    This might sound crazy, but try this.
    Turn on all notifications for your apps.
    Then reset your network settings.
    Also try enabling "Push" in Mail

    at the moment, yes. but i jailbroke it after the problem started. even with a clean restore with 1 3rd party app notifications dont work. and as i mentioned, a DFU restore didnt even fix it

    Zaniak. Try this. Go to wifi. Find your wifi name. Go to DNS. Copy the code. Save it. Replace it with 8.8.8.8

    The third party app is anything that uses notifications. Facebook, twitter etc. And I will try jtre's idea now.

    Nope. Didn't work. This is a weird problem isn't it?

    Try going to an Apple store, asking them what the deal is. I had mine since 2010. But it only happen once
