      They found you and your phone.

      Determined you were in the affected area, either by accessing your phone's gps or located it from tower references.

      And then force an announcement onto your phone; it's not like you're using a device to access public airwaves...you can have a phone and use your screen if you like without ever having service to it (it will still work to make emergency calls).

      Doesn't that concern you?

      What's to keep them from doing the same thing to announce how great Barack Obama's new initiative is?
