Government Alerts on ATT iphones?

A friend of mine just got an iphone on another network.  We were standing in the office and all of a sudden his phone started making a noise neither of us had ever heard from our phones. 

 

Turns out he had a Government Alerts section under his Notifications page.  It includes emergency alerts and Amber alerts.

 

When will ATT support this?

Everyone, 

 

On June 14th, apple provided a carrier update to all customers running a version of iOS 6.1 or later on an iPhone 3GS or newer and iPad 2 and newer. This update enables customers with iphone 4S or newer and iOS 6.1 or later to receive Wireless Emergency Alerts to their apple devices. YAY! 

 

Please see About WEA for more information on Wireless Emergency Alerts.

you also need a device that is WEA capable in addition to the carrier. These are the ones that are right now

Mabey you misunderstood my question.  IOS6 has this feature.  See the screenshot below. My friend has an iPhone 5 on another carrier and he got an alert today.  So the phone is compatiable.  ATT aparently is not.

See this thread: http://forums.att.com/t5/Data-Messaging-Features-Internet/Emergency-Alert-System/td-p/3274177

 

Apparently the service has been enabled in a few markets and the roll out to other markets is in progress.

I looked at a 3GS when I responded, it is not shown in notifications, just looked at the 4S and it is there, not sure about the 4, not carrying one at the moment

Interesting because I am it seeing it on my 5? I wonder if it is smart enough to only be present in markets where the local government agencies can support this functionality?

AT&T does support it. My wife receives them on her droid, but I do not receive them on my 3GS. I am running the latest iOS so I suspect it's dependent on both the iOS version as well as which iPhone you have.

You can get the same features with the Wx Alert USA app. iOS 6 does support it, but ATT has not enabled it for support on their network.

Stimpy: So what'll happen?

Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?"

Those who see it on their phones what areas are you in?

Nashville - current iOS - iPhone 5 = Not present
Nashville - current iOS - iPhone 4s = Not present
Nashville - current iOS - iphone 4 = Not present

Am I missing something? This is weather alerts. I think we are asking about government and police alerts. ie: amber alerts, bomb threats...

Thanks for your input.

I *did* "look stuff up" which was how I found this thread. Support forums are for asking questions and seeking answers. It's generally considered better to keep one thread asking the same question active, rather than starting new ones.

This thread was last active a few months ago. Not so much "ancient news". This thread made mention of a roll out of a valuable feature. I asked if anyone had any update about that feature. I specifically chose this thread to inquire about that IOS feature update for AT&T users.

 

 

About ONE WEEK ago, Watertown Mass. was on lockdown. Remember? A government alert went out. Verizon iphone users knew. AT&T users still did not. It was all over the news. Hardly ancient news. In fact, this inquiry is rather timely.

 

I'm interested in the IOS feature. But again, thanks for your input about the app you like.

I suspect that it is something other then just the IOS, the alert system was not on the verizon iphones until verizon pushed a radio update out to the phone. Had a text message on the verizon iphone to update the radio profile about 8 months ago, then had the deveil scared out of me when I was in the middle of a board meeting and I got the first emergency alert on the phone.

Yes, thanks. I agree. I was attempting to be brief, but therefore ended up imprecise... but yeah, some sort of radio update would likely be necessary. Did you find the feature useful on the Verizon Iphone? I had a verizon iphone briefly, and really appreciated it

It's a great feature to have.  I live in Columbus, OH some as well as WV and we don't have it here.  I know Verizon iPhone's have the ability to turn it on.  It would be great in case of a local alert or some type of storm emergency, like a tornado warning.  I think it's only available in select markets.  (Probably where it has been made a requirement by law).

the alert package is a service offered, have not seen any federal or local law that forces it to be displayed on personal devices.

I just recieved a popup "Carrier Settings Updated".  I didn't initiate anything.  What is AT&T changing on me?

 

"New settings required for you device have been installed."  It's an old 3gs.  What is new all of a sudden?

I received this update on my iPad Mini yesterday, however, not on my iPhone 5. I think it might be because my iPhone 5 is currently jailbroken but I'm not sure.

There is an easy way to find out! Just look under Settings --> Notifications, scroll all the way down and if you see government alerts that your phone has received this update. Or you can go to Settings --> General --> About and your carrier file should say 14.1.

FWIW, I received the notice on my 3GS. I looked in settings and it how's AT&T version 14.1 but I can't find the govt alerts under notifications.

If they are like other vendors, they push the firmware out to all phones but only those capable of the function will show it.

I received this update on my iPad Mini yesterday, however, not on my iPhone 5. I think it might be because my iPhone 5 is currently jailbroken but I'm not sure. 


My iPhone 4S is jailbroken & I received the update. My sister in law has a 4S & hasn't gotten it yet. My sister got the update on her 3GS but she didn't get the government alerts. Don't know what the update did on her phone. It's only suppose to be for the 4S & 5.

We have the 4 and 4s. Both carrier versions updated to 4.1 and the government alerts ARE in notifications on both phones. First I went to settings>general>about and then the message popped up that "carrier version was updated to 4.1". Then I went to settings>notifications and there they were at the very bottom of the notification page.
