Re: Weird Screen? And no text indicator?

So you're out of luck with the Intrepid if notification lights are of any importance to you.

And yes, it is a major flaw.

I remember the treo screensaver mode. It was interesting but probably eats (some) battery and most smartphones these days don't offer that option unless you're plugged in. Again you'd normally rely on the indicator light, but it will never work on the Intrepid.
I in lieu of a screen lighting up (for incoming texts) or a screen saver indicator (for missed calls/texts), Samsung opted for an LED indicator.....which doesn't work.

Damn...maybe I should've opted for an HTC Snap. But then again, almost everything has issues. Too bad, no one developed a work-around for this.
