Hey Community,

 

Today, November 28th, you will be receiving a wireless public alerting test message if you have a compatible device. Canada’s Alert Ready service became available on April 6, 2018, and its purpose is to broadcast emergency alerts to inform you of critical or potentially life-threatening situations that require immediate attention to keep you and your family safe. To learn more about the Alert Ready service, what devices are supported, and the test schedule for your province or territory, visit alertready.ca.

Oh uh, it's that time again.  Let's see if it works perfectly this time.  Thanks for the heads up @Brooke_C, so I don't get a heart attack when my phone goes off beside me, lol.

Let's see how many of us here DOES NOT get an alert.

 

Likely those who brought in phones that are not marketed in Canada. 🤭

I didn't get the previous test.

I got the one in Hawaii last January though when I was with an MVNO there.

A thoroughly Canadian Blackberry OS10 phone.
