    So it seems that if you restore apps from a backup to your iPhone, those apps no longer send notifications no matter what your notification settings are set to. In order to fix this I had to restore my iPhone from a fresh user account so that it would install the OS only, then jailbreak and unlock. It was a bit of a pain, but it worked. Now I get notifications from Facebook etc again.

    At first I was curious about this problem as I haven't seen or heard of it before. But I read further...

    And the answer hit me.

    Yes, you did correct. Restoring as new put back the original OS which enabled the software to work properly as written. But jailbreaking it and unlocking it (can you unlock a 4 or 4S?) might also bring back the same problem you had in the beginning. Keep us updated.
