    So after 3 days, I think I might switch to iPhone - I can't get used to this design and the notifications (or lack of)

    Any advice on staying with it?

    Only advice is to wait (Read that a notifications hub (or whatever you want to call it) was coming in 2013 when they update the OS).... or add whatever apps that your notifications to the start page. most apps display a number on the top right when you have new notifications.

    If you provide us with a bit more information maybe we can suggest a few things. Information such as which notifications you feel are lacking would help? One of the great things about this design is that all the information that is important to you can be pinned to your home screen and is available instantly.

    Like I said above, I really want a good Twitter app - there is nothing I have found (even paid apps) that will notify me each time I get a message or mention. I come from an iPhone family and was looking for a change, but maybe I should stick with what I know haha :(

    I tried it - it doesn't notify me 90% of the time - only once every 20 messages or so.

    Did you look at Gleek? It will give you notifications on mentions and messages. Gleek will also pin a tile to your start screen that will allo you to go directly to Retweets of you. It is a pretty amazing Twitter client.

    You can go back to the iphone and do what you have been doing since about 2007 and will be doing for the next couple of years. Or you can stay with Windows phone and look forward to some innovative and creative technology in the future. How about the People Hub that gives you all the latest FB/Twitter/Linkin/etc updates in one place. Does IPhone have that? How about pinning individual people's tiles to your start screen so you will see what they are up? Give it a little more time.

    it seems like every day there's these kinds of posts about people not liking something and want others feedback in an effort to try to convince them to stay with their device. in the end it is only you that can make the decision to stay or go. other people telling you to stay because they dont have a problem it doesnt change the fact that you may still have a problem with it.

    Windows Phone is very efficient, and you may grow to love it. But it does have a learning curve if you are used to different data management philosophies.

    Here is how you can get your Twitter notifications.

    Do you have your Twitter linked to your Microsoft Account?

    If not, go into your email on your regular desktop computer and go to the upper right hand corner and click on your name.
    Then choose Edit Profile
    Choose Add Accounts

    Add your Twitter Account.

    Doing this will give you an alert, by sending you a text message.

    horrible advice. No 4g lte and slower than s3 in practical use with a bad camera? No thanks.

    I don't mean to sound short, but if a twitter app is enough to make you give up an entire operating system, well, let's just say we have differing opinions on priorities. I just can't believe how many people put social networking as their #1.

    I agree, I also wonder if the blackberry torch did the notifications that she is looking for?

    Really?

    Hmm... I have no idea why you're not getting notifications. I get notifications for every Tweet mention, direct message, Facebook wall post, and Facebook reply.

    This is the same MS Account that's linked to your phone, correct?

    I am actually trying to set this up myself. So this is actually supposed to alert me in the form of a text (SMS)? I seem to have both facebook and twitter linked (when I click either one it takes me directly to my FB or Twitter, respectively, and it's logged in) but I also don't seem to get a an SMS update?
