    Some phones are set to disable the wifi when sleeping, and don't always turn back on when they are meant to, they can switch to Airplane Mode, = no wifi.

    In bold -- it really pays to list what's been tried other wise if you really did try everything then you'll get no answers

    Did find the following article, possible something to try at least, change the Phones IP to Static. (even if only to see if it changes anything) .

    I did read that it maybe an Android issue and that data is more stable than wifi.

    Do you mean notifications as in you have a new message on the home/lock screen or the app doesn't connect at all via your WIFI?

    Do they work on other WIFI networks such as free ones at cafes/malls?

    Since "everything" has been tried then guess there is no answer that will work. Bit of a bummer
