Emergency Alerts

I noticed Verizon & T-Mobile gets emergency alerts. Even on the iPhone, how come AT&T doesn't do this?? It'd be a great addition considering how much of a premium we pay for our smartphones.

Not sue, suspect it has to do with OS programming changes needed and maybe special hardware, have not looked into the frequency that the alert uses - suspect it is not a normal frequency since it goes to multiple type of devices.
