This is probably from Facebook calendar (Facebook Events). You can prevent events that are not responded by ticking "Only show Facebook events I've responded to" in Calendar > Settings. If you don't want notification from Calendar at all, go to Settings > Lock Screen > Notifications and change calendar from options.

Simply swipe the toast notification to the right and it will leave your screen. If you have multiple pending toast notifications (for instance, if you receive multiple texts concurrently), you will have to swipe each of them in turn. However, this will dismiss them. You don't even have to unlock the phone.

Whatsapp uses the toast notification feature in Windows Phone. It uses less battery by receiving a push notification from the Server to show a notification in your phone when you app is not running at all. As an workaround in this case you can only disable this buzz by disabling the "all other notifications" in "ringtones+sounds". Edit With the Windows ...

settings > ringtones+sounds > manage app sounds at the bottom. I think you should see appropriate app sound to change. Note this only works in Windows Phone 8.1,

No. In Windows Phone 7.5 Skype does not support push notifications. More than this, like you said, as soon as you leave the app (even without closing it going back) it makes you offline. It looks like something about how Skype works and an app can't run in background. It will be solved in Windows Phone 8 with integrated VOIP apps in OS (Skype and 3rd apps)....

Windows Phone have a unique approach: The start screen is your notification center. Without any extra action you will be able to see relevant information from all apps you have pinned. Depending on the size of the tile you chose you may see just the number of messages waiting to be read, or a preview of the messages on larger tiles. However, this system is ...

With the Windows Phone O.S. 8.1 is possible to disable such kind of notification. Follow this steps: Go to Settings notifications+actions Find the app you want to change the way notifications work Just change the "Notification sound" to "none". Optionally you can disable the banner too in the checkbox you will find just above. You can go wver further and ...

If you send the message "/nobday" into any chat, it will disable birthday notifications for that entire client. Nothing will actually be sent to other party.

I had this problem when i was on old builds like 10586,136, .164 etc. make sure you are on latest build. these were small bugs. they're all fixed now.

Short answer Yes, Microsoft explains on one of their developer pages that a third party can register to send push notifications using Microsofts communication channel to the phone. The Microsoft Push Notification Service in Windows Phone is an asynchronous, best-effort service that offers third-party developers a channel to send data to a Windows ...

The Messaging hub on the Windows Phone can't do this, perhaps in another iteration in the future it could come to existence but until then I don't see any MS way at doing it. When I looked through the Marketplace using several terms like mail, email or e-mail and then combining them with warning, alert or reminder I didn't came across any applications that ...

You can stop background services by Settings > Applications > Background Tasks. Or simply turn on battery saver mode that stop all background tasks. Whenever you're ready to receive notification, revert it back. I think there's no better solution for this problem right now.

I think this is not possible from the settings in current version of the system. I think this option is left for the developers - they now have API for manipulation with own action center items, so they may implement such behavior if it is appropriate. This will come with time as more developers will made updates for their apps and start to manage their ...

If your Lumia is running Windows Phone 8.1, you can swipe down from the top of the display to reveal the notification centre, which contains all toast notifications. Tap on any entry to go to the respective app, or swipe right to dismiss. If your Lumia is running Windows Phone 8.0, there unfortunately is no way to recall toast notifications. Your only hope ...

This can be done with a custom app that doesn't use the built in phone email function I believe. I use the below vode in my .net desktop apps and i think similar will work on phone. But I don't think battery percent is available in Windows Phone 8. Only 8.1+. In Windows Phone 8 you can only detect whether it's charging or discharging iirc. You can have the ...

If you're on Windows 10 Mobile do this: All Settings > System > Notifications & Actions Under 'Notifications' turn 'Show notifications in action center when my phone is locked' to off. This may work.

This is finally possible (see UserVoice update here). Just add your audio file (<30k) to the Ringtones folder on your device. It should now show up under the Custom section when selecting your new notification sound.

I use a workaround for that. I also have a GMail account, which I use for stuff like internet forums reply notifications and corporate spam which I have actually signed up for. Instead of adding this low-priority email account as a separate inbox, I forward the email to my main Exchange account on Office 365, where email with that To: address is filed into ...

Go to Settings --> Swipe right and choose background tasks --> Block Whatsapp from running in the background --> Once u exit the application, it will be enabled and say goodbye to Toast Notifications!! :D Glad to be of help

I was able to get the notifications I wanted by removing my four non-Outlook accounts from the phone, then re-added them starting with the two in order I wanted to show on the lockscreen.

There is no such thing yet as Notification Center like in other major mobile platform (iOS, Android). Microsoft's vision way is to use Live Tiles. They are a key part of the Start screen and the modern experience of Windows. They provide up-to-date content and notifications. Live tiles embody the Microsoft design principle of being fast and fluid. Users can ...

This is a limitation by the OS - the sound will always play as long as the toast notification is visible which even is under 5 seconds. Unfortunately you can't change that duration, even as the app developer. However you can tap the toast notification and drag it a bit to the right as if you would discard it but don't release it. This way you can keep the ...

Is more information present than is shown on the screen? Yes. The app passes in the full notification, but the system is truncating it, which is what you're running into. There is no way around this in Windows Phone 8 or 8.1. However, Windows 10 Mobile allows you to expand the notification, showing much more -if not all- of it. You can see an example here:...

You can accomplish seeing sub-folder notifications with Windows 10 Mobile with some outlook rule tricks. One way is by simply editing the outlook rule used to move the email to a sub-folder. The option you want is "display a Desktop Alert." While this does make the rule client-only and thus only works when Outlook is running, it is a workaround. ...

Hey do check these things on your phone: Go to >All settings>System>Notifications & Actions>Messaging (Switch is 'On'). Enter Messaging & switch 'On' Notifications, Show notification banners, Keep notifications private on the lock screen, Vibrate if my sound settings support it, and choose your Notification Sound. Now go to >All settings>...

Had that problem too. Follow these steps: Go to Settings->Battery saver->battery usage. Select Messaging + Skype and click details. Allow the app to run in background and also for even when battery saver is on.
