Blinking red LED during phone call
 
It blinks very quickly (like 2 per second) during a phone call.

How do I turn this off?

Thanks

Take a backup and format the device.

Seriously? No. That's not the answer.

OP, are you sure it's the LED and not the light sensor?

Yes, I am sure it's the LED. And I have no message coming in at the time.

It sounds like the PROXIMITY SENSOR and not the full LED.

I have a 9300. I don't think it has that sensor. And it blinks when I use a headset.

It does have that sensor. All devices do. The sensor blinks much faster than the LED, and it will blink when you use a headset because it's trying to determine if it can turn off the screen.

As a test, make a call on your headset, manually lock the screen so that it is not lit, and see if you are still seeing a light.

One thought is its the blink you get when using a Bluetooth device. The OP said red but maybe its blue and looks red to the OP. The only other thing that I can think of is a color display APP is causing this.

Rambo47, your just jealous because you did not think of doing a format first;-) :razz:

Bluetooth off.

Is there such thing as a IT policy setting to enforce the blinking?

Yes there is and it could be cause of this. To verify, from your device, go to Options > Security > Security Status Info > Click View IT Policy and see what restrictions are enabled.

Force LED Blinking When Microphone Is On IT policy rule
