I'm talking about a visual NOT audio notification.
On my Blackberry, there is a little LED light on it that blinks if I have a missed call/SMS/email/task etc. It is very handy if I am away from my phone and someone calls, I can visually see that without having to wake the phone up. It is especially handy in the car since I often leave the phone on silent.
The ideal thing would to let the screen stay in sleep mode and have a small area, maybe the size of a pencil eraser blink every 30 seconds or so.
If there is already something like this out there, please let me know.

Wow...I had this thought yesterday. I was searching some other things for SP3.0 and found this site. Was browsing these post and saw yours.
I was going to suggest the very same thing...exactly.
Just a small area in the upper left or right that would blink when you have a missed call/sms/email, etc. Mainly for calls and SMS since email delivery is a joke anyway.
I wish/hope/would pay money for such a feature.

Funny this is never something I thought about when I had my first 3G, but since I switched back from the Bold to the 3GS, I actually mentioned this exact thing to my wife the first day I had my iPhone again. It's pretty useful IMO.

edwilk- That is exactly what I had in mind. It doesn't need to say if it is a missed call or sms, just needs to let you know "hey, you missed something, wake me up to see what it is".
