New to DROID - Can I turn off Notifications
Hey guys! So I just set up my Atrix after 3 years on the iPhone and I'm definitely becoming a fan, however I'm having a little trouble with notifications.
1 - Call me crazy, but I really HATE push notifications, especially with things like Facebook and LinkedIn. Is there any way to turn these notifications off? I managed to turn off the email notifications, but I still get a message every time someone posts to my wall or invites me to an event. Is my only option to change the battery mode so that data turns off after 15 minutes?
2 - any way to get a pop up or larger notification for texts or to customize the notifications so that a text message makes a different sound than an email or a facebook ping? I've seen notes about changing the LED light for different notifications, but not the sound.
3 - I'm getting double email notifications - one for my gmail that's hooked up through the Email app and one for Gmail through gmail. Interestingly, the Email app does not use push (since I said not to and that I want to manually sync) but the Gmail app does.
Basically, any help I can get towards specifying notifications/limiting notifications would help greatly. I'm one of those people who doesn't like their phone beeping all the time.
