Should the presidential alert have overridden my silent setting and made noise? This was on an XS
Yes. Only way to stop it is turning your phone off. It over rides everything!
Mine was silent while everyone else’s went off. My phone is always on silent. Xs MAX. :/
Maybe cuz I have volume turned off and silent on?
i never received it!!!!!!!
Mine went off at 2:18 but my VP's did not go off and we are on the same account with ATT. There was another one at 2:20 but mine did not go off for that one!
Silent would not have stopped it and you would still have got a notification. Volume all the way down might stop but not the notification.
I think it is a good idea if they do not abuse it!
I was in Sprouts and everyone's went off but mine. I even pulled out of my pocket thinking it must be going off but nothing. So I didn't get an alert either.
I saw the alert but my phone was on silent so it didn’t bother me.
I’m guessing this will only be used in a 2012 situation.
X here and T-mobile. Phone was on silent, alert showed but there was no tone.
My amber and emergency alerts are set to off. I still got it. It shouldn't be this way.
Wish it would have come up on my IPP (LTE).
My 8+ got it but with no sound.
My Razer played it loudly (twin speakers)
I turned off the alert a long time ago on my devices and thankfully haven't had them happen yet on any device since, I assume the setting was saved and transferred. I occasionally get a popup about stuff but no blaring notification. My XS did a short vibrate and displayed the FEMA alert but that was it.
You mean when scientists detected evidence of light from the universe's first stars, predicted to have formed 500 million years after the big bang?????
FYI: you are not supposed to be able to block presidential alerts, so, the normal alert settings don't come into play.
FYI2: seen several articles that not everyone will be getting the test alert, so, probably explains why some got, others not, even when on same account/carrier. For the record, mine did not go off either.
Mine was silent and i'm not sure whether to be happy about it or not. Atleast I know by silent they mean it
I didn't get it either. ATT
Got it on one device ( Note 9 ) but not on the iPhone. Both on the same network, and I couldn't do anything to mute it..and perfect timing too ( presenting in a meeting )
Disagree. This is for major national emergencies; incoming missiles, nuclear attack, tsunami, etc. It supplements the warnings on your TV or radio which you cannot turn off the alert either.
That is the point, it is for extremely rare (hopefully never) uses.
AT&T but I pulled SIM - and still got it !
Seems to have brought down parts of AT&T and Verizon networks.
Mine kept going off every so often. Not sure if it was repeats or if it needed to be acknowledged to go away.
I never received an alert either.
The government is not asking, they are telling you how I will work.
This was only a test to see who got the messages and steps will be taken by the carriers to make sure the ones who did not get the alert will next time.
Somethings are not your choice.
My Verizon went off. None of the family ATT phones went off at all.
Mine vibrated only, no sound. As my phone is always on vibrate.
