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.
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.
