This discussion is so ridicluous. It really is. I don't want one becasue it will make my phone ugly...LOL. Really?
Just in case anyone hasn't noticed the LED feature is already there. Apple did put it in to the new software but didn't change the hardware. Do you really think they addressed this want becasue they have no intent to keep it? DO you really think when the hardware changes in the fall the camera flash is going to be the LED? Really?

Why is it such a crime on these forums to want something more?
- 08-09-2012, 01:14 AM #108
Because it seems to be a crime around here right up until the point where Apple does something to change or add then the fanboys jump on board like it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. It will be there. Apple didn't configure it into their OS last year becasue they didn't see a demand for it. The company chose to not change it's hardware at that time but they did what they could. This time around it appears the hardware is changing. It will be there.

You're asking us to keep our minds open to individual preferences, but you sure are quick to label "some" iOS users' opinions and choices as "waiting for Apple to tell them what's best", and not as "preferences" many people might feel about the simplicity of the stock iOS.
To you, it SEEMS that iOS users at large are indeed stupid, because you firmly believe that a practiced iOS user would simply choose your "Custom" option, while the "ever so cool" Android/Web user would certainly choose "Open"? What, you think we don't know what "open source" means?
All of which in turn says a couple of things about you liking your jailbroken iPhone so much after all...
I've had a whole week with the GSIII. I also tried the Nexus for a couple of days. Demos. Also had to manage at some point the whole bunch of what smartphones we sell, for clueless customers in need of service. I appreciated the Nexus, and really liked my time with the GSIII. But they're not my thing. It's not my blind devotion for Apple that always gets me back on my iPhone quick. No, it's sort of my hand. Sometime during the day I'll realize that what I'm reaching for is not the one I'm demoing, no matter how much I can appreciate it. And then I'll get my iPhone out instead, and it feels in it's place and gets to do everything I need and looks exactly how I want it to and I like it - it's as simple as that! It is not necessary for me to agree with every aspect of what Apple would like its iPhone to be - and not to be. It's more that Apple is the company that releases the iPhone. And a great couple of other well thought products. That's what I like Apple for.

i remember last year around this time people threatening to leave the iPhone (4S) if it did not have an LED light. now to me, that is just as ridiculous as the people who do not want it or worse!

Get over myself? Sorry if I came across as arrogant. That was not my intent. Perhaps I am spoiled from having been a part of the webOS community for so long. There were rarely any judgmental posts in those forums. I knew I was going to encounter it, but I still found it amusing to witness the iOS crusaders first-hand. And just to be clear, I'm NOT lumping all iOS users (nor everyone on this forum) into the "Apple-can-do-no-wrong-crusader" camp. I have seen plenty of posts here from users like me who feel that choice is good.
I have certainly had to lower my expectations in my move to iPhone. I've seen the features list for iOS 5.2 (aka iOS 6) and my expectations were lowered further. I came into this fully understanding that Apple will give its customers what Apple thinks is best. I imagine it's a culture born from the success of the iPod and the MP3 revolution it sparked. Is it still the best of the rest? Yes it is, or I would not be here.

Re: iPhone 5 Notification LED
I agree with this post entirely. I had an an iPhone 4 sold it, got an SGII and just bought an iPhone 5 on Saturday. I wouldn't mind an notification and a few other features. There is always room for improvement and we can only just hope Apple will become edgier as the years go on.

iPhone 5 Notification LED
You can sort of get an LED notification feature at least for iMessages and SMS. Not sure if it works for other notifications.
It's under the accessibility options to have the flash LED blink when you get a message. However I don't think it continues to blink until you check, it just blinks when you would otherwise hear the alert.

Re: iPhone 5 Notification LED
There is a work around for a quasi notification light by using a Accessibility feature already built in to the iPhone, no hacking or jail breaking needed.
It was discussed in a blog that can be found here:
How to turn the iPhone’s camera flash into a blinking alert light | here's the thing
Personally it might be OK to have one that could be turned on or off, but when I had a Blackberry, I was never too fond of the bright flashing in the room at night when I was trying to sleep and a message came through in the middle of the night turning the room into a disco.

iPhone 5 Notification LED
Hmm, i dont realy want one, or miss one for that matter. But if it had one i would probably use it. Its a extra feature. And if apple can make it "invissible" and with a function to turn it off, then why not? The home button seems a good idea. But as it is, it does not have one and im not missing it.
Edit: on the side of the phone maybe? There are macbooks i think ive read, where the alu is so thin u can see the light throu it. Would make it invissible
