Maybe it's your phone, mine just made a siren sound until I cancelled them?

The siren was only supposed to last 10 seconds, which is what mine did. If yours carried on after that then something wasn't working properly. Maybe that's what led to the voiceover?

It didn't work on mine, Three.

I'm not sure if being connected to the wifi stopped it?

Worked on my S10 on Three, didn't work on my mums Pixel 4 on O2.  Wouldn't be shocked for her to get it in 3 days time, they've done that with SMS before (though obviously this isn't SMS, it should be priority).

I also was surprised it wasn't louder.

Ok .

I give the system 6 months before the hackers get into it.  :lol:

As I recall there used to be a way to send network messages to phones that pop-up like this, sort of like a special priority SMS.

If you  check settings there is a text to speech option for this, turned off on my phone by default. Worked fine for myself and my wife  on EE and  Samsung phones.

My son got it on EE.

I didn't get it on my phone on WiFi calling.

Kind regards,
