    Any news on the Amber Alert just sent out (I have a Verizon phone so I’m not sure if it’s only Verizon phones…)? That was the scariest sound my phone has ever made….

    Surprised me too. Was going to disable it, but figure it’s probably best to leave it enabled. Settings -> Notifications -> scroll all the way down.

    I recently switched to Verizon and was at work when the Amber Alert came through my phone, and most of my co-workers too. VERY distinct tone and impossible to ignore. BRILLIANT service. Why haven’t all the carriers done this? It would work for emergency broadcasts too, in the case of natural disaster. The only thing I couldn’t figure out was how to find the message after I’d clicked on dismiss. It doesn’t show up in my text messages queue.

    I was watching TV at the time it came through on my phone — was interested to note that the Alert didn’t come on TV until 26 minutes after it rang on my phone.
