We don't really have a spec for any indications other than charging.
If possible, I would do this:

RED non-flashing - battery charging
GREEN flashing - new message or missed call

So while receiving a new message while charging, the LED gives a 
continuous red, while flashing green (this is off the top of my head).
Can we do this?
