    mine is set to by time and is as follows

    phone: alerts
    message: banners
    mail: banners
    facebook: sounds, banners
    calendar: alerts
    reminders: alerts
    craigsPro+: sounds, banners
    ebay: sounds banners
    groupon: sounds banners


    all have badges turned off because i don't need to be notified in two locations. also if you go into some apps through the icon the notification doesn't automatically clear

    I like badges for some things like the ATT app, because I might initially dismiss the notification, but the badge reminds me 'hey, you haven't actually paid your bill yet.'

    well thats what the notification center is for. you just pull it down and it shows you outstanding alerts. thats why i turned off badges. cuz i have badges on icons on different screens or in folders or something. and i don't know what app in the folder its for. so i just pull down the notification center and it lists my stuff

    i don't know that i like having the reminders in the notification center. its not as much a notification as a pending item. if i have an alert set to pop up i dont need to see it for 3 days before its due

    when you say widget do you mean the notification center? like you took all your apps out of the notification center?

    you know that doesn't turn off push notification right? it just doesn't show up in the list.

    dude thats one of the most hyped features of iOS 5

    Most of my apps are in the Notification Center and listed as banner. Had enough of alerts in iOS4.

    i have calls, calendar, and reminders just because those are things that i want to interrupt me. if i have an appointment i forgot about and a banner comes across the screen and disappears i might not notice it. if it pops up and says i have somewhere i have to be and i have to click to close it out i'll definitely remember and not miss it

    do you have badges turned on or off on your notifications?

    As organized:
    - SBSettings Widget
    - App Switcher Widget
    - Weather Widget
    - All other app notifications (stock apps like mail messages & phone are first in priority)

    Outside of Notification Center, all notifications are set as Banner (which I absolutely love!!)

    I also set it up where when I double press the home button, it opens notification center, which means i have instant access to not only the app switcher thanks to its widget, but also sbsettings & everything else.

    Its extremely convenient because now I can swipe down from the screen to bring it up as well. Its so much better & I recommend it to everyone!

    I had the music player widget too, but it doesnt look proper atm.

    EDIT:
    Can someone get the direct image tag & post it for me? I cant do it correctly on the phone.

    since you have all your apps in the notification center do you also have badges turned off? or are they still on?
