    Iff there was no such thing as push notifications in apps or other parts of iDevices and had to do everything manual, Could you live without it?

    I need push notifications for certain apps like Paypal telling me payments have come in for my refunds, so I have to say no I absolutely need them...

    I could probably live without them, but they are handy for some things.

    I could live literally. But it's a feature that everyone expects and is used to. Like we could live without cars and go back to horses. But why?

    No only I can live w/out push notifications, I turned them ALL off (it's saves on battery-life anyway). But what irks me most about 99.9% of apps is that they "push" by default, so you have to go to Settings >> Notification Center >> manually click on each app and flick to off all types of notifications (badge, sounds, showing in notification center, show on lock screen). It's insane that by default apps push.

    Well if they didn't exist, i'd have to live without them and I guess I would adapt.

    At the moment though, for my business email account, I need instant and immediate notification of any incoming emails and Push is vital for that.

    I could but it'd certainly make mess less productive

    I'm pretty sure I could. I'd sure miss it for texts but I have them off now for the majority of my social apps as it stands now anyway!

    I could but wouldn't want to.
    It saves me a lot from opening up the app especially Twitter.
    Good Luck

    I have everything set manually except for my weather apps for obvious reasons. Otherwise I do just fine without push set up for any of my apps.

    I can live without push notifications. I generally have my device on silent, so I am only privy to any notifications if I'm looking at my phone.

    With the advantage of having lived with PUSH, I can't imagine what it would be like without it - as my phone is a business phone, it would be very awkward and frustrating not having PUSH...

    Smart phones wouldn't be quite so smart and it would be like reverting to dial-up internet connections in the pre-broadband "always connected" era.
