Disable notifications with new update??

by Mariachr87 / April 1, 2013 4:55 PM PDT

Hi guys,

I have updated my Galaxy S III to the new software and since then I cant find the way to disable notifications in general. And I don't mean disabling notifications from one application in a time. I mean by not receiving notifications at all.

Has it been removed with the new update?

I would appreciate your help.

Thank you in advance,

With that confirmed, it will help others offering advice. I am running the same version on my Droid Razr.

I have not found any global setting to turn all notifications off. It's not a feature I see in this system.

But I only have a dozen androids at the office (we are working on porting software) and not one had or currently has a global disable. Maybe there is one out there but we only have a dozen to play with.

That was always a feature of every application to disable notifications from it. So I'm not sure you'll find a universal "turn off" button.
