    I'm on my Nokia Lumia 1520.3 with Windows phone 8.1 and I've noticed that within the messages settings there is no options for Emergency Alerts anymore?

    Good catch. It is not on my 930 neither. Although, I am not sure if it would be on an international version. I am just checking my 920 with 8.1 and it is still there.

    Is there any way to get the emergency alerts for the US on my 930?

    That's really of because it was on Windows phone 8 under those same settings.

    I had forgotten to check to find the way to turn it off, since I just blocked unknown/withheld numbers which took care of that.

    It shows up under messages -> settings on my AT&T 1520, running DP 8.1.1 without Cyan. (AT&T version of the phone, not an international one)

    I'm running 8.10 cyan so hopefully it'll come back in 8.11. Mine is on T-Mobile but since it's international it should have it as it did in 8 and it's an important feature to have.

    I find this feature important as well, but my 930 seems not to have the option to turn it on. I have check all region settings and everything point to the US. Strange.

    Hee hee. I have some friends that were very upset that they could NOT turn off presidential alerts. Can't wait to show them I won't get them on my 1520.3 just to ruffle some feathers. Wish I had the time and resources to make a "fake" YouTube ad for non US Microsoft phones touting this "feature" for the more rabid Obama opponents. Might quadruple MS phone sales overnight.

    I hope they aren't familiar with the existence CV roms or they will be asking me to flash their phones for them. LoL
