From what I see you have to have data on to get it .This would be correct.

Ontario, in a room with 120 people.... 2 phones sounded alert on the test day. There's also only so many compatible phones. Here is the link for phones tested to work, with Koodo saying otherwise you'll need to speak with the manufacturer to ensure that they will work:

The Amber Alerts are really area specific. PROBABLY did not includ outside of Ontario.

Have received nothing.  I thought there were issues with Koodo's alert system.  Never received the test last week and nothing for this amber alert.

Update: It worked but it woke me up (iPhone 6S, on latest version and everything. I was even on WIFI Calling). I honestly forgot to screenshot the message but someone else posted it on Twitter.

No. When I put it on I did open a website that was all . Guess the site loading was 3 mbs . I turnd off wifi in my home and open a website

Yes I see that now . Turn data on to see if that was why I didn't get it now Koodo is billing me...If your overage rate is $7 /MB then you just paid for 100MB.

Yes I see that now . Turn data on to see if that was why I didn't get it now Koodo is billing me...No its pay as i go So just trying to find out if i just paid for 100 mbs total or was the $7 for jsut the 3 mbs

Just got it too.  This time all in English, unlike the one yesterday, which was bilingual.  (I posted a screen shot yesterday in this thread)
