I have been reviewing the Orbra Inferno, a 7-inch Android 4.2.2 tablet. I ended up with less than 10MB left on my monthly data plan and decided to turn data off on the device. The idea was to turn it on only when I really needed it, and so hopefully put what was left to good use. So, off I turned it.
The surprise is that I keep receiving Facebook and Twitter notifications (not SMS) though internet connection is turned off. I am talking about the standard notifications that show up in the Android pull-down menu. I don’t know what to make of this, as I am stumped how that can be. This phenomenon has been going on for two days now.
Is there anyone out there who has experienced this too or can explain it?
