Not getting mail and app update alerts
Hello, just seeing if you guys can help me.
My 3gs isn't telling me when I receive new email or when the app store has a update for an app. Normally you get the alert sound and the red bubble showing the # of emails, and this isn't happening.
Push is turned on and set to 30 min, and i'm using a yahoo email account.
If i go into mail it then checks for mail, and if i go into the app store it shows if i have an update. It just isn't doing it on its own.
Text alerts work normally. What gives guys?
Thanks for any help.

Well for e-mail, do you have push or fetch set in your settings? If fetch is off, it won't work unless you go into the actual app. Push has to be enabled, then it will push it to your phone (given you have mobileme or yahoo or another supported push mail client)
As far as the app store, as far as I know the app store is not push notification enabled, so in order to see if you have updates, yes, you'll have to open the app store application.
