I definitely want to make sure that you can get the alerts you need, FeeBaby7. To clarify, here's more about turning on government alerts on an iPhone: http://spr.ly/6607GOB9x Is this where you turned on alerts? Alerts distributed by Verizon are sent based on specific areas, defined by location codes or entire counties defined by the authorized sender's instructions. For example: Severe weather may apply to a limited corridor, while winter advisories may apply to one or more counties. Did others nearby to you receive an alert that you did not? Are you referring to an alert from an app?

I did this- these were already on. And also, yes- the older iPhones and galaxies got them- the iPhone 12 models by me didn’t receive anything. Also, the tornado alarm was going off in the neighborhood
