Push is finally here! Here's how to get push notifications on your iPhone.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> Tom Merritt: One of the long-promised technologies of the iPhone is Push, and it's finally here in OS3.0. It's the ability for an app to tell you something's happening with it without you having to have the application open. Here's how to get notifications on your iPhone. You need to have an app like BJiveIM, one that uses notifications. Then, once you've installed it, go into settings, choose notifications, and then turn on overall, or you can control is more precisely by going into a particular application and choosing to have Push notification by sound, text alert, or a number badge showing up on the apps icon. Once you do that, run the app, and you should start getting notifications from that app in no time. That's it for this how to. I'm Tom Merritt, CNET.com [ Music ]
