Default Notifications for messages

Hi folks,

Is there any way to get decent notifications for messages on the Xperia Z2?

I'm used to old nokias and iphones. If I get a message it plays a sound (if the sound is on) and notifies me on screen. I don't need to turn on and unlock my phone to check if I have a missed message or a missed call.

So far on the Z2 I can just set the vibrate and tone, which is fine if I'm near the phone when I get the message, but if I'm not then I probably won't see it until I unlock the phone to do something, which could be hours later.

Can you set the Z2 to flash the led when there are missed calls/messages, or display something on the screen?

Usability-wise this is right up there with the motorola startac 130, which in my mind is still the most user unfriendly phone in the world.

If this can be done without a root/unlock it would be even better!

Try Frozen LED, a free app that let's you control the led notifications.
It let's you set colours and flashing speed for different apps.
Even better is you can set them by name. For example if my wife texts, messages or emails me the led flashes purple 4 times a second. Easy to spot.
