At any rate, the problem with the Intrepid is typically the moment the phone goes into low power suspend mode, the light stops blinking (or anywhere from 3 to 30 seconds after suspend). So the message indicator is useless, and you have to actually turn on the phone to see if you have any notifications.
Then to top it off the new WM6.5 lock notification screen is broken on the Intrepid - it will show VM/email, etc. but that indicator will disappear within a second or so, which it is not supposed to do. On HTC lock screens you can tap the lock icon to bring up a sub-menu and slide the submenu items to go directly to that item (like call voicemail or open the SMS messaging account).
ok thanks doesn't seem like the light signal bug is too bad. I personally charge my phone like every other day anyway. But by turn on the phone, you do mean just like push a side button to turn the backlight on right? Or did I misunderstand you and the phone goes into a "sleep"/hibernate mode when the battery is too low?
And for the second bug, I believe I saw a fix for that in your guide anyway correct?
