    Hi all,

    I have only had my DHD for a few days, but am wondering if anyone can help me out. I did a search but didn't find any answers...

    1. When I receive an email into my Gmail account, the icon on my home screen says 1 email is unopened which is great, so I go tap on that and read the email and delete i needed. But then I also receive a notification on the top of the home screen saying a new email is there. It doesn't go away if I have already seen it.

    Is there a way of not having that notification on the top bar?

    2. Is there a way of turning off all notifications on that top bar? They just annoy me and don't really help out.


    Thanks in advance!

    1. That would mean there's more than 1 unread email
    2. There is a way somewhere and I can't find it at the moment, I'm sure someone else will chime in. Most of the time you turn off the notifications in the app itself (Facebook, Twitter, etc)

    I am pretty sure almost every thing that pops up on the notification bar can be turned off in the settings for that particular app. I just checked my gmail app and sure enough there was a button to turn off notifications.

    Hope that helps, you just have to look around in the apps settings.

    Eddy: It still sometimes has a notification even when there are no more un-read emails...
