    Been using an 8530 for a year or so with BerryBuzz. I've been happy with it. My 8530 broke and while it was getting repaired I used an 8330i (pretty sure that's the model, was a Nextel too) and I noticed the LED was significantly brighter. Way brighter, maybe bigger?

    Is the 9930 LED more like the 8530 or 8330i?

    LED looks like, and I've read, like the Torch 9800.

    Do you know how the Torch 9800 compares to the Curve II? I'm not familiar with the Torch 9800.

    Thanks.

    The Torch is a round LED and I think not quite as bright.
    Other BB 83xx, 97xx have the vertical LED which I think is brighter.

    We'll know soon but you could stop by an AT&T and see the Torch LED...

    yes, exactly as technik1 said. It is not as bright as other devices.

    For me, the round LED is only thing which I don't prefer at the moment. But, I may get used to it, don't know until I have this in my hand.

    My co-worker owns a Torch and so did I a very long time ago. I honestly do not see a problem with the LED notification. It is very bright enough for me to see even if I am standing on the other side of the room. Just set a really annoying ringtone to make everybody hate you. That way you will never miss a call/email/sms. I used the hunter's pounce from Left 4 Dead, scares people all the time when set loud enough in a quiet room. LOL

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I don't have a problem with the round LED on my Curve, I just thought the vertical LED was really cool for the short time I used the phone.

    Berry Buzz has a "bright" selection for all of its colors, so that helps a little bit.

    I do use that too, thanks. Just that the LED on that 8330i really jumped out....too bright, maybe.....

    The older LEDs used on models such as the 8900 were bright. The LED on the Torch is more muted. However, the advantage (or advancement) is that it allows for a greater assortment of colours. Using BeBuzz on an older model involved blending two different colours together that changed depending on viewing angle, and wasn't as nice looking. I prefer the newer LEDs.

    The 9900 LED is bright and much more vivid than the Torch Led. The Torch LED seemed to be set back from the LED window where the 9900 LED is bright and right against the glass screen. It is PLENTY bright
