Hi everyone @pgn @NicolaWright @MI5 @Cleoriff 

 

Just so you are aware we are carrying out an operator test of the government's Emergency Alerts service today. So if you received one of these alerts you do not have to worry, there's no need to take any action.


And if you'd like to find out more information about this service, search for gov.uk/alerts

 

Hope that helps clear the confusion a bit! smiling

No, it's not a UK thing......
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

This wont affect everyone.  Its for a select few smartphone users.  Some handsets will give off an alarm sound.  This is a test run for a software that has been introduced to warn people of terror attacks.  

I work for O2 but my comments and opinions posted here are solely my own and do not reflect those of Telefonica.

Did no one think it would be a good idea to tell the community before customers starting asking questions?
