If you've had severe weather in your area lately, you may have noticed something different - a text message beamed directly to your phone, regardless of whether or not you ever subscribed to receive such texts, and even regardless of whether or not you have texting enabled on your phone. The National Weather Service is making use of a law passed in April that allows emergency messages to be sent to mobile phone users.


Apparently the existing version of iOS doesn't support the automatic texting system, and it will - in order to comply with the law - in iOS 6.
The only messages that can not be averted are "Presidential Alerts," which are used for national security.
