    I have done a search but didn't find a solution.

    I'm not receiving any notifications for hotmail, yahoo or Facebook. I do have notifications turned on for all of those.

    For example it acts like it's not checking my hotmail every 15 min like I have it set because I'll go to my hotmail acct and it will show no new e-mails but automatically checks for new e-mails then it will show one that was a few hours old.

    Facebook and yahoo does the same thing. BTW, I do not have wifi service here at work so its using the 3G service.

    Thanks for all the help!

    Mine is doing the same thing. I used to get notifications everytime someone wrote on my wall on facebook. It even used to show a facebook icon on my status bar.

    Kinda like the Facebook widget. It works once in a while and then stops for a few days.

    Is there any way to get the notifications to turn on? When I first got my phone I got notifications for hotmail, yahoo and facebook but not now. The only notifications I'm getting now id for gmail. I have the notifications turned on for all those but it's still not working.

    Any ideas?

    I think the Taskiller app was blocking the notifications somehow. I stopped the taskiller app and now I'm getting all my notifications again....email (hotmail), twitter, etc. With taskiller running I was getting the gmail notifications but not the others. I'm not sure if the facebook notification is working now since nobody has commented on my pge today but I think this a fix!

    WOOOOHOOOO!

    I am having this same issue. My Gmail is not even updating at this point. Would this be reason for me to return the phone?? If anyone can advise me how to fix this I would really appreciate it!

    Sometimes I get notifications, sometimes I don't. It's hit or miss.

    This is the answer

    I removed the task killer I installed powered off my phone then turned it back on notifications from everything every time now 3rd party task killers are blocking the refresh / download process to save battery power and in turn blocking our wonderfully important business emails.

    USE THE DRIOD's PROCESS KILLER AND YOU'LL Eliminate this issue.

    I'm not getting notifications...everything is checked to sync -- when I click on synch calendar -- the synch "yin yang progress cycle thing" doesn't go away like the other sync (mail, contacts) -- so?? gliche? blocking from sending notifications?

    this is really annoying -- this should work -- $559 phone and all this whizbang software and simple things like this don't work.

    Yes under settings, applications, processes this should give you the option to kill off anything running I was using Advanced Task killer but that blocked my notifications which i dearly need for work emails, and it's nice to have myspace and facebook notifications without a 3rd party task killer they are once again working correctly

    Yep, I can confirm that as well. I never got Facebook notification until now...that's because I uninstalled Advanced Task Killer afer reading some heated discussion in Android forums and majority of the discussion says ATK is not need for Android but most suggested to use Task Manager instead. Now I got Facebook notification now...sweet!
