    So if it is that alert... That article doesn't mention any kind of opt-out. Is there one?

    I don't mind getting these once in a while, but 8 in a single day is absurd.

    Yes your supposed to be able to opt out from everything but a presidential alert. Here's another link with more detailed info http://support.verizonwireless.com/f...lerts_faq.html

    I have received them too. For me and I could be wrong is I subscribe to weather alerts for my area and I get email alerts also around the same time. I am on Cm9

    I got one of these texts yesterday. After flashing CM7. On my deactivated Droid 2. With WiFi off.

    I rarely use DF on the desktop and mainly use Tapatalk, so if I don't or can't see something in your sig, a vid, or a pic, don't blame me!!!

    Yeah. They'll come through on an unactivated phone since they are emergency alerts. Same way an unactivated phone can still call 911.

    Stock ROM has the Alert app and you can turn the alerts off. Custom ROMs don't have the app, so we can't stop them. If we had the app the message would appear normal instead of garbled.
