    Severe Alert

    How do I turn this notification OFF? I've had 2 within an hour.

    About 1 1/2 hours ago I received a push notification that there is a severe weather alert in this area.

    I was talking to my wife at the time so I covered the phone number....best I could.. here is a screen shot...

    Sorry Robert. I was sleeping, or I could have told you. That woke me up one morning because of an amber alert, so I knew how to turn it off.

    The alert system just went into use a few months ago. I remember being at work and everyone's phones started going off within a few minutes of each other. We also use Sprint Push To Talk phones (about 100 of them distributed at our locations across 5 states) and everyone started calling in asking what the message was for.

    They sent out a test message as the first full scale test of the system to all phones nationwide, and now it is in use by various government agencies like NWS and police.

    Thanks for the information on that. I still think its annoying getting a notification on something that's totally obvious!!! Yes I can see the weather is bad....maybe it would be more useful to someone who works in doors.

    It was preloaded on the M as well. But I'm rooted and ROMed so I took it off. I can get those warnings elsewhere.

    Unfortunately I can't disable this app cause it won't let me and I'm not rooted. But I have everything shut off except for "Presidential Alerts" which is a "Mandatory Alert"..so if Obama feels the need to poor honey in my ears... I guess I have no choice. :banghead:
