Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), also known as CMAS, is a part of a national alerting system called IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) that enables emergency management officials to rapidly disseminate the warnings and safety information via text alerts to wireless phones based on the phones’ geographic location. The Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA is responsible for receiving the alerting information and forwarding the alerts to participating wireless carriers such as Sprint. Such alerts may come from the President of the United States; the National Weather Service, state or county public safety officials. This system is integrated into the same national alerting services that serve television and radio today.

Pros: quick start up, quick reboot, quick camera shutter, no bloatware
Cons: shuts off for no reason, whether the battery is fully charged, halfway, etc. the ONLY way to turn it back on is to remove the battery for a few seconds, then reinsert it, then try to turn it on. If that doesn't work I need to put it on the charger then turn it on. It'll be fully charged yet not turn on.
I returned it to Sprint and got another Fury. Did the same thing. Found out that many others have had this issue.
Sprint found nothing wrong with both phones, which to me means there is an issue with the phone itself since I'm not the only one with issues of it shutting off for no reason (but I had to pay to replace it anyway, ugh).
One star because I cannot do zero stars because of the shutoff issue. The first phone did it three times in the first two days I had it, the second one did it two times in the first three days I had it.
I am now with an LG Viper and so far am happy with it.
However, within the first week, the phone would shut off and require the battery to be pulled out in order to restart. I can't highlight this issue enough, as it happens almost every day now, and it makes the phone even more useless than it otherwise already is given the other issues.
Meanwhile, the voice quality on the phone is such that sometimes she can't hear the person on the other end, sometimes they can't hear her, and there's a lot of beeps and vocal distortion on her end that makes it potentially painful to talk to her (think loud mic feedback and cracking/beeping about 20 dB higher than the voice volume). Even when it's not adding the sci-fi soundtrack of effects, her voice can sound like she's moving the phone away from her face even when she's not. Voice quality when it's at it's best is worse than any Sprint phone I've ever owned (customer since '99).
So, bad voice quality and shutdowns, but that's not the end of the woes of this phone. The battery life, even when it doesn't shut down, is generally bad. Maybe 2-3 hours of talk time, if the phone doesn't get too hot to talk on first. The phone even when on doesn't always ring (anecdotally, 1 in 6 times when calling the phone repeatedly from the same room). Now, why didn't I replace this? I did. The phone new phone does the same things. So, save yourself the frustrating, and try something else. It's not worth the frustration.
Pros: Nice looking screen, responsive in apps for the price, not much bloatware.
Cons: Bad voice quality, bad battery life, shuts down randomly.
Also takes really bad pictures, arghhhh
and am stuck with it for another year and a half.
Shoot me now.
