I have a LG G5 phone.. You would think its the latest phone. Its not updating the most current software updates. Also I can not get emergency alert. Its saying my phone is not Wireless Public Alerting Compatible Device.

It's two years old now so definitely not the latest.

Is it saying that you have a newer update and it won't work or you know there is something newer but it's saying that you have the latest?

That could be the latest version for your G5 and according to thus your device isn't compatible:

You can also use the Alertable App or The Weather Network App. Just remember the latter only provides alerts for locations you follow in the app, so is of less use when travelling.

@Goran not across the country, only in Ontario (or even parts of Ontario?).
