    google talk is not notifying me when i get a new message i just look and its there. i have notifications enabled in settings on talk. does the same thing on my wifes incredible. my droid did not have this problem. can anyone else confirm they have the same problem or a solution for it. i much prefer realtime chat over sms texting.

    I thought that was happening to me as well, but just passed it off as "I didn't feel the weak vibrate". Guess I wasn't crazy after all.

    Are you getting an icon up in the notifications bar?

    Make sure you check your general notification sounds/volume too.

    Edit: just to clarify my notifications do work with gtalk. It vibrates, I hear the tone, and the LED light flashes if it's asleep. I do have another problem with it though, where when I am signed into and using chat in Gmail on a computer, some of the chats randomly show up on my phone too, but unpredictably. Outside of that, it's working fine for me.

    Yeah my notifications definitely work. All of them.

    Menu--->Settings--->Accounts & Sync: Do you have Background data and Auto-sync turned on?

    Do you have Gtalk set to auto-login?

    You wouldn't happen to have had a gtalk session open on a computer somewhere would you?

    When I am logged into gtalk on a computer (and "online") I don't USUALLY get notifications. I'm assuming this is intentional and I like it that way.

    I actually am trying to figure out why I SOMETIMES still get the gtalk notifications on my phone even though I am actively chatting on my computer.

    For me, I'd get all of the notifications (vibration, notification bar..) for Google Talk EXCEPT for the LED light. The LED light works for everything else though. Is there some setting just for the LED light?
