i just got an alert test from verizon wireless, anyone else? it was a notification i'd never heard before.
I got one too and I have been researching it but have only come across people who got it and are asking about it. No one seems to know.
selecting "more" gave 4 categories, presidential, serious/dangerous, local......to check, i unchecked all of them.
if the world's caving in, i don't want a text message while i'm trying to outrun the nuclear blast.
Yea, I got one also ... yesterday morning in fact. "TEST"
I too got one...... Sure would be nice if Verizon would give a "heads up" as to what is going on and more information about it ?
It was just a "TEST" ... that's all ... Probably coupled with the pending software release that allows Verizon to send these Emergency Alerts that will be able to WAKE UP the phone .. (not sure if they mean POWER UP or just WAKE UP from SLEEP). Time will tell.
yes it was a test but it allowed me to select any of 4 categories (or none) that i wanted to get alerts from.
it was a different sound notification than email, text or voice mail.
