Is there any way to disable cell broadcast messages?

I had my phone on do not disturb and was woken up by several testing messages at 5AM. Can these be broadcast messages be disabled in Sailfish?

Maybe implementing them into messages would help since they wouldn’t bypass do not disturb.

I was surprised to see your message - because I have been looking for a way to enable cell broadcast messages (which are used in the Netherlands for general alerts) and I always thought that they are not supported at all by SailfishOS… Have I missed some release notes recently?

Might be that different channels are used.
Here is a PR from Ubuntu Touch (to Sailfish OS version of Ofono) to add more channels as supported

Maybe the code around there could give some hints on if it can be disabled too…
