Ok, I managed to get the push messages on the app! The alert triggered after a reinstall
But I can't seem to get the notifications while the app is open. Is it possible to show the notification on the device desktop, like the other native apps?

That good news that you've been able to make progress.
I see in the sample code you posted beofre that you are specifying index.html as your wakeUpPage. So when a push comes in and your application is closed the following page will be loaded.
var wakeUpPage = "index.html";
Can you confirm that the body onload in your index.html calls the blackberry.push.openBISPushListener() function?
Also from the Push API reference it says you must specify the rim:allowInvokeParams="true" in your config.xml
<content src="index.html" rim:allowInvokeParams="true" />
You may also want to add the following feature to your config.xml
<feature id="blackberry.invoke" required="true" version="184.108.40.206"/>

Ok, so I did confirm the blackberry.push.openBISPushListener() is called on the body load of index.html and added those configurations to the config.xml file (i was missing the feature blackberry.invoke).
When I have the application open, the notifications arrive perfectly, but when I close the app or when I switch to another task (using the BB key) the notifications cease.
Do you know if this is possible to do? I mean, how does the push notification know where the index.html page is if the app is closed?

Ok, understood, thanks
My app only has the index.html page, I'm using jquery mobile to change the display, so my only page has the body onload calling the openBISPushListener... what else can I check?

I have been having the exact same issue and fixed it by moving openBISPushListener out of the onload event as follows:
