Dear tech heads,
Do really think my mother should be getting a flashback message with a picture of her dead husband 1 year after his death? What a stupid feature! I think a disable setting is in order.
I tried shutting off 'Previews in pop-ups' and it was not enough. It is doubtful there ever will be a suppression of an advertisement.
The solution is to shut off 'Allow notifications'.
For now, the only solution is to turn off all notifications for Verizon Cloud.
Why they want to make a backup service some kind of social media thing is beyond me.
We know it's very important to be able to manage the notifications you receive on your device. We have lifted this up as a concern to the app's support group. Hopefully the option to disable the Flashbacks notification will become available soon. We appreciate your continued patience.

Add me as another who would like to see this added. Pushing notifications onto people and then not allowing them to turn them off specific ones is bad for business. I could care less about my "flashbacks". I have Facebook for that.
Me too. This is ANNOYING. And I don't get notifications every 7 days... one pops up every few HOURS. It's bad enough that I can't find anywhere on this website to set up what the "cloud" actually backs up (I really just want it to synch my phone numbers of contacts), but now I get reminded of pictures that Verizon sucked off of my phone constantly.
Give us complete control over our devices and services. <-- notice the period.
Turn on your phone
Press the little gear symbol to go to Settings
Scroll down and select Applications
Select Application Manager
Scroll down and select Cloud
Next to Allow Notifications select the On/Off switch to OFF
What [Removed] thought this whole thing up? I DO NOT want my phone sending me useless notifications about "flashbacks" or making cute little movies out of the pictures I shoot and then sending them to my phone with musical accompaniment. I want to know when I'm running out of drive space and if I forgot to pay my bill and THAT'S IT! I get enough junk shoved into my face via my various digital devices and I don't need the phone I'm paying a serious chunk of my income to use doing the same [Removed] thing. Okay, Verizon?
