    • If you have problems installing push doctor, that means your push certifications are not installed properly, which gives you an error when you are downloading push doctor.

      I am not sure when is the best time you can download push doctor, check this website here and check when certifications are up for download.

  4. Thanks for the reply,but i found another fix using only SAM,and it really worked!Just Go to SAM>>Utilites & then: Backup Activation>>Deactivate iPhone>>Restore after that reboot your iphone,finaly check with iPusher.And again I really appreciated your quick reply.
