Cell Broadcast Messages are general messages, broadcast to a group of phones. These
messages are broadcast in numbered channels and, in general, each channel will tend to
carry one particular type of information.
Typical cell broadcast channels may provide information on local weather conditions, traffic
reports, or stock market prices. Please contact your network provider for a list of available
channels and the information they supply.
Note Availability of this service requires support from your Cellular Service Provider.

receive and make decisions about how you want to be alerted when Cell Broadcast
messages arrive. Be aware that your Accompli 009 device limits the number of messages
stored in the Cell Broadcast folder to 50.
