NYC Amber Alert for Missing Child
« on: July 17, 2013, 03:55:31 AM »
So my phone just rang like crazy. Apparently a 7mo kid was 'kidnapped' by his non custodial mother.

I find it annoying. I left my phone on for a potential emergency and this wouldve woken me up. What business does the government have waking everyone for this?

Why is the city of NY focusing more on this child then on so many other children who are missing?

This child left with his mother in middle of the day it didn’t even happen in middle of the night. Which makes the question why ring the phone in middle of the night? Even by Laibi Klatzki the Shomrim members waited for their mass phone call till 6 am.

We would assume that Amber Alerts are for important urgent alerts…

Isn't a kidnapped child important?

Amber alerts are for missing children only. That's why it's called "Amber"

My Q10 has this fire alarm sound, which was really scary this night. Now all alerts are turned OFF.

Isn't that what they send out before storms as well?

I got on a flight once and about 20 iPhones went off with an alert all at the same time.  So loud.

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?
