    I'm wondering why I don't ever get phone notifications from the facebook app, twitter app, words with friends, or any other app that you should get notifications from, Gmail being the only exception.

    On facebook, my notifications in the app itself only even show up if I actually open the facebook app and then let it refresh.

    I have notifications turned on in all these apps, yet I never get any. If anyone knows anything I'd be grateful.

    The only notification I've ever gotten from the facebook app is when someone sends me a message in Facebook.

    Yeah. I've gotten a message notification once or twice for a facebook message, but nothing else. Wish I could get more though...

    You might check your account settings in facebook and see if there are options there to send an email for the things you'd like to get notified on.

    Oh well I get emails all the time, I was just hoping there was a way to get notification much like the iphone has.

    I don't use those apps, but I used to use Words With Friends and it notified without issue.

    A lot of things could cause this. Make sure:

    phone settings > battery & data manager > battery mode > performance mode

    phone settings > battery & data manager > data saver > OFF

    phone settings > battery & data manager > data delivery > background data > CHECKED

    phone settings > battery & data manager > data delivery > data enabled > CHECKED

    phone settings > battery & data manager > data delivery > social applications > sync over wifi only > UNCHECKED

    phone settings > battery & data manager > data delivery > social applications > data delivery frequency > automatic (push)

    I don't think the facebook app has the ability. I've had all these settings at various times and never received the alerts.

    Does it not have the ability or is it just on the droid3? Because like I said I don't get words with friends notifications either. And I'm pretty sure the Droid 2 got facebook notifications other than just new messages.

    Have you set all of the settings that I listed? Do you have Juice Defender or auto task killer or antivirus or security software or something funky installed?

    I did. All those settings were set and still nothing. I had juice defender but I don't now.

    Here's something to try. Long-press to add a widget to one of your home screens. You need a blank space 1 high that goes all the way across the screen.

    long-press > widget > Power Control

    This will put the power control widget on your screen. Make sure that the two arrows in a circle are turned on. (Second to last icon.) You can then delete the widget.

    As I mentioned earlier I don't use any of the apps that you listed so there's a possibility that the apps don't support push on the Droid 3 (although, that seems very odd).

    WIFI router firewall could be a culprit. The apps don't happen to update on 3G do they?
