displayed such things on the lock screen but can't do this with WP7:dry

    Instead of following the rest of the herd, I'd like a mini live tile to pop up in one of the corners and flip to show you what alerts you have.

    Honestly, I think the only real benefit to customized LED notifications are that you can tell the message you get just from the LED without having to unlock the screen. Its pretty minor, but something you get used to. And its kinda cool getting different colors for different messages. :D. I can obviously live without it, but I had hopes since it seems HTC phones do seem to have notification LED's.

    So dev's don't have access to this control in Mango? (BlackBerry requires an App for this too.)

    Devs have limited sensor access in WP7. Actually, we get abstracted sensor information, not direct sensor access.

    If I switch to WP, I will really miss the LED notifications I get with WebOS.

    To vote on this and let Microsoft know, click here: Blinking LED notification for Missed Calls Email SMS Bluetooth

    Update: I did switch to WP, and funnily enough, I don't miss the LED notification. I'm very used to just checking the lock screen now.
