    This may or may not be an S3 issue, but I thought I'd throw it out here anyway to see if anybody on other carriers in the US has solved it.
    At 4:45 am on Saturday morning (my only day of the week I get to sleep in), my phone started making noises I never heard before. It was an Emergency Alert, part of the new Commercial Mobile Alert System or CMAS. It was an Amber Alert for a missing elderly person. Now, I'm not heartless... I certainly care.... but seriously? Do I have to get that message in the middle of the night? I went to the T-Mobile website to find a way to block Amber Alerts, but there was nothing readily available. I suppose I can call support and talk to a person eventually, but I'm curious about how other S3 users have addressed this.

    I'm talking to myself here, but I got it shut off whenI called T-Mobile. There is no way to do it yourself currently on their website.
