    Emergency Alert System Test

    Yesterday, at 1:55pm, there was a test of the Emergency Alert System. Did anyone get this? I didn't and yet my and my partner's devices are compatible.

    Yes and the English TTS reading the French was awful. Bell SIMs.

    Do you have LTE turned off?

    No, LTE on. I emailed them a while ago and asked whether it made any difference whether I was on WiFi or LTE but I never got a response, so I made sure I was on the LTE network exclusively at the time.

    Nothing. My partner didn't get anything on her iPhone X on Freedom, either.

    I got it on my main phone with Freedom, a secondary phone (V20) on Fizz, As well as an old Nexus 5 that I was transferring files from.

    Funny thing with the Nexus 5 was that there was no SIM in the phone, and no connection at the time.

    I didn't get the previous one when I was with Rogers, but I did get this latest one on Freedom.

    I got it the other day and the first time they did it a year ago. I'm on an "unsupported" OnePlus 5.
