    Hello everyone,

    My problem is that I can't see any opinion for receiving cell broadcast/emergency alert messages on my Xperia M.
    I didn't find any settings relating for this function neither at Messages -> Settings nor General settings menu.
    I downloaded cellbroadcast.apk and enabled to install any apps in settings, security but there was an error during install:
    "Application not installed"
    What's the problem with it? I know it is a minor and hardly used function but I'd like to add it. There are some phones which have this function.
    Should my phone be rooted ?
    How can I enable receiving cell broadcast messages? Or how can I install this app? There must be a way toactivate this function. Thank you for your answer.

    Steve

    If it didn't come from the Play Store, you need to go to Settings -> Security -> Unknown sources and enable prior to installing.

    PS: Are you certain the capability isn't already installed? What version of Android OS are you running?

    Of course, I enabled installing from unknown sources. I checked everything in settings, I don’t have any apps similar to this
    Evenmore, in tge message settings, there are only sms, mms, and push settings, no signs for 'cell broadcast'
    I guess this problem isn't easy solved.
    I have Android 4.3
