Default How to turn OFF Amber Alerts on the MOTION

Last night my Motion made a loud unusual sound. It was an Amber Alert. After dismissing it, the flag asked if I wanted to receive them in the future. I tapped YES.

The iPhone has a setting to block these messages.

On this LG Motion, cannot find a system preference blocking this type of message.

How may one stop getting these alerts ?

Wait, why would you say yes but know you want them off??? lol. I think there's an app that comes with the phone that lets you manage alerts.

PS - Scared me too lol (live in Cali too) :P

Where does one find that ?

I see such things as:

Android Version 4.0.4
Kernel 3.0.8
Build IMM761
Software MS77010f
HW Rev 1.0



If I'm not on "C", how does one upgrade ?

Phone indicates the software is up to date.
