Many phones will require an update to get these msg's. One part of theTB update was for this! It iis a great idea, however to be in a store and hear all the phones go off for a thunderstorm watch will be interesting
Yea that's for Sure Budone I knew they were Coming but i didn't realize they were going to be out this Soon: But it's a Good thing Especially were we live Tornado Alley As you said it will Interesting to Here Several phones going off at the Same Time with that Tone. But at least every one will no what it's for.. Duck an Cover An hold onto Your --- as it could be a Wild Ride Baby! Lol b
Here's a Verizon page with information on this: http://support.verizonwireless.com/faqs/Wireless%20Service/emergency_alerts_faq.html. It has a list headed "Capable devices include:", but the list is a very short one. Neither my phone nor my wife's is listed. In fact, there is only one Samsung phone listed, the Convoy, though there are Motorola phones older than my Stratosphere listed. So: is the list incomplete (it doesn't claim to be all-encompassing); did Samsung miss the boat; or what? The page offers a couple of links that look like they're going to go to more complete device information but (and I wish I could say this surprised me) they just redirect back to this same page.
I took a look at the List Mortb it Looks Kind of Short I Wonder if they will add to it. I would hope that would be the case as Many would Left out of these Important Text..
Most of the Phones on this List is Motorola But a i mentioned Many are Left Out.. That needs to Changed
