Blocking the sender doesn't work, but switching to 3g does.


I do have _some_ confidence in my software. Since I downloaded, modded, and compiled it myself from the old Signal SMS source repository on github.

 

Still... results speak for themselves and there is no substitute for success. I can have it installed (with different settings) on several active devices during the test broadcast. I can't report actual results until afterwards. 


If it works, can you make it into an app and sell it??? Smiley Happy cause..... "I'd buy that for a dollar" haha

I think it's unethical to sell other people's software. Especially when those people make it freely available opensource.

With my previous carrier, I didn't receive any emergency alerts, even tests. I recently switched to PM, so it will be interesting to see if it comes through this time.

I remember last time it went off was while I was at work. I was talking to my staff and the alarm was going off. It was going off for over 30 seconds at least. I told everyone "For the love of God can someone turn their alarm off?". It wasn't till someone walked behind me and said "Sir, it seems the alarm is coming from you". I reached around to my back pocket where my PM phone was and yup, it was me. LMAO.

Re: Alert Ready Test on November 27, 2019

I'm not sure it's my phone or something else. I SOMETIMES get it and sometimes not. I'm worried in case I miss the important one for me. Anyone else having this issue?

The Canadian Alert system is not based on SMS messaging.
