    Depends on my mood. Sometimes on, sometimes off.

    Off here, especially since I know Iggy'll let me know when I've got something I should take a look at. Used to have it on when I had my 8703 last year and nearly drove myself nuts waiting for it to blink so I could see if the light would be green or red.

    How do you turn off the light? I had all mine off on my normal phones, but I have never seen an option for it on the 8830.

    OFF -- no need for it. The red light to notify of messages is a MUST though!

    Always off. I am never worried about checking coverage. I had it on for a few hours one day and it about drove me nuts. I would find myself staring at it for excessive amounts of time. Just the red one please.

    I used to leave it on all the time, but it irritates me at night, so I think I'm going to leave it off from now on. I always look to see what signal I have before I call anyway.

    How do you change the colour of the light? I would love to have different colours for my two email accounts. Work red and personal yellow or something.

    Possibly the one thing I don't like about my BlackBerry. I pretty much have coverage everywhere I go in my area so I don't need the incessant blinking to remind me. :\ Luckily it can be turned off.

    The first night I had my 'berry it was flashing off the ceiling of my room. I turned the green light off and left the red one on. Thats what works best for me!

    Within 5 minutes of my first sleep with my BB, Coverage Indicator was disabled. Couldn't deal with the green beacon pulsating on my walls & ceiling.

    off, that light every 30sec is so annoying.

    Just red for my messages, and purple for my JiveTalk!
    Is that a feature only available with the curve, having a purple LED for jivetalk? The only LED for notification that I have been aware of on my 8130 is the red?

    I leave mine on, it draws ever more attention to my bb (along with the orange skin) (my bb's orange skin, not mine)

    I turn it off because I'm convinced it saves battery life. I only have the red for new msgs and purple for jivetalk. Now I'm trying to figure out how to turn off the blue for the bluetooth.
