Blinking light SMS notification

I’ve noticed, when an SMS comes in a small light at the top of the phone starts blinking, and continues blinking until the message has been read. I’d prefer to be not reminded of SMS in this way. How can I turn this blinking feature off?

Go to the app Messaging, go to Settings, go to Notifications, unmark Message notifications

How to I get to Messaging settings? When I click on Messaging, I get a list of my previous messages. In the bottom there are buttons for new message and for search. I can’t figure out how to get to settings from here.

Go to the app Messaging, then tap far left below on your phone (below the screen). There you find System settings.
