    US officials just ran a big test of an emergency system that uses your cell phone.

    AT 2:18 PM your phone buzzed and beeped loudly and your screen said:
    "Presidential Alert"
    "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed."

    LOL! Nope, I received it on my P2XL and my husband got the alert on his 5X. Neither of us are Twitter users.

    Are you by any chance on a smaller network? I was reading not all carriers participate in that system, usually the smaller ones.

    I did get it on my V20.

    I got it on my S8 on AT&T. But, only got the on-screen pop-up. No sound at all. Everyone else in my office had their phones go off.

    I don't use the default messaging app on my S8, I use Textra. Somehow, the emergency alert goes through messaging and it passes to Textra, but somehow it doesn't pick up the alert sound it's supposed to make.

    I got it promptly at 18 minutes after the hour on my P2 ... my husband's iPhone alerted about 15 seconds later, and I heard the alert on the radio at about 20 minutes after the hour.

    That doesn't sound correct... It should just be a notification just like when there's an Amber alert. Doesn't have anything to do with messaging apps.

    I got mine today on my Pixel 2XL on Project Fi. It reminded me of an Amber Alert.

    Got it on both my phones simultaneously. I wonder what it was like in a crowded area of lots of people. Alerts causing disruptions. The media was interviewing people afterwards who were totally clueless as to what to do since they had not heard anything about it coming. Some were panicky. Sheesh :/

    It's not a text message, but an emergency alert app baked into the phone.
