I changed some settings in QPST tonight, v2.7 build 362, and noticed a tab called BrdcstSMS or something like that. Anyway, in there are the options for the SMS Service Alerts. CMAS, Pres., etc., all of them. And since I got the evo 3d a few weeks ago, Ive wanted them gone. Especially the presidential alert which by default is set to 'on' and there is no option to disable it. The others we can but not the pres, which annoyed me. But I digress.

So here are some screenshots. Youll need your msl.
Im not responsible for anything you do in your life.
Highlight the alert field there and click 'edit entry'. 'Active service' will make that alert appear in the messages app under settings and the 'selected' field represents the alerts 'on/off' status. So you can uncheck 'selected' to disable the alert or uncheck both boxes and remove them completely. You can go back after removing and disabling them and read from phone again to see that they are in fact disabled.

I hope this helps. Worked for me. Make a nand regardless. I really didnt want those alerts there and Im glad theyre gone.(the only proof being if one is sent and I dont get it, I guess)

If this is known, well...

Good things are doable with QPST, first volume control and now this. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know. This certainly seems useful but I suppose there's no advantage or disadvantage to doing this, so for the sake of personal preference, why not, I guess?

Great find (although I probably won't use it)

FYI: This can also be done via EPST. ##2627# and you can enable/disable CMAS alerts completely.

Which you can also accomplish with the method that I described. Seeing as how the 2627 code doesn't work for me or initiate any menu, qpst was my solution to disable/remove these alerts.

You need a different EPST.apk then.. EPST is a simpler soft toggle on the device. QPSt will do it, but requires more software and such. But hey, now everyone has two ways!

Since day one, 2627 hasn't worked and I tried about one dozen epst apk's. So qpst was my solution.
