Emergency Alerts

This device is designed to receive wireless emergency alerts
from the Commercial Mobile Alerting System (CMAS) which
may also be known as the Personal Localized Alerting
Network (PLAN). If your wireless provider has chosen to
participate in CMAS/PLAN, alerts are available while in the
provider's coverage area. If you travel outside your provider's
coverage area, wireless emergency alerts may not be
available. For more information, please contact your wireless
provider.
Emergency Alerts allows customers to receive
geographically-targeted messages. Alert messages are
provided by the US Department of Homeland Security and
will alert customers of imminent threats to their safety within
their area. There is no charge for receiving an Emergency
Alert message.
There are three types of Emergency Alerts:
Alerts issued by the President
Alerts involving imminent threats to safety of life (Extreme and
Severe)
AMBER Alerts (missing child alert)
53
Customers may choose not to receive Imminent Threats
(Extreme and Severe) and AMBER Alerts. Alerts issued by the
President can not be disabled. To disable Imminent Threats
and AMBER Alerts, follow the instructions below:
1. From the main Home screen, touch Messaging
2. Press
Settings.
3. Scroll to the bottom and touch Emergency alerts.
4. All alerts are enabled by default (checkmark showing).
Touch on an alert option to disable the alert and
remove the checkmark.
