Default Emergency Alerts?

It's springtime, which means storm season ...

Was more than surprised to find the X (VZW, non-DE, 4.4.2 via safestrap) is not receiving any broadcast emergency alerts.

That's kinda the whole purpose of that feature ... to wake the dead with that beep sound, so you know when there's a storm coming.

Anyone seen the same, have a solution?

(Yes, all appropriate settings are properly set)
