    Getting Apps Notifications only on Wifi / not on Data Plan

    when I am on the data plan, notifications from any app stopped coming through and showing in the notification bar. and its not only facebook or facebook messenger, every app. weird enough Whatsapp works. however, once I connect to a wifi, all the notifications come through. I have tried almost everything. uninstall, install back, clear cache, clear data, reboot phone.

    I have the latest android version on my S4

    I remember restricting the background data for facebook and couple of applications, however, I set this setting back to original. and I am not sure if this was the reason. but if this was the case then when I set it back, everything should go back to normal.

    Anyone would know what is the reason? Any solutions?

    You may want to.... Then reboot, then re-enable, reboot again.

    Nothing working on data plan

    Is your APN setup correctly? Check with your service provider to get the apn details.

    Not sure if this is your problem,...
    but if you go into Settings and tap Data usage, on the top of that page is Mobil data with a box next to it.
    The Mobile data box needs to be checked to receive data when not connected to Wi-Fi.
    Hope that helps

    I think you should back-up your data then reset your phones factory settings and see whether it works.....
