Windows Phone 8 is broken (notifications) (rant)

I can't believe this. I've been suggesting WP8 phones left and right (4 new Lumia users in the past 2 months) only to find out that all Windows Phones ship with a completely broken feature, for years: Facebook notifications in the messaging app are not reliable.

I bought a Lumia 620 to my girlfriend only to find out we can't chat anymore, I'll need to switch to the dreaded Whatsapp (single-device mobile-only app, and awful)

Apparently there are no fixes for this. None. Even the latest just-out-of-beta Facebook app from Microsoft is a piece of shit app that doesn't send notifications. Great.

I hope she won't like the OS so we can sell it back and buy a crappy Android phone again, they at least function.
