Push Notifications

PostPosted by phillpark » Sat Nov 19, 2016 10:17 pm

Hi all, sorry I've not been on here for ages (long story). I'll try and make more regular appearances in the future lol.

I'm having problems with push notifications on my Samsung S6. All of a sudden I don't seem to be getting them: I'm not being notified about WhatsApp's being delivered, Ebay auctions ending, even annoying offers from the Boohoo app, and emails too (both Outlook & gmail).

If I manually open these programmes the notification comes through. The second I connect to WiFi the notifications come through, but when on 4G etc they are sporadic at best.

I tried running a push notification tester app and all was OK when on WiFi, but when on cellular the option "register for push notifications" hadn't got a tick next to it.

I've mooched around my settings but can't find anything obvious. Any suggestions?

I can only guess it's some kind of data save restriction on the network?

Makes sense if it goes back to normal then.

Cheers Rich. It's not done it before when I run low on data, but we'll see what happens.

Phil,

Check the battery optimisation in settings and check that it isn't restricting background notifications/data
