    Maybe I'm being thick but has anyone got push notifications working on an unlocked iPhone 2G using redsn0w?

    I've unlocked mine but can't see the option under Settings to enable them :confused:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You won't see the push notifications settings until you install a app that has it and through there enable it. Example, install AP Mobile News or Tap Tap Revenge 2. When you open either app it will ask you if you want to receive Push Notifications, hit ok. Then you can close the app and the Push settings would be there :)

    No push for me

    Push is not working for me. I'm jailbroken/unlocked on TMo on the iphone 2g. I've tried it in the new beejive, AP and TapTap and nothing.
    Is anyone else having push bugs on TMo?

    I have the same problem, but my phone was already activated (legit AT&T account)... I suppose redsn0w hacktivated anyway. Bah.

    Glad I found this thread - I've been pulling my hair out trying to get Push Notifications working on my Wife's unlocked 2G: I was explaining to her how Beejive will be much better than SMS and then it didn't work :D

    Same here phil same here LOL. but now i lost all the hair so i switched on my pubes!! JK

    Well now at least we know that it's a problem with the redsn0w and they're gonna fix it. So we'll wait dudes!.

    I thought iwas the only one with this problem, wherever i go and ask and read comments all happy about the push and i'd get a really sad face! i gotta admit iphone turned me into a geek!

    Thanks all. i guess we're gonna wait for the fix

    This is what I did. I had an old ATT sim card laying around my friend gave me when he sold his iphone to me. Its not activated. I put the ATT sim card in when I restored AND Jailbroke the phone. It kept telling me "Waiting for activation." Once I installed ultrasn0w and restarted I had my Tmobile Sim in and it said "iPhone has been activated." I was scared the ATT sim card got activated so i put it back and it said No service. Then I installed AIM and got Push Notification to work =)

    You have a 3G doesn't you?
    Because ultrasnow is for 3G
    the problem I think is only for 3g phones

    Use an att sim to get passed the connect to itunes screen instead of hacktivating it.

    You have to leave your sim card OUT when you do the unlock/jailbreaking. Then put it in when it is done.

    You CAN'T get push working on a 2G WITHOUT hactivated iPhone without a legit SIM, not possible. 3G, you can get push working fine
