Why does a small company like Freedom Mobile have compatibility for alert ready to go to Samsung A5 2017 but not a bigger company like koodo. Not fond of the idea of dying in a zombie apocalypse because for some reason my phone on this service provider doesn't give us wpa compatibility...

hi yvonne,
I saw the confusion.  Freedom mobile's A5 was on their compatibility list for Alert Ready https://www.freedommobile.ca/accessibility-and-terms/alertready

Koodo might update it soon.
Edited: I double checked, and saw the device on FM list.

Oh sorry, its not on the list of compatible devices, the only newer Samsung device not on that list actually.

So it's not, not compatible.  Just not on the list for whatever reason.  Not being on the list of compatible devices does not mean Koodo is purposefully excluding it.  My phone is on the list and I didnt get an alert today.  The system is buggy based on the results from early in the week.  This was a test.  There is a reason they have these tests.  We all just need to let them test and figure things out after the testing has been completed

If there is a zombie apocalypse does the test really matter? I don't think that occurance will trigger an alert.
