Notification LED not lighting up?

Just got my GNex in the mail, everything is fantastic, except for the notification LED. i've gotten voicemails, texts, and emails, and nothing will make it light up. I can't find anything in the settings to turn it off/on, just a setting to make it pulse (which does nothing). Am I missing something, or am I gonna have to go get a replacement?

The notification light does not work for email/text/sms etc nativly. From what I have found out, manufacturers are removing this on phones. I purcahsed Light Flow, it is an absolutely amazing application, you can set different colors, tones, alers for different apps, test/sms/mms/missed calls etc. This is the only solution I have come up with but works great

My notification light works with emails.  I haven't tested it with text messages yet, as I would have to switch the SIM card to do so.  Is this something that VZW disabled?

This worked, thank you. I tried a few different apps, but none of them worked until this one. DIdn't even have to pay for it, they have a free version.
