Test Your Cell Phone for SMS Text Messages
Will Delgado Alert work with your cell phone or mobile device? You can try a simple test below to determine if your device will receive Short Message Service (SMS) text messages.
If you did not receive the test:
1. Please double-check the phone number entered for any miskeyed numbers.
2. Is your phone within service range? Most cell phones have an antenna icon on the display screen that shows the strength of your current signal. If your signal is weak or out of range, please move your phone to a location with a better signal for enough time to receive the test message.
3. If you have a strong signal, does your cell phone service plan include SMS text messaging? Not all cell phone plans include text messaging or you may have opted-out of that service option, so you may need to contact your service provider to add text messaging service to your plan.
4. For AT&T customers, due to the merger between Cingular and AT&T, be sure to select the best option in the drop down menu of choices. If you had an AT&T cell phone that later became a Cingular phone and then back to AT&T, then select the option listed as AT&T (Legacy). If this does not work, try the other selection listed as AT&T (Cingular).
5. Have you set up a personal firewall on your mobile device to block unknown senders of messages? If so, please add Omnilert.net to your whitelist of approved senders.
6. Some older cell phone models do not support text messaging. Many cell phones and mobile devices made after 2003 support text messaging. If your cell phone is older than that, then you may or may not be able to receive SMS text messages. Please contact your wireless service provider for further information.
