    Has anybody else received a weather emergency alert on this device yet? I did last night. It came in via a text message. What I want to know is if I can turn this off and also how the heck to you delete the message?

    Goto Settings in the stock Messages app, Emergency alerts. There are 4 levels of alerts. I believe you can't disable the Presidential alert if you are not rooted.
