Re: issue with 'log into itunes for push notifications' message
I have the same problem and I've done many of the suggested solutions on several forums, but they do not work. I have ios 6.1.4 and often have backed up my iPhone, but I do not want to accidentally get an ios 7 software accidentally loaded since you can not go back. Please let me know if backing it up restored your iPhone to the NON-ios 7 version. Somewhere else on this forum, there was a suggestion to six it via a different method, but that involved restoring it to ios7, which I do not want with all the problems, and I prefer the ios 6 graphics). Here it is pasted, should you want to know:
'After upgrading to iOS 7 on any of the iDevices, some users experienced loss of Push capability.
It reflected mostly in users trying to use iMessage and FaceTime and in return, receiving an annoying popup message that reads: "Connect to iTunes to Use Push Notifications"
The sad truth is that all Push capability is lost. No Exchange push, no WhatsApp push, no Game Center push (I wonder if that bothers anyone...)
So here I offer the solution to you world. Enjoy and remember that the tool was provided by the great developers of RedSn0w.
Since it's not a beta anymore - anyone can use this solution.
1.Download RedSn0w from the following links:
Mac OSx: Click here [ nickhleviine#1M, let me paste the link since it got lost in my pasting this: https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1 ]
Windows: Click here [ nickhleviine#1M, https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1 ]
2.Connect your iDevice to the computer with the USB cable
4.Click on "Extras"
5.Click on "Even More"
6.Click on "Deactivate"
7.Now your iDevice is deactivated and should show an activation screen
8.Open iTunes on your computer
9.iTunes should detect that the iDevice is connected and try to activate it
10.If all is good and apple sends the activation tickets, your iDevice goes back to normal, only this time - with Push Capability.'
