    Has Verizon started using these alerts? I heard they are carrier based, so the carrier has to turn on the feature.

    Yes, Verizon customer here, & it went off the other day when we had some storms roll thru. It scared the Ba-Jesus out of me at first b/c didn't know what it was. Cool feature, but not using personally.
