    Default HTC One: Turning off emergency alerts

    Does anyone know how to take off or atleast silence the emergency alerts? I've looked for it in the settings and couldn't find it. It keeps going off during work.

    If it is like my note 3, Go to the Messages app, and go to settings. You can disable all but presidential alerts

This has to be the 3rd post in a month I've seen about this and it's curious to me.

    Do you not want to be involved, like me don't feel that you could be helpful, don't think it affects you, just feel that the alerts are annoying, or something completely different?

    I don't mind them. I just wish the alert wouldn't go off because I'm usually in school or work, and it's really loud. I just wish I could lower the volume or something. I thought putting my phone completely silent would help, but it's still comes in loud.

    Personally I don't like the Amber alerts. There are way too many of them. And almost always it's a parent that has the child. They are so over used that I just don't pay attention to them anymore.
