I have all notifications on. I have deleted and reinstalled the app and I only get push notifications for comments. When I get emails I do not get push notifications. I have removed in reinstalled the app etc. I only use badges. Any ideas?

I'm not sure why you keep re-installing the app. Clearly Facebook is having issues with their notification server for the iPhone app.

I tried it once because some people have no issues.

on the actual website have you been into the settings there to make sure you have all notifications turned on? I think that if they are not turned on there they will not come through regardless of the setup on the iPhone.

I think its a well known issue that the facbook push system is horrendous right now, very unreliable. Give them time and few updates to hopefully get their act together.

I have noticed that the FB app on my iPod Touch is pretty unreliable when it comes to push. Meanwhile my BlackBerry gets nearly instant push notification of things I have set to send notifications on. Kind've sad because overall the iPhone/iPod Touch FB app is a lot better than the BlackBerry one except for push.

Doesn't work well for me. I get emails fine, so whatever. I imagine that after a few more updates they will be just fine.

I can only imagine how many billions of push notifications their poor server(s) have to handle each day.

after a few days of push from facebook i decided to stop using it. the emails are enough. and the battery reduction from regular push kinda puts a downer on it imo.

Good point. Must be difficult. Bet it's more like billions per hour!!

I'm not getting all of them via SMS on verizon either. It's stunk for the last month - and sometimes posts i send that way take HOURS.

I hadn't decided if it was FB or Verizon having the issues.... I haven't updated the FB app yet, so i haven't tried the Push to see if what i get/don't matches the SMS issues i'm having.

That might be interesting.....

Seems mostly ok to me, does drop the odd notification though. Only thing that annoys me is no sound when a message is pushed through, just a message on screen which is useless if the phones in your pocket...
