    No, but good question. I'd love to know, too. Anyone?

    apparently something that allows your BB to receive a universal broadcast message if somebody were to send one (example - in case of emergency). Not really sure who has this broadcast capability set up, so nebulous if it will actually matter that you turn it on.

    I know Cingular has an option to be able to have Amber Alerts for specific zip codes sent to your cell phone using the Cell Broadcast service. There are different channels. I don't know all the details on how it works but there are several functions that can be done this way.
