Wireless Alerts Testing

Illinois Valley Cellular has taken steps to alert you, through your mobile device, in the event of an emergency.  Working with the FCC, you will be notified in “three classes of text-based alerts, such as Presidential, Imminent Threat (e.g., tornado), and Amber Alerts.”

To read more on CMAS, read this article on ivcel.com, or the fcc.gov.

In order to receive CMAS alerts, you need a compatible handset.  The following handsets can receive alerts:

BlackBerry Curve 9350
BlackBerry Torch 9850
BlackBerry Bold 9930
HTC One V
LG Optimus Plus
Motorola Defy XT
Motorola Milestone X2

We will begin testing the CMAS alert system on Wednesday, September 19th, from 10am to  3pm.   If you have one of these handsets, you will receive test messages on your device.

Unlimited Data. Why is that Important?

Everything is going to “the cloud.”

What is “the cloud?”

The cloud is a remote server that “streams” your data to your pc, phone, tablet, etc.  For example, store your documents on google docs and access and change them “remotely.”  Store your music on Amazon or Google and “stream” your music.

Instead of taking up space on your already clogged with apps smartphone… You can stream your entire music library, instead of having to pick and choose which songs you want to sync to your device.

I wanted to see how much data I use… Just streaming for a few hours over the weekend… And it quickly added up.

Get UNLIMITED DATA from IV Cellular.  Break free from capped data… Join the IV Cellular Unlimited data network.

BTW — for those STRADDLED with DATA CAPS.  The app I used is called 3G watchdog.
