    Cell Broadcast?

    Advertisement



    Now here's one thing I cannot find on Pinstack. What is the "cell broadcast" setting under the Advanced Options for? All I've heard is that you should leave it off. Does it do anything? What's the purpose? Can anyone offer some true insight to this?

    I think its got something to do with information yr service provider can send out like weather info of the area you are in. I saw it on a cellphone once long long ago. There used to be codes you put in to get the info. On my carrier 50 was for weather. I haven't tried it on the BB.

    Thats exactly what its for. It is sort of like the emergency broadcast system on the tv or Radio. They are still trying to figure out how to implement it. I.E who will activate it with each of the carriers, etc.

    Seeing that its a Govt. thing, I am not holding my breath waiting for implementation.
