Can anyone tell me how to change amber alert settings on this phone?
You should be able to open your App Drawer, located the Emergency Alerts App. Once it is open, hit the Menu button, then Settings. It should give you several options, Amber Alerts included.
Wow I just had amber alert last night startled the Hell out me. I never knew it could do that. Kinda strikes me that big brother is looking over my shoulder, but if it saves a kid's life then it's a small thing.
from my spanking new Samsung Note 2
Its a push notification service... There really isn't much to look over your shoulder about. There are a ton of apps you install from the Play store each day that compromise your privacy much more seriously than that. It does; however, scare the jeebus out of you in the middle of the night.
