| | Emerency Alert Test - 57 Times!
Please Login to Remove!
On Monday, 11/19 I upgraded from a BB 9700 to a BB 9900. On 11/20 I stated receiving "Monthly Test Alerts" - 57 of them over the course of about 6 hours!!!
And that's only after I started counting. They are a horrible squeal from the device, right in the middle of a phone call or anything else one is doing. They come one after the other - I counted 4 in one minute and another 3-5 say 5 minutes later.
I worked my way up the food chain at T-Mobile tech support, and they told me the alerts, were being sent by T-Mobile, they were aware of the problem, but that there was no solution at the time.
No alert tests so far today (Friday after Thanksgiving). I have other issues with the phone (poor battery life for one) so I'm going to take this POS back to T-Mobile ASAP and buy a new BB 9700 on EBay.
