    Incredible v. 1
    Android 2.3.4

    Yesterday I received some sort of alert about a news story (Navy yard incident). I would prefer to not receive these alerts, how do I turn them off?

    However, I would prefer to receive amber alerts, how do I turn these on?

    When I:
    - go to text message screen
    - menu
    - settings
    I see no category for toggling off/on emergency alerts.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. I don't see a mobile networks listed directly under settings.

    Under 'Wireless and networks' there is no cell broadcasts option. Only 'Mobile network' to turn it on/off. And a 'Mobile networks' which has data roaming, data roaming sound, system select, and enable always-on mobile data.

    Hmmm interesting... Might want to download "gesture search" from the market and use the app to do a search for it.
