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.
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.

Thanks. On the s3 it is just under the settings for the stock messaging.

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?

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.
