    Hey everyone, I have a quick question for all you note 2 users that are using GMail as your main email app.

    When you receive a new email while you're using your phone, does it tell you the sender's name AND SUBJECT TEXT, BODY TEXT?
    I'm more concerned about the subject text/body text because when I receive a new email all I see is who it is from. Is this the default? Can subject text/body text be enabled/disabled somewhere? I wonder if I hit something I shouldn't have on accident.

    My current notification settings for my account are:

    Email notifications CHECKED
    Ringtone (enabled)
    Vibrate (always)
    Notify once CHECKED

    Thanks for all the help!

    Just sent myself an email from my work, and on my phone in the notification bar it shows name, subject and body of the text.

    Looks like when I get more then 1 email at the same time it only shows name/subject and takes out the body of the email.

    Alright thanks for the update. I've been searching every nook and cranny of menu settings for android and gmail but not sure what I might've selected or unselected.
