    aparently its the worst storm in living memory?

    i didnt realise you needed electricity for water supply over there... is that because theres no hills to provide the pressure?

    Nope, seems AT&T left this one out, no options in Settings here either.

    Newbie (to these forums) here, so go easy... I have had my GS3 for about 8 months. My better half has had her iPhone 4S for 9 months and my youngest has had his iPhone 5 for about 2.5 months. We're all on AT&T (no comments please).

    Last night wifey and youngest's iPhones got an Amber Alert for the first time since they've had cell phones. My GS3 did nothing. I have looked thru the Messaging, Settings menu and I don't find anything relating to the Emergency/Amber/Goverment/Presidential alerts idea. Am I just lucky? Is it something that AT&T will probably include in the coming JellyBean update? Am I looking in the wrong place? Mostly for curiosity's sake. One other idea that occurred to me is that I live in Texas where we do get occasional tornados and would like to be notified in the middle of the night if one was close enough to cause concern.

    TIA!

    In the stock Messaging app, press the Menu button, select Settings, scroll down to the "Emergency message settings" section and select "Emergency alerts". In the new window select the alert types you want to receive.

    Well, that makes a bit more sense, but it's still curious to me that AT&T would take this option out or not include it at all. They're one of the 'big boys'/'players'

    I'm not surprised - Verizon, in their infinite wisdom, took out blocking mode and the Wi-Fi toggle. Guess they're not the only ones that think they know what the customer should be able to do on their own phone. :banghead:

    It may not be there. I'm with AT&T and even on the latest update (4.1.2), it's not there.

    According to the at&t site, not all of their devices are able to receive WEA notifications. This is the list of compatible devices (note that the Galaxy 3S is not a WEA compatible device):

    The following AT&T devices are WEA capable*:

    iPhone 5
    iPhone 4S
    Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-i337)
    Samsung Galaxy SII (SGH-i777)
    Samsung Captivate Glide (SGH-i927)
    Samsung Galaxy Appeal (SGH-i827)
    Nokia Lumia 520
    Nokia Lumia 1020
    LG Optimus G Pro (E980)
    BlackBerry 9360, 9810, 9860, 9900
    Motorola Atrix 2 (mb865)
    AT&T Z7998
    AT&T Avail 2 (ZTE 7992)
    AT&T Fusion 2 (Huawei U8665)
    Alcatel 510A
    Alcatel 871A

    Description of EXTREME vs SEVERE alerts (from NWS web site):

    Some cell phones allow the users to opt-in and opt-out directly on their devices. These devices differentiate the imminent threat alerts into two categories - "Extreme alerts" and "Severe alerts" as shown in the image below.

    The Extreme alerts from the National Weather Service include warnings for tsunamis, tornadoes, extreme winds, hurricanes and typhoons. The Severe alerts from National Weather Service include warnings for flash floods and dust storms. For example, by keeping Extreme alert selected and de-selecting Severe alert, the user would still be capable of receiving Extreme alerts, but would not receive Severe alerts on their cell phone.
