I have a non-NZ purchased mobile phone "TImmy M50". 


I would like to ensure it will receive the Civil Defence broadcasts as described here.


I've followed the instructions on that site however my phone offers me the option to alter the "Mobile Broadcast settings" and to "Add Channel". Can anyone advise what channel I should enter here. I can click on a button to view "Channel List" but nothing happens.


Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have the same question.


The New Zealand system maybe totally different to the Cell Broadcast system used in the USA (which is the app you are referring to)

Yes, I too found the updated webpage and note the channel is listed as:




As far as I can make out, their website was updated after my original post.


Good luck on Sunday.
