Default anyone get amber alerts on there cell phones?

my phone just started making a sound I have never heard before and it happened to be an amber alert sent to my cell phone. It sounded like a fire alarm. I went to the michigan amber alert website and its for a guy that got kidnapped in Flint. I didnt even know I had this app on my phone. Freaked me the crap out when my phone went off.

Mine did the same thing. It actually woke me up, which was a good thing since I passed out in the easy chair & let the fire in the woodstove go out earlier. So here I am, surfing gl4x4 waiting for the fire to take off

Same here, first time eva! I think it is cool, I can play cop if I ever see the perp. I will beat him/her just like I see happen on Cops. I watch that show all the time so I know the lingo too. I can't wait to see the look on the idiots face when I taze them, oh yea I bought a whole Police package on Craigslist, it came with a Baton a Tazer and a Badge. I also bought some cool combat boots to feel the part. I still need to get a Hell Bright Flashlight to blind the drunken fools.

I received it too but my wife did not...she has a flint number I have a Pontiac number? There is a way to opt out of getting the messages but I think it's foolish. Amber alerts do not happen often and the purpose of those is to get the info out fast to find a lost or stolen child. So by opting out you are basically saying don't bother me with a lost/stolen child because I'm more important than they are

agreed. Im leaving mine on also. I think its pretty cool. If it were my family member I would hope others would keep an eye out, and not turn off the settings.
