thanks needed this thread. couldn't turn mine off. i'm curious how much other stuff the emergency repair tool could not set back to the way it was. I wonder if that's why my phone is frustratingly slow and unresponsive now.
For me i get too much email so the notifications pretty much are on all the time. It started getting annoying. It will be better when you can customize it so it only work for text messages, voicemails and missed calls.
