I'm currently using an iPhone 4 (iOS 4.3.3) and push notifications have stopped working. The only app that seems to still be pushing is TextPlus. In my case Facebook, Scrabble, Gowalla and Twitter have all stopped working.

 

Here is what I have already tried:

  1. Restored my iPhone
  2. General --> Reset --> Reset All Settings

 

None of these things worked. Are there any suggestions that will definitively help fix this issue? I'm at a loss.

 

Thanks

iPhone 4, iOS 4.3.2

    Once the push notifications get corrupted there's only one fix that has worked for me so far.

    Restore firmware and do not restore any backups. Choose new device in iTunes, seems like the problem comes back when restoring previous backups

    Try this: Go to Settings - Wifi... then in DNS field write the following: 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4

    Notifications don't always work smoothly for me. Some apps are better than others about it. That leads me to believe it's a problem with the coding done by the app developer.

     

    Mail, SMS, Phone, Calender, etc. always work perfectly.

     

    Facebook works about 80% of the time, Justin.tv works about 10% of the time. Google+ never notifys me.

    You need to turn on individual notifications under Settings > Facebook > Push Notifications, BUT (and this is a big and confusing BUT) you also need to turn on global push settings under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendards > Fetch New Data (and change the Push slider to 'on').  This doesn't sound like it makes sense, but I guess that the push slider under 'Mail, Contacts, Calendars' is actually for ALL push notifications on iPhone, and not just Mail, Contacts and Calendar apps!
