I'm actually a little upset that AT&T doesn't offer this in my area. While out to dinner a few nights ago, my friend got an Amber Alert notification on her cell, and I didn't. She has a different carrier, and I thought it was a great idea.


they just rolled it out for the Iphone 4 and above nationally once you get the carrier settings upgrade it will be there.

Last time I looked the US had 50 states unless something happened overnight in the world.

Alaska is one of the 50 states however a lot of companies don't acknowledge. And most of the ones that do raise the prices on everything. A lot of "anywhere in the US*" deals have fine print that say "excluding AK and HI"

Is the network update something I do, or is it something I just wait for?

It will automatcily occurr. A lot of offers exclude both states not becasue don;t consider them as part of the US, it is becasue of the horrendous cost of shipping and lack of transportation methods to all but the larger cities in the case of Alaska.
