    LED colors... WHY???

    Advertisement



    Why the hell would blackberry have all kinds of LED colors for notifications but you cant enable them without buying an app for $6. This is the biggest waste of money, these should already be enabled.... so dumb... I like all the colors but im not buying after my trial period for this app is over.

    While I agree they should be accessed remember most of the diff colors are combinations of the existing LEDs

    I have no problem paying $5 to have a lot of options for diff emails/sms. Nice to be able to tell at a glance if its bbm (red), sms (diff colors) or email (green). Esp when on vibrate or if I miss the tones.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    Well to take the op a bit further:
    Why pay for any extras that could and should be included in the os?

    The answer is simple (and clarkkent51ny hit on it): preference. Some of us prefer alert colors. We accept that its not included and are willing to pay a (small) fee to have them.

    While the op thinks its dumb, I could find numerous examples of such things on just about any device.

    Before I got this I felt the same way but since I got it I have to say its real nice to have. I can tell at a glance like jf said. My phones on vibrate most of the time so its real nice for quick identification of emails and such.

    They put in the different LEDs for what RIM sees as standard and common need/use. Blue for BT, green for coverage indicator, amber for low battery, red for messages.

    The fancy options to have other colors is not something everyone wants, RIM provided the essentials and 3rd party developers fill the needs for the eye candy we want added.
