Thanks, I couldn't find it, I'm curious though if only New Yorkers got this amber today?
Why would they send it to people out of the area?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

On the GNex it's settings>More>Emergency Alerts.
Once there there are options to get alerts for Extreme threats, severe threats, and amber alerts.
In Sprint (4.2.1) it's settings>More>Cell broadcasts

Did anyone notice how in the first alert they spelled Lexus incorrectly?

+1
That and the fact that my wife got a chain mail saying that the AMBER alert was really a virus caused her quite a panic.
