    I have a Verizon Galaxy S5 for a few weeks now. When I set up the phone I set the notification for the Emergency Alert System to notify me for all but Amber alerts. Thought it was a great feature since I'm not home alot and always have my phone with me.

    Since doing so there have been several National Weather Service extreme and severe weather alerts in my area which were broadcast on both TV and radio however I never reveived any alerts via my phone. I contacted Verizon who were basicly useless with giving me an explanation or solution, I spoke to three people and I got three different answers. One rep I spoke to said that it depends on what angency is sending out the alert and that verizon may not have been notified of any local alerts. So at this point I am a bit confused as to how the system is suppose to work? If both radio and TV media are sending out the alerts why am I not getting any via my phone? Isn't the point of this feature to get alerts through your phone should you not have access to a radio or TV?

    Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to all !

    Emergency alerts does not give weather alerts. There are several apps that will do this. Try the Red Cross app it works well for weather alerts.
