Im sending right now 5 dollars from Chile. :)
Edit: Done :) Thanks dx for all your work. I know 5 dollars is not even worth what you do for us, but it is still something.
Watch the multi-post, mjames.
I've seen you do the multi-post more than once.
firmware and baseband version?

Even the status bar is white :o
AFAIK handcent has its own settings, also you can set the led light to "Always Pulse" even if the screen is on.
Go to Settings > CyanogenMod Settings > User Interface > Led Notifications. Im not sure if this will work on 3rd party message app...
