    Amber Alerts & civil emergencies for example.


    Any impatience you show will only create more stress.

    OK let's look at this from where you live

    In what markets is Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) or Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) available?
    AT&T has launched CMAS in these areas as of 1Q 2012:
    • New York City area (All 5 boroughs)
    • Washington, D.C.
    • Portland, Oregon
    Additional markets will be added over time, as we continue growing and adding the technology in markets across the United States through 2012 and beyond.

    This is AT&T
    But still should the button not be there ?

    I never had it. But I do have it with Weather Alert, available in the iTunes App store. Bennyboy likes this app too, I think. Well, he used to. lol

    The government will advise you when there is an alien invasion via an SMS message, allowing you to safely evacuate and survive.

    And where exactly will I evacuate ( I like that word ) to? Can alien see me under water?

    Edit: my stomach is full of gas lately, damn antibiotics. I need another plan.
