    I know it can only be shown on a 4 at the moment, but it will probably look the same on the 4S.

    Yep, you can't take a picture if it doesn't exist. NO LED on iPhone 4S. (Use the camera flash on the back)
    dwfw and BLiNK like this.

    I think they meant the CAMERAS LED light being able to be used as a notification alert.

    And that is very possible with iOS5, seeing as it's a new feature and all

    The info is; well........its there.

    Settings---->Accessibility--->LED Flash for Alerts (its a on off switch)

    Flashes whenever you'd normally get an alert


    iOS5 has a whole bunch of new accessibility options.

    thanks- I dont have my phone yet, so I cant check it out until it comes. I was hoping to have different alerts for email vs text message, but it sounds like it will all be together

    Different colored LED notifications like with Android devices?


    Or different sounds with the different alerts? 'cause that is doable with iOS5 now

    To me it seems kind of cheesy for apple to use the camera flash has a notification light. Knowing how apple usually design things I'm surprised they didn't actually include a notification light on the 4s. Hopefully, it'll be on the iPhone 5.

    This isn't a gimmick, its for people with disabilities to make it easier for them to use their phone.

    I didn't think it was a gimmick. Just looking at how apple designs things I'd figure they would put a dedicated notification light instead of using the camera flash. But now that you mentioned it being for people with disabilities a camera flash is a hell of a lot brighter than a notification light!!!

    I agree that using the camera light is not very "apple." There should be some sort of notification on the front.

    I am very happy to hear that I can use different sounds for different alerts

    ... wow... how'd you miss that? That is what I said - that there was no dedicated notification LED and that the camera LED flash should be used for that function...

    I'm using the LED light for text notifications on my Iphone4. You can select between 5 vibration patterns. You can make your own custom vibration to go along with it. The LED light blinks for calls and texts when on. But you can't see it unless you have your phone face down, otherwise its pointless. But a great feature at night when phone is on silent watching a movie or something.
