Re: Alert Ready Tests Today

Successfully received on my Pixel with data on. I didn't get it on my work phone with data off and on call while alert went live. So don't be on call for long when such things happen Smiley LOL


I am not a mod. Do not send me private message with your personal info.

No alert here now out west with the last time zone of the allegedly 1:55 local time. Even if that was am...nothing. Data or not.

Blackberry OS10

As I said earlier I got that alert in Hawaii last January using an MVNO so I would think the phone is fine. Oh well.

Nothing here, so the Android 4 wonder phone, LG G Flex must be too old. And the Lumia 650 must be too Windows (It's only about 2 years old)!

It's great for my parents. It actually gets better reception than the iPhone 5s I tried them on originally. Windows 10 Mobile is actually very intuitive if you are a Windows PC user. My parents are used to the tile screen from Windows 8 and 10 so the phone was simple for them. It's quick enough to launch apps, Cortana isn't terrible in comparison to Google Assistant (Cortana is better than Bixby anyway). It syncs with their PC and they enjoy that element of it. There are still plenty of apps for it too. The camera on it is pretty decent but it has random lags where it takes a while to save. It could be an issue with the Micro SD being too slow too as it is just an old Class 4 I had kicking around. The internal storage is a bit small, but at least it is expandable. My mother enjoys the customizable ringtones and has it set to Music Box Dancer right now.

Re: Alert Ready Tests Today

Got the alert here in BC on two different phones, each with different providers. My iPhone is on PM, and it came through even with the data turned off.

Re: Alert Ready Tests Today

Probably it hasn't gotten an update for some time.

 

Both my iPhone 8 and Pixel 2 got the alert. One is on Telus and one is on Roger.

You might have

Ok so this round Telus (incl my Public and Koodo iPhones) did something even stranger

 

I would never even have known there was an alert today

It simply popped up on the lock screen a very long blurb of text

No audible alerts

No way for me to even view/read the alert once I unlocked the device (on one of my phones I unlocked fingerprint and realized I can not seem to find alert anywhere in phone)

So read the blurb on second device before unlock

 

This national alert thing seems kinda useless ... if this actually was an emergency I am betting most of the pop does not even get it....

Re: Alert Ready Tests Today

I did not get the alert. My phone did not go off nor did I get a message. I did get the message when I was with my Koodo during the last test. I have a OnePlus 3t (same phone as for the last test) can you please tell me why i did not get the alert?
