    Hey guys, I got my first emergency alert from my iPhone 5 today, apparently is was just a test.

    Anyway, does anyone know where in the file system the sound is located? It sounds like the same alert you hear on your TV. I want to change it to something else.

    Please, DON'T COMMENT IF YOU CAN'T HELP.

    Really?? Not a good first impression on a forum... #justsayin

    It's the same as you get on the TV... yes... and there's no way to change it on a stock OS device. You'd have to be willing to jailbreak, and root around in the OS to find...

    PS. They made it that way so you'd notice it...

    Thank you. I posted this in the jailbreak section because I have a jailbroken phone. I will do some looking around.

    I'm on AT&T so don't have that, but have you tried /System/Library/Audio/UISounds? A lot of tones are in there.

    See below.
