Having Problems with iPhone Push feature?

Today I faced a problem on my iPhone where I couldn’t get push notifications to work using Go and STC routers. I have finally found a fix. It turned out to be a DNS problem and all you have to do is to set the DNS on your iPhone.

I hope this will be useful to anyone having this problem.

So first of all we need to click Settings.

iPhone Settings 1

Click Wi-Fi.

iPhone 2

Click on the blue arrow next to the Wi-Fi access point name. In the DNS option we need to clear the value and enter: then go back to Settings and click the home button.

iPhone 3

Push notifications should be working by now.


Push notifications can be used to notify you with any new messages on IM messengers, Mail, and a lot of other apps.

Note: if you need to revert at any time all you need to do is delete everything in the DNS field.

Thank you for reading.. waiting for your replies!

  1. Interesting tip! my problem is Push notification only works in the presence of 3G connection on my iPhone I thought it was due to the jailbreak!!! hope it will work


  2. Although i’m not having any problem with push notification but I will consider this as “plan B”
    Thank you!

  3. Tried it twice. It didn’t work for my iPhone, instead I can’t connect to internet at all.

    • @Eric Hi. First of all did you have any problems with the iPhone Push feature. if u did, then please check the DNS number u wrote is written correctly. if you are sure it does not work then you can try to use instead. if none of these works, then just delete the DNS number and it will go back to default. I have tested this on 2 iPhone and 1 iTouch and it’s working great.

    • It works like a charm now after I entered the second numbers you provided. Many thanks…

  4. Thank you..it worked! I did not know that I had a Push notification problem, my problem was that I could not connect to the internet after coming back from an out of Kingdom trip, and I keep getting a “Could not activate cellular data network” msg!
    Thank you again and I hope I don’t use the connection again!
