RMT Alert Received from Verizon Today
I have been reading the GLP Forum for many years, but this is my first time posting. Given all the threads regarding the emergency alert system test tomorrow, I thought there may be some interest in the RMT Alert I received on my cell phone this afternoon. I am sure there will be those who will not believe me, because I will not be able to provide any links or pictures. However, I will just type what the message says "word for word" and leave it at that.

Well, crap. In my message, I say I will type it word for word, and then I make a typing mistake. The RMT Alert did say the expiration is 11-08 not 12-08.

OK. Commence the beating hf

I wonder if they are starting on the cell phones earlier than the other devices? This was the thread I had started a few days ago...

I've looked through Google and have tried a few suggestions with no luck so far. Thank you for the suggestion; I'll keep trying. There seems to be others reporting that they are seeing the same messages. What I found to be strange was the message information after stating it was a "Test".
