No Amber Alert

Thank God that we don't get them! There is an active Amber Alert and I never got it! Are we exempt from them?

No one in the country is exempt from them.  And yes, they come through to Public Mobile customers, but only if you're connected to the LTE network.

Re: No Amber Alert

I hear them before the phones do. I stream a police scanner on the Internet. I heear the OPP alert tone first.

It's not about network or data plan speeds.  The only thing that matters is the type of network that you are connected to.  If you have a 3g data plan here but are connected to the LTE network, you will/should receive the alerts.  If you have your phone permanently set to use only the 3g network, you will not recvieve these alerts.

Re: No Amber Alert

Actually I just got the alert couple minutes ago and I only connected to the Wi-Fi and I still able to receive the alert. So I don't think you only have to turn your data on in order to receive the alert...
