    My iPhone 4's push notifications have stopped coming through. This happened about 2 weeks ago.

    I've tried turning Notifications Off then On, and I've tried a soft reset of the device, no luck.

    I downloaded an app that purports to test push notifications, and it reported that all was ok.

    I have 4.2.1, jailbroken with Greenpois0n, but I don't think this is the issue because they worked fine for weeks after doing the GP jailbreak on 4.2.1. I haven't actually done much at all with my phone in recent weeks, I've mostly being playing with my iPad (which is also jailbroken on 4.2.1, and Notifications work fine).

    UPDATE: I just remembered, my iPhone 4 was replaced by Apple 2 weeks ago under warranty (faulty home button). Could the new handset be something to do with it?

    I think push notifications are linked to the device so it can cause problems when you get a new iphone. The pushmail app has a way of registering the device in the settings and you do this to set up the new phone. I remember when I sold my 3GS to my dad, he also uses Pushmail and he started getting my push alerts even though the phone had been through a complete restore, removing all my data!

    I can't really help with how you reset the other apps. I only use pushmail
