    Oddly enough, my sister knew Amber and her family. Anyway, its one of the first things I disabled so I can't really help but the option is there.

    Not really. Easily solved by turning it off.

    I have the setting turned on two OPO phones and neither one receives the alerts. Anyone figure out why?

    do you get ANY emergency alerts? I vaguely recall getting severe weather alerts, though that could've been via Google Now.

    As others have mentioned, Amber Alerts are issued for child abductions. This is a US Service based on a Law passed named after a child named Amber whom was abducted. However the cell Broadcasts can be issued for other events such as severe weather.

    I haven't received one since I got the OPO that I can recall. But no one around me has either. So I can't rule out it is the phone or a lack of alerts.

    Location is Settings-Wireless & Networks-Cell Broadcasts

    No amber Alert for the OnePlus One!!!
    You need an APP for that. Very helpful if you have a kid, and God help you and never have to use it.

    I got an amber alert the second day I had my opo but I have not had any since however in Oregon USA we don't get them very often unless the amber alert involves a federal level cross state abduction

    It is required by law in the US for the phones to be able to get these plus severe weather alerts. You are able to turn them off, I have mine on and never received any on the OPO.

    Two things if your sister knew Amber why can't you be bothered to leave the alerts on? If you disabled them why even answer as it doesn't help. Not to be petty but to say that your sister knew the person who this was named after that you can't even be bothered with possibly saving a young girl's life is pretty self centered.

    I turn off the amber alerts, but keep the Severe and Extreme alerts on.
    The Amber alert does me no good if I am at home, but I see them on the highway electronic boards as soon as one goes out. So I still get the info.
    Living in Texas and formerly living in California, the Severe and Extreme alerts have saved my butt. Got one for a bad wildfire in LA when I lived there and I want my phone screaming at me if we get a tornado warning in Dallas

    Only the nation highways usually have the signs, so if you are on a side road or not a major Highway you will never know of the alert and could possibly pass right by the victim.
