What's the status of Amber Alerts (and Emergency Alerts) in iOS 6? I see them in Notifications on my iPhone 5 (on Verizon) but two people I work with that have an iPhone 5 (both on AT&T) don't show it. Is it only working in Verizon phones at this time? Or did I change some setting that they didn't, causing them to appear?

Got my first one this morning. Scared the crap out of me. Now, my phone wasn't on silent, and my DND schedule had expired, so don't know if it will always be that loud, but if so? Yikes.
To make matters worse, my wife's 4S went of, too. Good to know it works.

Re: Amber Alerts
We have hadAmber Alerts also and have never received anything.. Even severe weather...
Not sure how and when it's supposed to work... But would be nice getting some clarification from carriers.

THIS site, the emergency alerts are on by default and rely on tower location to know who to alert. If a visitor was in my neighborhood on vacation their phone would also receive the notification, without the need to sign up for alerts.
Unfortunately the notification is not interactive. Tapping on the message will not direct the user to more information about the current emergency.

Re: Amber Alerts
Or you can utilize the Weatherbug app. They have Severe Weather Alerts and works fairly well! Weather for Apple iPhone Smartphones - WeatherBug
Come on At&t, get with the program and take care of your people!
