I saw a post tonight from the crazy Mcaffee guy that says the alert means the government has access to a certain chip, which means

they have access to your phone's microphone, camera, etc etc.

Which sparks my curiosity since, as the title says, I have an unactivated phone, with no phone number, that received the message yesterday.

How are they doing this?

...and does it mean they have access to EVERYTHING ?

I'm pretty sure you can make 911 calls on an inactivated phone. So that might be the case. The 911 chip?

That is prolly just the tip of the ice burg at what they can do. idk what but I am sure it includes something that is yet to be discovered by mainstream science.

Yes, any phone that is powered up is still capable of an emergency 911 call. If the alerts operate on that chip, it does not need to be active, just powered up and connected to the cellular network.

The Mcaffee guy said it was the E 911 chip.

Maybe he's not so crazy after all.

We've known the NSA has access to all communication and is recording a vast majority of not all.

I have had my number for 5+ years, didn't get the presidential message.

It was honestly kind of a snafu on their part that so many didn't.

His software is well known to be some of the most bloated and system hogging of all the av software/suits.

That aside, I dont trust anyone of the big tech companies. I'm sure hes right, but he shouldn't pretend he probably hasn't been at the forefront of mining data from personal PCs through his "protection" software.

Wonder if the alert was keyed off that Chinese spy chip? You know the one that's been in the news?

Poor reception might be the culprit.

If anyone didnt get it, are you rural? An area you normally have spotty reception? Etc?

Was the phone connected to WiFi?

It hasn’t been his software for quite a while he’s got zip to do with cyber security this days...

I got the alert on my active phone as well as my inactive phone that is connected to wifi.
I assumed it was for the reasons stated above. I know that I can still call 911 on the inactive phone if needed.

Well, maybe hes trying to repent?

Got a long way to go then.

Nope. There is a cell tower less than half a mile from my house.

Well, obviously you're on the "list".

Sorry to hear that.

I have posted previously....I have my real job in broadcasting. These tests were Obama administration directives. This was the 1st national tests with cellphones. Trust me, within 5 years...2 is my bet, they will hit ALL electronic devices. Even laptops and towers.

Just wondering because it said that a good percentage (can't recall exactly) had them, but not all.

Doesn't mean the chip itself was the cause, but perhaps it was a way of figuring out which ones did.
