It can happen that you receive on your Samsung Galaxy S6 CB messages by your operator. CB stands for Cell Broadcast. You will receive a CB message whenever, your dials in a cell (cell towers) and holds Samsung Galaxy S6 this a CB message. So by CB News local information or advertising can be sent to the customer.

Would you like to get on the Samsung Galaxy S6 no CB-messages, you can turn off this feature as follows:

Open from the Home Screen:

Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> News -> Advanced settings

In this submenu you can now find Android menu item "Cell Broadcast". Typed on the entry and you can then disable the slider to adjust the top-right next submenu this option.

Subsequently you any messages on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Cell Broadcast sent.

S6 Edge works slightly different for "Disable Samsung Galaxy S6 Cell Broadcast messages  "

You need to go to settings -> Applications -> Messages -> More Settings -> Cell Boradcast & Make it OFF
The S6 2016 also works this way. All cell broadcast gave me was the land line dialing code and funny noises in the middle of the night!

It works, make sure to set it on "enable" as emergency messages come this way as well.
