What are you so stuck up about? It was a well publicized test.

I would disagree. I read a daily paper, listen to a crapton of talk radio, and watch broadcast TV news about twice a week. I heard nothing about it.

The only thing it accomplished was me trying to find another way to switch it off again. I should really root my phone.

What was that test supposed to accomplish? It's one thing if they would send an alert that is actually useful. But a random test without any feedback option? What's the point?
