Apparently the UK government is issuing some alerts which will freeze your phone until you acknowledge it
Please see more info here
www dot gov dot uk / alerts
I am wondering, will this work on GOS? I don't want any Gov bureaucrats to send me anything to my phone and freeze it's functions until I press ok. It says there that users don't even need to have location to be switched on in order to issue the alert based on event happening close to the area. I presume this is down to network carrier and the signal it sends to antennas when logs into the 3G signal to receive text and phone calls but I am wondering how will the GOS react to these notifications, will it even work?
