Samsung Galaxy S :: How To Receiving Push Notifications For Facebook On SGS?
Oct 29, 2010
Been lurking all over google, and the forums but to no avail. Is there solutions to receiving push notifications for facebook on SGS? I've set my settings to receive notifications, but so far I've set my notifications to come to my email. I've heard from someone that google and facebook are having some sort of differences. Anyone have any solutions?
I just got the Samsung Captivate 3 days ago and I love it. I have been doing research trying to figure out all the little ins and outs to this phone. There are a few things that im stop not 100% clear about and would like for you guys to shed some light on this situation for me.
1. What is Launcher Pro and how exactly is it used.
2. Is there anyway to get push notifications with emails and facebook. Im always having to check my email to see if I have any.
3. What happens when I fill up all 7 pages with apps? Will I not be able to download anymore?
That's pretty much all I want to know. I have no constructive input (save for that the release of the SDK may herald a new era of notifications for facebook :P), but just wanted to complain. That is all.
For awhile, my Facebook push notifications were working just fine until I had updated to Jelly Bean. I tried everything.. to clearing cache, data, uninstalling, and even the BlackBerry trick again (worked once before) and couldn't for the life of me figure out why they weren't working anymore. I thought maybe it was Facebook clashing with JB. I read everywhere and found out some people had no issues and some had some where every push notifications didn't work and some just Facebook.
Well I spend a day or so trying to figure it out and finally found a new, simple fix.
1) Open the Facebook app. 2) Tap on menu button on the top left 3) Account > Account Settings 4) Apps and Websites 5) Clear out Facebook related apps (Like Friendcaster or HTC Sense) 6) Clear data on the Facebook app and launch app
I noticed some off the apps in there have a push notification toggle button and I believe it was messing up the push notification system of there was to many to keep up with.
Once I spent 20 mins clearing those apps out, I cleared data and started the app notifications started working again. I didn't know it worked until someone wrote on my wall and I was shocked to see a notification!
I was wandering if anybody could help me with the email notification problem im currently having. Iphones and blackberrys all give you a notification when you receive a new email or a new facebook message. The galaxy s does nothing when you receive a new mail. In settings you can select a ringtone, set it to vibrate when you receive a message. But nothing happens. The only way to find out if there any new messages is by clicking on the email app ( in which i am using hotmail).
When I do work for a particular customer of mine sends he me a WAP push message. This contains a URL link to the details of the job I'm carrying out for him so that I can update his system with the job progress without having to ring him up, etc.
The problem is since I got my Tattoo I've not been able to receive these messages from him and can't figure out why. SMS & MMS works fine and so I Can't figure out why these particular types of messages don't get to me.
I installed the new version of ADWLauncher from the marketplace a few days ago. I have problems with the Galaxy shutting down the launcher while I'm in a game or app. I have to wait about 15 secs for it to auto-reload after hitting the home button. Is there anyway I can just push ADWLauncher 1.0 to the phone (an APK) or am I stuck with the Market version?
So when push email is enabled (for my exchange work email only) my battery drains 10% every hour, even if i don't touch the phone it drains 10% Is this normal?
Looking at my screen, the 3G icon in the notification bar is constanlty changing between a 3G and H and the arrows are lighting up all the time. I don't receive to many emails (between 1 and 5 an hour)
I have recently flashed to JM5 and have only had that problem since comming to0 JM5. I have tried to different tricks for restting the battery stats and calabrating the battery but nothing really works.
I have a problem with receiving emails. I can't get push to work so set it to check every 5 minutes. It worked for a day then stopped. I changed It to 10 minutes and it worked again but not for long. It's a hotmail account and all settings are correct Im sure.
I have recently bought the Samsung Galaxy s2 SGH-i727. I used to have a Samsung Galaxy s1. I have my 3G SIM in my Galaxy s2 now and its a 4G phone...will that affect it? Plus i have tried a million different APNs to see if that would work, and it hasnt. Im able to send/recieve text messages, but i cant get MMS. I also use AT&T GoPhone as my carrier, but i didnt have this problem with my S1...
I'm not receiving either the notification on the upper left of the screen, or the ringtone. Notifications and the ringtones are setup properly, as I know. The only time I see that there's an update, is when that application is actually opened. This unit is set to update at the minimum.
I've seen such posts on the site earlier, however never found a solution to this problem.
I'm able to send messages from my Google Talk on Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.1 update 1.
However, I'm not receiving any messages at all from anyone. This is making me feel horribly disabled.
Has anyone found any solution to this problem?
I tried several things like restarting the phone, clearing Google talk service and app cache, signing out and back in, etc. I don't want to reset the phone again and loose all my current setup. I've read some posts that reset also doesnt work.
