I have disabled the SNS service

now Yahoo mail app does not notify for Facebook emails, it does notify about everything else. In status bar i got the emails but not from facebook and if i manually refresh email list i get the facebook email but no notification about it.

I tried to uninstall facebook and yahoo mail then re install them but SNS still missing from services > All

Now everytime i login to facebook i get this annoying (other type of message) Samsung galaxy would like to access your account if i add the sync it keeps asking me again each time i login. It was "Log in to sync Facebook with your other applications" message before disabling the SNS

What can i do please help? Been hours i am trying with no avail.

  • If you can't re-enable SNS,then it sounds like you ended up disabling something that the SNS was dependent on. Recheck all other disabled apps. – HasH_BrowN Dec 21 '14 at 15:01
  • That's the biggest problem. There is no longer SNS app under all applications. And no any other app that has been disabled. – a man in love Dec 21 '14 at 20:08
  • Go into settings>apps>all apps>, then scroll to the bottom (first will be enabled apps a-z, then second will be disabled apps a-z)...if not following it then it should be in its own tab (disabled apps) after all apps. – HasH_BrowN Dec 21 '14 at 21:57
  • I have checked every single App there is just no more "SNS" no disabled apps too. Have a look here i.imgur.com/tSUKuw8.png and i.imgur.com/jSik82h.png I think there is no solution but to do a factory reset damn :( – a man in love Dec 21 '14 at 22:15

    After long day of trying and searching i think i finally found the solution to this problem. I have tried to use Gmail and that does not get notifications about Social emails too so i thought it is a generic problem. Turns out that gmail splits the emails into categories and the Social category has notifications off by default. So what i did i have turn the inbox type to Default and went to settings > manage labels then enabled notifications and notifications about every message. So i think this is a problem from Yahoo SmartView feature. – a man in love Dec 22 '14 at 11:43

Ok so after i tried everything to recover the SNS process nothing has worked but a factory reset, however Yahoo mail still gets Facebook emails without notifications so i am guessing this is a problem at their end. I would not recommend to stop the SNS process to get rid of the message "login to sync facebook with your other applications" as you can see a small issue turned into a big one. I am using Gmail now to get Facebook emails and everything works just fine. Big thanks goes to HasH_BrowN for trying to help me out solving this issue.
