I live in rural California and my iPhone SE 202 stopped receiving emergency alerts.
I have chatted with Verizon Support and have done the following:
Unfortunately, it's not like you can check if this works immediately. You have to wait for an alert.
Now, here's where it gets bizarre.
I have an old iPhone 6S that was my previous phone. I use it for music and audiobooks because it has a headphone jack. The 6S does not have a SIM card and is connected to my home WiFi. (My SE is also connected to this WiFi when I'm at home.)
My old phone IS receiving emergency alerts.
Currently, there are two wildfires in the area that have generated evacuation notices for the surrounding area and I've been alerted to the evacuations through the Emergency Alert System on my old iPhone 6S, as shown below. But I really need to get these working on the phone I carry with me all the time.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
We understand needing to get those essential Emergency Alerts, TwistyCat. To help ensure your new phone is working properly, it would be best to try testing the alerts. Please see the page below for details on this with your iPhone.
