Re: Alert Ready Test on November 17, 2021

For those of us on older phones that don't have the capability to receive these alerts directly, there are apps for both iPhone and Android that connect directly to the Alert Service to provide the National Alerts (and actually some more useful info as well.)

For Android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.artermobilize.alertable&amp%3Bhl=en

For iPhone
https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/alertable/id1277488940

 

These apps will also work for those who have set their phones to 3G only or WiFi only, where even compatible phones wouldn't receive the alerts.

Here's a comprehensive list of phones that aren't compatible (phones newer than the date of the article should be compatible with the Alert system).

@dougc 

I thought the audible alerts come through even with the device set to vibrate-only. Is that not the case?
