    Good that AT&T will support WEAs...

    The other thing to know is there is also a process for law enforcement agencies at all levels to be trained and authorized to use the WEA system for the things they can use it for... so there may be locations where an Amber Alert gets issued but does not come across WEA...

    Will this get rid of my jailbreak?

    No. Carrier settings updates do nothing to jailbreak.

    I'm glad they're doing this in time for hurricane season. So what if they missed all those tornados.....

    WeatherChannel's email alert service is faster than the local media's EAS... as is an app I use & subscribe to alerts on - MyCast.

    First time you get one, especially in the middle of the night - it will probably scare the bleep out of you... it did me.

    You ain't kidding. First time I received an EAS through my iPhone 5 I was working out in my room with my headphones on and it the middle of doing bicep curls I got an EAS and I jumped 10 feet in the air!

    Yes the system will over ride any settings. When DND is set on. It will still notify you.

    I don't have it yet. Hmm. Maybe it's rolling out region by region.
