Default Galaxy S3 Sync Settings

Quick question,

I cannot receive Twitter notifications on my S3. Having gone into the app settings I could see that Twitter sync was switched off, however, I couldn't change this. Another post I saw suggested altering the android master sync in accounts and sync, the only problem is, I can't find it.

My Facebook, Instagram etc notifications all work. The only app I am having trouble with is Twitter.

Please advise on this issue and the master sync mystery...

Many thanks

It would be helpful to know what version of Android your on.

4.0.4 and above you should have an icon at the top of your screen.

To elaborate, with your screen active and unlocked, tap where you see your signal strength and drag your finger down to reveal the notifications screen.

You should see a series of buttons, some may be on (lit green) or off (grey) you can use your finger to swipe left or right to see more buttons. The button you need is the circle made of two arrows that says "sync" when that is lit green, the "master sync" as you call it, is on.

It is worth noting that in Android 4.1.2 you can now customise which icons appear on the notification screen. Just goto settings > display > notification panel and long press icons from the top panel to bottom to remove them, or the bottom to top to add them. Once the top panel has what you need, long press each to arrange in an order you desire.

Apologies for my lack of information provided. I am familiar with the notifications bar. I am using 4.1.2. Come to think of it I remember the sync button from my old Galaxy S, but I wasn't aware that with this particular version of android you could change which options are on the notifications bar.

I have made the changes you suggested, and it now works.

Thanks very much.

I'm sorry but I am on 4.1.2 on a galaxy s3 and I am not seeing the "notification panel" in display settings. I'd like to rearrange and play with the icons I have on my notification screen so if I could get some help doing that it would be great.

It should be in Settings> Display> Notification Panel but i think some of the North American carriers didnt give that option in their 4.1.2 update
