    ^^Thanks for that link. They aren't SMS messages, but WPA cellular broadband messages. And my phone isn't supported.

    Not interested in having an app that will bug me more than anything else. All relevant information should be available within the amber alerts, no need for excess baggage.

    The app will give you alerts beyond the amber alerts.

    I thought it was blasted to all phones that can text, over SMS. From what I've read of them, I don't feel left out.

    I don't think it is an app as I don't have it on my phone. This alert is meant for all smartphones in Alberta, we don't have a choice in the matter. I guess some phones are still not compatible.

    Put the Alberta Emergency Alert app on your phone.

    Might as well have an emergency alert for a paper cut.

    This is the first time I had experienced an alert. The ringing went on multiple times for everyone with a smartphone was quite excessive don't you think, given that the abducting was done by the mother of the child. The claim that the child's life was in danger with no information to back up that claim is concerning.
