Emergency alert (exercise) - AT&T WEA Test
I keep getting these Emergency Alerts popping up on my phone. I have opted out of all emergency alerts on my phone (unfortunately I can't shut off presidential alerts). I have contacted AT&T several times about this and they assure me that all Emergency Alerts have been blocked on their end. But they keep coming through. Here's what it says. Love the grammar! Somebody working at AT&T should have finished their GED.

This does not come as a text message.
This pops up on my screen and is accompanied by a screeching sound.
I have already opted out of all Wireless Emergency Alerts.
AT&T has already blocked all WEA tests from my account.
And yet these tests keep happening.
