LED notifications seems to be a little flaky. For alerts that are set to repeat (like messages), the LED will flash on all subsequent notifications. But missed call and voicemail alerts don't do that (and never have). They only fire once.
To top it off, LED Notifications silently stop working after a couple of days, even though the switch remains set to on. I hope they fix that soon.
Even though it's an LED, constant flashing of that light until you acknowledge it would be a battery drain, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for them to add the behavior you describe.

OK Chris, &, For That Matter, Everybody Who's Having Issues With The LED FLASHING ALERT On The iPhone 4S, I May Have Promising News For You.
I Just Spent The Last Hour Or So With An Apple Support Tech, Who Then Forwarded Me To A Senior Support Person. I E-Mailed Her This Link So That She Could Research This Issue.
Long Story Short, We Eventually Went Into The Settings - General - Reset - & Reset All Settings. 3 Minutes Later Tops, I Went Back Into The Settings - General - Accessibility, & Then Turned The LED FLASH FOR ALERTS Option ON. Tested It, & IT WORKED!!!!!!!!
Tested It A Couple of More Times & It Still Works!
I WANT TO THANK THE INCREDIBLY PATIENT APPLE SUPPORT STAFF, FOR AN AWESOME JOB!!!!
The Senior Support Tech Also Requested That I Relay To All Apple Product User That Their Techs Do NOT Monitor Their Support Discussions. Sooooo, If Your Having Issues With Your Apple Product, Call 1-800-MYAPPLE, & They Will Do Their Best To Assist You With Your Problem. AND I Am Not Affiliated With Apple In Any Way. I'm In Law Enforcement!

No, it seems to only flash DURING the incoming call, not afterward to notify you you've missed one. I was also hoping for a text message LED indicator. I've just switched over from years w/ a BlackBerry and miss some of the logical options I was used to, but I do like the features the iPhone offers that the BBerry never could.

My iphone 4S is my first Apple phone and this "missed call alert" is something I really need. Unfortunately IOS 5 doesn't have this function. There are good applications for JB phones but none for standart...

Yep it's ridiculous that they don't at least add the option for a unlimited repeating beep etc. until you acknowlege the missed call/text. Every cell phone I've had since the 1990's has had that option. I understand it might use more battery, but give people the option.
Evidently Apple just can't imagine anyone ever being away from their iphone for more than 20 minutes (the longest time frame you can set it to remind you if you've missed a call, text, email).
This is by far the biggest annoyance of the Iphone for anyone that needs to know if they've missed calls and doesn't want to unlock their phone every 15 minutes to find out.
Request it as a feature, maybe someday apple will listen.
And Apple wonders why so many users jailbreak their phones.
