    I have disabled AMBER alerts, severe alerts, and extreme alerts. Obviously "Presidential" alerts cannot be disabled. But I still get monthly carrier "test" alerts setting off the siren on a dozen phones all over the office every month. How the heck do you turn THOSE off?

    Did you ever find out if these alerts can be disabled?

    I don't think they can.
    But it saved me once.

    Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) | FCC.gov

    Why are some consumers receiving WEA test alerts on their mobile phones?

    Participating wireless carriers are required under FCC rules to conduct periodic testing of their WEA infrastructure. As part of their test, some participating carriers may choose (but are not required) to send test alerts to WEA-enabled handsets. Consumers with questions about these test messages should contact their wireless carriers.

    I've never received one of those test alerts. Verizon is my carrier.
