I am abroad and get such notices about cell broadcast etc when in Baltics in Fig. 1. My SIM card settings are in Fig. (2-3). Fig. 1 Broadcast-notice visible often in Baltics, Fig. 2 Settings > SIM Cards > Sim Card 1, Fig. 3 Settings > SIM cards > Sim card 2

I googled the [city] 14442 but could not find anything about it. Perhaps, it is some piece of information about radio channels but could not find about it. Some threads recommend to configure Call Settings (here thread Turning off cell broadcast in HTC Desire 816).
To turn them off in OxygenOS, you can go to Settings > More > Mobile Broadcast settings > choose there appropriately.

  • Turn off Amber alerts.

OS: OxygenOS 3.1 (Android 6.x)
Phone: Oneplus 2

  • My guess would be the provider announces the Cell Broadcast channel that way. Check these posts for more details.

  • @Izzy Yes, I think you are right. I cannot find any Call Settings in OxygenOS, see the body. Sep 14 '16 at 15:34

    Masi, that got nothing to do with call settings. It's the cell broadcast channel you have to select in the cell broadcasts app (if your device has any). A little Google-Fu turned up this thread. Quoting: Go to settings/Wireless & Networks/More/Emergency Broadcasts. (that's where you at least can turn them off). You can also check for an app named "cell broadcast" – or see the second link in my previous comment.
