    I didn't know this so just posting incase others haven't noticed it either. WEA has been enabled by the GDR2/Amber updates for the 920. Go to Settings > Messaging > Emergency Alerts if you wanted to play with those settings.

    Thx for info. Think I'll pass though. I don't need an alert every time a little girls cat runs up a tree and gets stuck.

    Thats probably the worst reply i have ever seen on a thread. When your child gets abducted and the one person that may have seen the ahole that abducted her didn't get the alert because he didn't want to be bothered, you may think differently.

    I keep forgetting that the majority of posters here are young teens on their mommies phone plans so it's ok if they have the emergency alerts turned off. After all they would probably wet themselves if ever presented with a real emergency. Don't worry, the rest of us will handle it and tell you everything is ok when it's over.

    I wouldn't be so quick to judge. I thought about turning it off. If it's my kid, a families kid, Friends kid, and maybe even somebody living in the community's kid. I hear about it first from texts or word of mouth before an Amber Alert is made... One of the many advantages of living in a small, close-nit community.

    I understand, if it's a kid across town that you don"t know that's ok. Hmmm.....

    These are more than just Amber Alerts. They are also emergency alerts, weather alerts, presidential alerts, among other things. As a member of my local EMA, I think I'll leave mine on and will ask our director about it.
