    At night, I can see a very faint red light to the upper left of the Blackberry logo on the front. I'm assuming it's the proximity sensor?

    Nevertheless, it blinks really fast and "permanently". Is it supposed to stay on like that?

    You're right. Proximity sensor. Should it blink all the time? Probably not. You can decide what to do.

    1) Wipe your device, start fresh, see if that fixes it.
    2) Get a replacement device
    3) Exorcise the demons inside your phone.
    4) Forget about it, close your eyes and go to sleep, as one does when in bed.

    I was kept up all night because of how shiny my new Classic is :-)

    Kidding aside, it's not annoying, just wondered if it could be a problem (battery drain? shorter lifespan?).

    Thanks for the reply,

    I've noticed that blinking light only when I make a call.

    I think I might have figured it out. I deactivated flip-to-mute and flip-to-sleep, and the light's gone now. Bummer, but I guess those features can anyway be taxing on the battery sooooo... yeah, I'll keep them off for now.

    Those features need the proximity. The proximity sensor is active when on call because it tells your screen to turn off when it's near your face.

    Quality under the skin.

    I understand the need during a call, it's just when NOT on call that puzzled me.
