Under options/advanced/ cell broadcast Service it has option to be on or off! I have no idea what the setting should be!

It's sort of like an "emergency broadcasting system" from your service provider that is pushed to your BlackBerry. Uses tons of battery power when left on. You get emergency info on weather and alerts etc...

I have yet to see how it works...it is supposed to be a service provided by the govt/carrier, don't know anyone that uses it.
