    Blinking notification light

    Anyone besides me looking for this app or option? What are the lights above the top speaker for?

    It's not a light, it's the sensor for the backlight. It also senses when the phone is held to your ear during a call to turn off the screen.

    The notification light is the LED for the rear camera.
    You can turn it on by going to Settings>General>Accessibility>LED flash for alerts-Slide from off to on.

    I would love this feature if Apple put in a similar light to blackberrys or HTC's.

    iPhone 4 16GB Black - Jailbroken! (Sold)
    iPhone 4S 16GB White - Jailbroken! (Sold)
    iPhone 5 16GB Black - Coming Soon

    The phone have to be in sleep mode for the LED to blink upon incoming notification. If you are on the device, say reading a book and receive a phone call, the LED will not blink.

    I am curious why the iPhone 4s doesn't have a notification LED. Thats a deal breaker for me, I use earplugs at work, and my hands are full of mastic(glue), so I can't be touching my phone all the time to see if someone called. And I don't like wearing my phone, it gets in the way and gets dirty if I wear it. Blackberry has the LED, why can't Apple? Good also for finding your phone in the dark, with a Blackberry you can have the LED flash GREEN when in service. Even my 15 yo Samsung had a flashing notification LED!

    Yes, the iPhone has this feature. Look in settings under access ability. Scroll to the bottom and you will see the setting to turn it on. It is off by default.
