I'm on an iPhone 7 and receiving LTE signal. I've not received the emergency alert test. Unsure what I should do to make sure I get an alert when I is truly needed.

I'm also in downtown Toronto, did not receive the alert. Nor did 3 of my family members in Pickering, ON. I have a Blackberry, son and daughter on iPhone and husband on LG.

Ok. Not sure why certain devices are not included . Regardless, what about my husbands LG and my kids both on iPhone, one 5S and one 7? Why didn't they get the alerts?

I'm in downtown Toronto and also did not receive the alert. I have a Nexus 6p, and I just double checked and my settings are correct to allow the emergency alerts.
