Will my mobile phone work in a major emergency?
Alerts are delivered using the text messaging (SMS network) feature of your mobile phone. The alerts come across like a page on a pager. All cell phone carriers, and paging companies, offer text messaging. Nearly all phones purchased within the past few years are text messaging capable. If you are unsure, contact your wireless service provider to ask about your phone and text messaging.
