    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.

    When you get to the messaging area, and you then are press the menu icon (in the lower right corner of the display), be sure to just "tap" the Menu icon, because, if you press the icon for too long, it will instead bring up a message "Search" screen.

    So just "tap" the Menu icon, and you'll get to the settings option to adjust the alerts settings.
