  2. With the latest update on my Samsung galaxy s3, suddenly the camera/assistive light comes on/flashes whenever my phone rings or even in vibration mode! I find that extremely annoying. I've gone through all of my phone settings and can't find anywhere that I can adjust this setting. Any ideas on how to turn this setting off?!

    1. Hi Karen Cousins,
      Thanks for coming.
      This issue is triggered by the new option on Android 4.3 called Flash notification under the Accessibility menu. You need to turn it on then turn it off and then followed by restarting your phone. To see the complete steps, feel free to visit our post here:
