Today I received my first Emergency alert message. Unfortunately I received the same message over and over, ever two minutes for 2 hours. I'm hoping this is not what's supposed to happen. Is this a problem other people are experiencing?

This is the first I am hearing about this issue.

Were you in a location with good network signal?

Did you try to reboot the phone?

What phone do you have? Maybe it was a reminder?

Samsung s7. It wasn't a reminder. Each message was accompanied by the annoying emergency message sound.

There was s good signal. I did not reboot at the time.
