    I noticed that 7.1 has an Emergency Alert Message mail icon. Does anyone know anything about this new feature? I can guess it's purpose but wonder who would send them.

    Other than that, no lockups, no bricking, all is well.

    Just curious.

    This is used by some governments and NGOs like Red Cross as a tool to inform people about any emergencies. Uncless you are in an area which support this funtion, I don't think it is useful at all.

    If your wireless service provider or administrator participates in CMAS, you might receive emergency alert messages in your message inbox or your emergency alert message inbox on your BlackBerry smartphone. CMAS is an emergency alert network that can send presidential, imminent threat to safety of life, and amber alert messages. Depending on your smartphone model and wireless network, this feature might not be supported. For more information, contact your wireless service provider or administrator.

    I keep them on...why not? I'm on the road for hours a day so I like having the Amber Alert one on.
