    Default Words With Friends

    Has anyone besides me stopped getting notifications for this game? If so how can i fix this problem? I've found that if i restart my phone the notification shows up.

    I stopped getting the updates too. I did a hard reset on my phone and it fixed it. I wonder if uninstalling and reinstalling would have done the same thing.

    This happened to me after upgrading to Jelly Bean. I don't remember if there was an app upgrade as well. Either way, I think we need a bug fix, I don't think it's anything we can resolve.

    I had the same issue with a few games (this one, songpop, scramble with friends, dice with buddies) after upgrading to Jelly Bean. I found that if I deleted the cache and uninstalled the apps, rebooted then reinstalled them the alerts worked fine.

    Strange that I had the issue only with games, but not regular apps like hotmail or facebook.

    Do you retain your current and past games when you do that, or do you lose them?

    I have a different WWF issue. On my tablet (Trio Stealth) the board is so big that I can't see the entire thing. I can't figure out how to shrink it, it also doesn't scroll in order to see the whole board. Any suggestions?

    I would start a new thread with your issue. This is for the Sprint GSIII no longer seeing notifications with WWF.

    I lost notifications, and ended up deleting the app data in the Application Manager. Didn't have to uninstall and reinstall.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
