Come to think of it, I can't remember when the Emergency Alert feature on my S7E notified of dangerous weather conditions.
My phone is fully up to date, and, is set to receive all notifications. It has even been factory defaulted at various times, so, all of that can be scratched off of the "Things to Try" list.
Having said all of that, the state that I live in has an app available, for Android and iOS devices, that provides the same functionality as the stock Alert app...I wish the state's app was also available for Windows devices, but, the app's creator said that it won't be issuing a Windows version.
Either way, if there is a suitable alternative for the stock app, consider going with it.
same here, there are multiple threads about this. i would think verizon would put more of a priority on this fix since it could it could be dangerous and they would be liable since we count on getting alerts.
