    I have just passed on a Motorola MOTO G to a friend who has a PAYG sim and is on a budget. To save large charges data is switched off. With WiFi also off, a Yahoo email notifcation arrived on the phone... how is this possible if data and WiFi are both off? Does it arrive as a text message and get converted to a notification Or...?

    I suppose that would help, thanks, but she still wants to receive texts and calls.

    Yahoo has a feature whereby they can send an SMS to alert you.

    I turned it off a long time ago. Look at her Yahoo settings to be sure that is turned off.
