Commercial Mobile Telephone Alerts (CMAS) The FCC took a number of steps in facilitating the ability of consumer to receive emergency alerts through their wireless phones. In 2008, the Commission issued a series of orders adopting requirements for a Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS), a system by which commerical mobile servies (CMS) providers may transmit emergency alerts to their subscribers, if they choose to do so.
Does ClearTalk Currently support CMAS?
ClearTalk Wireless currently supports CMAS in the home coverage markets in Colorado, California, and Arizona markets. ClearTalk Wireless subscribers on a plan including unlimited nationwide calling services pursuant to a roaming agreement will receive alert messages if: (1) the operator of the roamed upon network is a participating CMAS provider and the subscriber's mobile device is configured for and technically capable of receiving alert messages from the roamed-upon network.
Currently, the Kyocera Milano C5121 is the only mobile device that supports CMAS updates.
ClearTalk Wireless currently does not support CMAS in the home coverage markets in Texas and New Mexico.
