    LEDs are generally very stable units. While it is possible for them to burn out, they have a longevity the exceeds all of their opponents.

    I wouldn't worry too much about your LED burning out - just enjoy the program and use it for its intended purpose.

    It shouldn't burn out. LEDs are normally rated for 100,000 hours which works out to about 11.4 years (if they were on all the time). Also the constant on off doesn't affect them either, so that's a non-issue.

    When in doubt, pull the battery out.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)yes, like cookie monster said, 100,000 hours is the rating. By the time the led burned out your blackberry would be so old a caveman could use it.
