    Hi all,

    I have an iphone 4s with 6.1 installed. fresh installed. no jailbreak. i did put viber and whatsapp on it. I dont use 3g network. Only wifi. I cant get push notifications. I have it enabled in the settings->notifications.
    push mail is working. imessage isnt working, but its activated in the settings->messages.

    it was all working great on 5.1.1

    anyone that can help me with this? much appreciated.

    update: i did restart my router. still push isnt working.
    update: i installed ipusher app on appstore and it doesnt give me a push notification that says, push notifications work fine!

    fresh restore without backup should fix push notification

    I have the same problem with push notifications.
    However, I'm on an iPhone 4.
    I tried restoring it but to no avail, iPusher won't give me anything (while not being jailbroken nor hacktivated) :(.

    seems the same as me. does push notification work over 3g?
    even 3g enabled and wifi enabled will work. but only wifi enabled and 3g disabled wont work. agree?
    edit: I am also not hacktivated or jailbroken. fresh restore and setup as new phone.

    i went to a friend and push notifications are working on his wifi. i went to work. push notifications are working. it seems its a problem by my router. but it always worked on ios 4 and ios 5. is there a setting that i need to enable or disable or change on my router? my router is SpeedTouch 780.

    Apple Push Info

    You need to check and see if you are blocking port 5223. Here is a document from Apple http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3576 See item 5 at the bottom of document.

    Push works okay for me save for one app over the past few iOS updates and even updates to the application itself.

    The offender... Facebook.
