Does anyone know how long the button 'pulses' for when you receive a new notification?

I think i've found where it lives in the registry ;)

If anyone wants to change it, try changing:

HKLM\Drivers\Builtin\Keypad\BreathTimeout

The value is in milliseconds, i.e. a value of 3600000 should have the device pulsing for an hour ;)

Phone ringing The light flashes on with 3 quick pulses and then fades off.
New E-mail Breathing (the light cycles between fading on and
fading off ).
New Text Message Long Flashing (the light flashes on every three seconds,
repeating three times).
New Voice Message Short Flashing (the light flashes on every second, repeating
three times).
Power On The light slowly fades on and then slowly fades off.

Which notification does this extend? All of them, or just a missed call... voicemail... new email... new text message. If it's all, then does it just cycle through the different notifications?

This extends 'breathe', but you should be able to extend any!

The email notification is the one that 'breaths' -- does that mean we'd see new email alerts for an extended period, or any notification would extend and use the 'breath' alert?

This extends 'breathe', but you should be able to extend any!

You need to use "SDA Application Unlock" first...

Have you changed the setting on yours? Personally, I'd rather have extended notification for texts, missed calls, and voicemail but >not< email. I'm thinking this would take the form of the intial alert-type specific flashing and then an extended alert that's the same regardless of the event (i.e. rapid flash 3 times for a new text and then breathing until you hit a button)... Maybe a 3rd party app will come out to assist... With luck, it would include an option to turn of the navigation wheel rotating function ;)

Email ones should extend!
