Most of you already know that after hacktivating your iPhone with tools like Redsn0w, PwnageTool or Sn0wbreeze, Push Notifications do not work until you install a patch like Push Fix or Push Doctor from Cydia. After installing Push Fix or Push Doctor, if you are unsure about the working of the Push Notifications on your iDevice, you can test it with a simple free app called iPusher.
iPusher is available for free via App Store. Just search "iPusher" in App Store and download this handy app. Once installed, open the app and click on the Test Push Notifications button. If the button text changes to Please wait... and you do not see any popup saying Yay, push notifications work fine!, it means there is something wrong with your settings. If all of your settings are fine, then you should get the popup shown in the screenshot below:
The best way to enable Push Notifications on a hacktivated iPhone is through SAM. SAM is a Subscriber Artificial Module which tricks iTunes to generate legitimate activation tickets for your iPhone and allows you to activate it without official carrier SIM card. SAM not only enhances the battery life of your iPhone but also enables full working Push Notifications on your iDevice. To activate your iPhone using SAM, follow the step-by-step guide here. Once fully activated, you do not need to install Push Fix or Push Doctor from Cydia.
