    wouldnt it be another notifier ? like the one on the outside to the right of the camera ?
    like if youre using it open and get a message it would start blinking red ?
    thats just my guess as im still waiting for rogers to release it up here ...

    It's probably the light sensor. Does the screen darken and brighten automatically on the 8220 like other BB's?

    Well putting your finger over the light-sensing indicator on a BB will not cause the screen to immediately shut off. If the 8220 had this feature, which I believe it does, and it isn't a LED that lights up at any point, I would say it's the light-sensing indicator.

    I could be wrong as I have not see one of these devices yet but someone else will come along and correct me if that isn't what it is.

    The screen goes off when its about at a 30-40 degree angle and when it does shut down there is a click noise (same with opening) that i think comes from the part where it flips (the middle part when its opened)

    that would make a lot of sesns.
    When you just cover it (dont actually put your finger on it), does the screen dim ?

    Well answer this: Does the device brighten and darken automatically on your device? I just read the specs for the 8220 and that feature is on the device, unless it's been turned off, the device should do this. Does it?

    The screen "turning off" is part of the standby mode. No matter how bright a light is or how dark a room is, the light-sensing device is not going to shut the screen off. The time-out feature of the device going into standby mode is what will shut the screen off.

    Which is a feature of the Flip, just like a laptop, you close the lid and the screen shots off, it doesn't dim out.

    What do your have your screen brightness set to? If it's set to 100% you won't see a change. But try setting your screen brightness to 30% and then expose that area to bright light and see if the screen gets brighter. If it does then it is a light sensor.
