Got phone yesterday, T-mobile G3 D851, so far have one major issue - LED notification doesn't work for Gmail. It works for Twitter, missed phone calls, text messages, but Gmail is dead, I have to wake up phone every time I want know if I have new mail. My previous phone is G2, still have it, no such problems. I searched G3 settings, left no stone unturned, nothing. Google search brings only one result from xda-devs where poster complains about same issue, but the thread is short, no one gives him a good advice, and it's not clear which G3 he has, EU, ATT, Tmobile or etc.

The lack of outcry on the web makes me think that it's just me and the phone has to be exchanged. If you can, please confirm my worst fears or tell me how to fix this.

Tnanks a bunch.

I can confirm that notifications work in Gmail on my phone, both sound and green flashing LED.

Do you have stock non-rooted T-moble D851 ?

How long ago did you get it ?

Thanks.

Thanks.

Yeah, root isn't available yet, I'm on stock rom. I got it on Friday the 11th. Are messages getting pushed to your phone? Check label settings in your gmail tabs and make sure notifications are checked. They weren't for me initially.

It works now, your advice helped. Turns out Gmail doesn't have separate check box for LED notification, just checkboxes for vibration/sound which aslo affect LED. LED frequency is slow, but at least I know my G3 is not defective. Thank you.

Glad to help, and glad it worked out for you.
