    This have been a pet peeve of mine, why is there no notification for email like there is for texts. Have IOS 5 fixed this at all? I know there is the email sound but it would be nice for a visual cue if the phone is on silent.

    Yes. Email is part of notifications now. It's been working great on my phone with ios5.

    yea, but it's not enabled by default, you have to turn this on in the notification center first

    Right. It's off by default and annoying if you turn it on, assuming you get a load of emails.

    Yeah it's one of the main things i'm looking forward to.

    ----------

    Why is it annoying? I get alot of e-mails each day with the alerts I get so i can't wait for it to appear in the notifications center.

    bet it will hurt battery life though having it to push tho?

    I'm talking more about the lock screen notifications. With it turned on, I might have 30 email notifications and a missed call. Never saw the missed call.

    Oh I see

    Thought there was just a limit of 10 shown in the lock screen?

    You can have it show just the last 5 emails.

    Yep. Understood.

    It just bugged me. :)

    I like text, missed calls, voicemails, etc. on my lock screen.

    As mentioned, you can set the number of a particular notification that will show up in Notification center. I usually keep it to 5 each. You can also manually sort the notification center so calls are on top (or whatever you deem most important)

    well no more than fetch really....

    exactly this, plus the lock screen notifications are scrollable
