New iPhone 4 User, Questions Regarding Push Notifications
Sorry if this is in the wrong section, MOD's feel free to move it.
So, as the title says, I'm about 3 days into my iPhone 4 and I've been loving every minute of it. I started using Echofon and the Twitter app and was receiving notifications instantly. Then, I decided to jailbreak it, everything was still fine. I wanted to keep my phone legitimate so I restored my phone to normal. Since then I haven't been receiving any notifications on Echofon, but I'd receive notifications on the Twitter for iPhone app. Facebook is on and off with the notifications, and I don't receive any with email, but the games I play notify me instantly. Is this an issue with iOS 4.3.3, or was it because I jailbroke it? Oh, and in case you're wondering, all my Push Notification settings are enabled.
Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated as this issue is driving me crazy!

Push notifications are a sensitive flower! Try switching the individual notifications off, rebooting the phone, then turning them back on and again reboot.
Facebook however, is rubbish at them even when they work. Try an app called Boxcar to manage them all!

Jailbreaking didn't cause the issue though, once you restored it, the phone is basically just a stock iPhone again, with no indication that it was ever JB'ed in the past...it doesn't hold back information like that, so it wouldn't effect the phone in the future.
Deleting and reinstalling the apps you're having issues with many times completely resolves these kinds of issues too...but as far as facebook goes, you'll learn that no matter what phone you're using, that app is just a "tough love" scenario, as its basically one of the most poorly written apps out there for one of the most successful and popular THINGS on the internet, lol...

Like everyone else said though, Facebook's notifications are very very bad in any case. I just turned them off and have email alerts instead for Facebook.
