    Cell Broadcast Option - Smart or Stupid?

    Advertisement



    I was curious about the cell broadcast service option on my Cingular 8100 Pearl that you can enable. Is there a "master list" of channels somewhere that I have to enter into the configuration? Does Cingular support this? Is CB a little used (or stupid) option to enable?

    I guess I'm asking what's the down side and what are the benefits?


    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    I think all of us with a Pearl would like to know just what cell broadcast is. Carrier reps never have an answer. It's something that comes from RIM, as it's on the TMO Pearl too, and has been since the original rollout. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    As I said in one of my posts in the linked thread Cingular offers zip code specific Amber Alerts and I believe the use the cell Broadcast function, but I may be wrong about that.
