Re: Alert Ready Test on November 27, 2019

@jimbobs CMAS in Canada and US use the same protocols. In Canada we don't allow users to block alerts. In the US, they have different tiers of alerts and the low tiers can be blocked.

 

More info on CMAS: https://www.sharetechnote.com/html/Handbook_LTE_CMAS.html

 

For anyone else who doesn't want to be disturbed, just set your phone to "Do Not Disturb" mode automatically overnight. CMAS will not override DND mode. It will still deliver the alert to your phone, but it will be silent.

This assumes the client-side software (or embedded firmware) is fully compliant, of course.

 

I'm actually looking forward to this test.

@computergeek541 

It IS that easy

Only people who buy a cell phone from a Canadian carrier are out of luck

 

All USA phones have a disable button, as do many up here with custom firmware

I just turned emergency notifications off on my phone.  So, I will get to test if that control works or not. 


If it were that easy to disable, the dislike and complaints about the system probably wouldn't be as rampant.

Re: Alert Ready Test on November 27, 2019

I just received the test alerts.   

The one I got from Rogers with title "EMERGENCY ALERT".

The one I got from PM with title "Presidential alert".  We don't have a president in Canada.  It may be a alert from Telus President/CEO.  lol.

My alert on PM was titled "EMERGENCY ALERT/ALERTE D'URGENCE'.

I got a vibrate notification but no Amber Alert sound. Message stayed on screen until I cleared it.

It may be just my Chinese global version of Umidigi A5 Pro phone uses "Presidential alert".
