After one Verizon rep told me severe weather alerts cannot be removed, I went online to figure out how to do it on my LG Cosmos 2. Even online there is a lot of misinformation. You're the first person to have the correct directions. Thanks! The only thing I would add to be even clearer is after you click on "messaging" from the main menu, you need to use the lower left soft key to click on "settings".
Thanks again OhHaiJoey !
On our non-smartphone the first severe weather alert was accompanied by the instructions that OhHaiJoey posted while subsequent severe weather alerts do not have the instructions.
Thank you so much!!! This has been making me CRAZY. I have been so disappointed in this phone, and these pop ups are the icing on the cake. It's a miracle I made it this far without drop kicking it, but hopefully this will make it a little easier to survive until my next upgrade!
