Debate about the use of frequent emergency alerts sent to cell phones

In an effort to get it out of the other thread, here's a new one.

If it were my child I would want everyone out of bed and searching and frankly I could care less if it interupted anyones attempt to get rest. If you saved my childs life then I would owe you mine!!!

I doubt when the Amber Alert system was created authorities were worried that someone would be "bothered." Especially when that is exactly the purpose of the system to attempt to get help from the public. Maybe some on here think that should be left up to the police.........oh wait, some on CP hate cops too.
If you lived in Springfield you would expect everyone in Kansas City and Topeka to jump up and start searching for your child?

You are obviously misunderstanding the purpose of an Amber Alert. As I mentioned earlier, the idea of it is to make people aware of the situation and to be on the lookout, not organize a nationwide manhunt.

Nobody is going to do that. The purpose of amber alerts isn't to get a bunch of people out driving around aimlessly.

I dont think the carriers should be allowed to have a setting to completely disable amber alerts.

What I do think is like on my phone after first initial alert you can dismiss the alert. And when phone goes to sleep as you wake it up the text massage appears of the alert and you minimise it with a button. The only disable for an amber alert should be a toggle to recieve text and sound message or vibrate and text.

As for working in an environment that doesn't allow personal cell phones well you shouldn't have it with your or it should be turned off. The reason for the repeated alerts are for people that may have there phone off or are away from the phone. You get your breaktime on your phone and get the message .

Just my 2 cents maybe be better ideas out there keep them coming.

The child was abducted near 5 pm alerts were out around 7 PM for all anyone knew that creep could have been on his way to kc or anywhere. Anyone traveling may have seen the alert and seen someone that matched the description and alerted the highway patrol.

The FCC regulates everything these carriers do your forced to except it.

Your cellphone taxes like it or not pay for the amber alerts. Demand to improve it and make it better don't just dismiss it as an annoyance.

One interesting thing I learned through this - my old cellphone, which does not have service anymore, received these alerts. Apparently even though it says "no service", it has service for calling "911" and receiving emergency messages like this only. (I use it as an iPod now which is the only reason it was on.)

You and I don't get along. We never have. If you would like to start over and let bygones be bygones, that's fine. I can do that.

Do you want to start over, or do you want to get into one of those retarded Internet feuds that wind up completely boring everybody else and make us both look like idiots?
I have no beef with you if you stick on topic. It's cool to disagree.

Yeah, that was my point. Be on the lookout.

Well that's the point of this discussion, but forcing things on to people isn't making it better.

Its a communication device regulated by the FCC it always has been always will be. You use it because the FCC allows you to. Kinda like a car its a privilege not a right. It wasn't intended for your tweet or fb time or frequency of your bowel movements. They give you that right and can take away just as fast. You can insult and say what you will about me on this. The fact is they will do as they wish and if they want they will send you a emergency message. That was what Communication devises were meant for not a mind numbing game of flapy bird.

Just like emanate domain the its there to take your land for the betterment of all and is not one damn thing we can do about it.

Are you truly this blind to the point of this debate?

Also, just because you're willing to parrot the bullshit the gov't puts out, why do you expect everyone else to do the same?

Not parroting anything here. Just stating the facts. Fact is in order for carriors to operate they must follow the FCC rules. All communication devises must be able to break off normal activities and broadcast emergency info fact.