I bought a SAMSUNG Galaxy phone and had set up my official mail (yahoo business mail) under E-Mail settings. And I was receiving mails for a week. Now for the last 3 days, no mails are downlaoding and when I click Email, it only shows 'Load More Messages', but on clicking nothing happens. I am think of resetting it, but dont know how to do it. I tried holding the Email and drag it to the Trash, it moves to trash, but reappears. I tried to delete the Yahoo Biz Mail credentials I had given, so as to recreate, but after clearing each field, there is no way you can save it.
I own a Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket on AT&T's GO Phone network and I haven't been able to receive confirmation texts from apps and businesses that require phone number verification (Uber, Facebook, Twitter, ect.) Even services like ChaCha can't get through to me. Is there a setting I can turn off to allow these messages to come through?
I have a timetable app and would like the app to send a notifications at 9;00am for example saying i have english. How can i send push notifications to my phone and specific dates and times for edit text boxes.
I just got the Epic 4G and I'm confused about how to make my facebook notifications show up AND how can I add a hotmail account and see that I received a new email? I'm confused! I have gmail but the icon won't show how many emails--only on the top left..
I have the Sprint Hero, and I know that GTalk and Gmail do push. But what about all the other apps out there? Mainly IM apps. I realize how difficult it would be for a dev to utilize push, but what about a company like AIM that already has push notifications for the iPhone AIM app? The official AIM app was recently released, and I am dissapointed to see that it has no push notifications. That means, leaving it on in the background keeps the phone awake. I would really like to be able to leave my AIM on in the background without having to worry about my phone battery draining...
any Android device I had had never really has had good push notifications. Basically, it is hit or miss, mostly a miss. Various apps I never seem to get notifications, such as the eBay app. Notifications are enabled and it seems like they only work if I am actually in the app, but if it is not open, no notifications. Or same with Words with Friends, it pretty much never sends me a notification and when it does, it could take 30 minutes for it to show up while my iPhone would show up immediately. Even when using the Lumia 920 for a few weeks, the notifications came through with out delay.
I have Samsung Galaxy S handset since last two week. Earlier I have Nokia E63. I am new for android based phone. Just wanted to know that when a new mail received why I cant get a notification just like Nokia E63? All my gmail account working properly but no notification recd. on my hotmail and yahoomail account. Is there any problem in setting? All setting I have been checked. I have WiFi at my home. Earlier when I entered home automatically mail notification recd. on Nokia E63.
I've noticed that I'm not receiving notifications that apps I've downloaded from the Android Market have available updates. The user manual shows a little icon of an Android shopping bag in the 'Status Bar - Notification Icons' section (page 7), so I think something's wrong.For example, just today I went into the Android Market to download a new app and upon checking 'My Downloads', I noticed seven apps that had updates available. At least four of these apps had been opened and used within the last hour, and still nothing was mentioned about the update. Is anyone else noticing the same?
Right, I'm fairly certain my GMail isn't using push to notify me of new emails arriving as I have just gone into GMail and hit the refresh button and it's fired out 3 new emails from throughout the day.I need to manually set push notifications or should it happen automatically?
I got a new HTC Incredible, my first smartphone. I'm really happy with it, but I've got this annoying Google Voice problem.
I've been using Google Voice for a few months, and I was excited to learn that Google Voice on Android now had push notifications (aka Inbox synchronization). I read that version 0.3.2 added this, and all should be well. I downloaded the Google Voice app yesterday (0.3.2), and Inbox synchronization is on, but I've had delays of about 5 minutes with every message until the phone beeps. Could anyone shed some light on this? I've got all mobile data stuff on, I'm connected to wifi, and it's even plugged into the wall charger charging.
For some reason on my Nexus 5 running Liquidsmooth AOSP, I can not receive any GCM push notifications. My push notifications work fine on stock. This is happening for apps like instagram, twitter, snapchat, etc. It only appears to happen when my phone in deep sleep, when the screen is off for roughly 5+ minutes. I have tried PNF, different gapps, different kernels. Also on a clean install of course.
I understand that the sync switch in the power control widget has effect only on google services (email, calendar, tasks, browser, play books, etc.) while it has no effect on facebook/twitter/whatsapp push notifications: for the latter I need to enable/disable inside the apps. Correct?
If that's so, I am looking for an tasker-like app that allows me the following:
every time I push a dedicated icon on the homescreen or I am connected to the home wifi, disable google sync, disable facebook/twitter push notifications and enable whatsapp notifications
Would that be possible? I understand that tasker (and other similar apps) cannot do the facebook/twitter/whatsapp part. correct?
