Have you gotten an alert on ATT, or are you saying you can see the settings now? I'm not sure the settings - especially in a beta - necessarily imply that the operator is participating in the program...i just installed the iOS 7 ip5 beta and AT&T now has these alerts. We didnt have them before.
Just going to point out ATT does support it. I turned it off on my GS4 for everyone that I could.Sigh - so many wrong answers...
It's called CMAS and its' genesis pre-dates the current administration.
It's not a iOS feature, but iOS does now support it.
Various carriers have deployed CMAS, ATT is not one of them.
Versions of CMAS and CMAS-like systems have been deployed around the world.
There are existing threads on this, search.
Incorrect. Operators can decline to participate, partially participate, or decline to participate at all.Just going to point out ATT does support it. I turned it off on my GS4 for everyone that I could.
I believe a law was pass a long time ago that required all the carriers and phone by X date had to have the system up and running.
Probably because AT&T has chosen to partially participate.i can see the settings now, but i havent received an alert.
IPhone 4 Does not support this. There is a local lawyer collecting information for a class action lawsuit to pass on to a group in New York. Apparently Verizon claims the iphone 4 gets it while Apple says it won't.thanks for clearing it up, worst thing i ever see around here are wrong or misinformed answers.
on a side note, yes ios6 now supports it and it is deployed on money carriers who support its use. i know for a fact Verizon and Sprint support it, as i get the notifications as well as my buddy on Sprint with a droid device.
Exactly I believe this is the basis for the Lawsuit. The government made it a law. We too have version 6.1.x and it does NOT support these Emergency AlertsVZW iPhone 4 here, with iOS 6.1.3
Don't have the "government alerts" option in the Notifications area - is this a 4G thing or a matter of where you live?
