  • Emergency Alert System Expected for Cellphones

    Too cool! Will be tested in NYC and DC this year and be widely available next year. So far, must have fairly new phone to participate.

    If we still have any sort of organized society by then, this could come in handy!

            I think that it will be very helpful and could save lives. Myself like others find them selves away from the radio or TV most of the time but I always have my phone with me.

              My wifes phone has it. It alerted her on the last tornado warning we had here.

                I have a droid x I got last august, it has this built in. It hasn't gone off yet, though. It has 3 settings. It can warn you of Amber Alerts near you, and of bad weather near you. These 2 settings you can turn off, if you choose. The 3rd alert setting is messages from POTUS, and you cannot turn this off. So Komrade President always has a direct line.

                      I'd probably take a hammer to the damned thing.

                            It sounds like a cool feature (not the campaign slogans, the emergency alert system).
