    Hi guys, I was having the same problem of no SMS LED notification on my Xperia Ray after ugrading to ICS. I’ve download the noLED app which I find works really well, when I receive a text a small envelope icon shows on screen (when in standby). This has the effect of keeping the screen “on” so that the LED notification still blinks. I’m also using Lightflow Lite to control the LED. Hope this helps!

    I also have this problem. After upgrading from 4.0.3 (where there was problem with missed calls LED notification) to 4.0.4 (only missed calls notifications work). How long may it take to fix such bug?
