The next 'test' will come to your cell phone. Remember, smartphones can receive presidential and Amber alerts.


Is there any way to disable the Presidential alerts?

Why would you want to do that?

If something big is coming, I want to know, so that I can either do all I can to protect my family, or at least tell them good-bye.

I feel kinda out of touch now, after reading more I must admit, I did not know they could change the channel on your tv.


They might be able to change your channel, but you could always turn it off!




I like the way you think poster. We should all keep a watchful eye and if something in the near future does happen and this system is used.......I will remember this thread.


Thank you! If something happens I will also remember this thread.

I don't like the idea of some outside source being able to have any control over my phone. Esp. if there is an emergency and I need to reach my family.

Here's an example: A few years ago I had to call 911 from my cell phone for a medical emergency. After I asked for an ambulance I hung up and tried calling my family to let them know what was going on. For some reason if you call 911 for an emergency they disable your phone temporarily.

They dont disable your phone. Most phones go into an "emergency mode" by default- which you can disable on your own. Its a safety feature. "911" didnt disable your phone temporarily.......

And i believe the answer to your question is NO. Presidential alerts can not be turned off, i dont believe so. Atleast not on any of my previous phones... it will give you the "option" but wont let you select it. . BUt as someone else posted why would you want to turn them off?...If theres an actual emergency you arent going to be able to use your cell service anyway. Everyone will all be trying to call their family at the same time and nothing will work.

Take the "east coast" Earthquake that happened a few years ago. Literally from the moment it happened until maybe an hour or so later... all cell service was down, land lines were even down. Atleast here in VA, idk about up in NY but it seems logical to think it would be anywhere. And that wasnt even an actual emergency by any stretch...

And it wouldnt have "control" over your phone- anymore than it already does- it just makes sure you get the alerts. Whatever they are for.

All I can speak for is iPhones...

Go to settings>Notifications. Scroll all the way to the bottom and there are two settings-

AMBER Alerts
Emergency Alerts

You can turn off either or both.

I used to have them disabled but not anymore. I think even with them turned off, actual SHTF messages from the president still will come through.

A couple weeks ago we had tornado warnings and the alert popped up on my phone so there is some real world advantages to them.

I also do not believe you'll be at risk from anyone taking over your device through these services. If that were going to happen, I'd be inclined to think it would happen regardless of whether you have the alerts enabled or not.

Team Obama and their diabolical hijinks never announce an exact date, but they have PLENTY OF PLANS for after the election:

nypost.com...
OBAMA'S PLANS FOR A SECRET RADICAL AGENDA AFTER THE ELECTIONS
"The White House reportedly is preparing to provide amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants in late November, including work permits and green cards for up to 34 million.

"Even though Attorney General Eric Holder stepped down last month, Obama hasn’t named a replacement — that’s because he has someone more radical in mind: Thomas Perez. Perez, now serving as labor secretary, is a dangerous race-baiter — and a shameless liar to boot.

"Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s delayed Bergdahl investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. A senior Army official told me court-martialing Bergdahl would “make the president look bad” — and by extension, make Democrats look weak on national security at a time when the war on terror has rekindled. Dragging out his case past the election keeps voters from being reminded of the bad Taliban deal."

I guess that is a US only thing. Here in Canada there is no option to disable it. Not sure if we would even get the smartphone notifications here in Canada.

November 9th

Over in UK that would be 9/11/14 .... 9/11

I don't like the way this is playing out.

Obviously people in this thread have alluded to this, but I felt the need to type it out..

Too many coincidences, a weird end is nigh report, possibly only able to be pushed by the president and his men..

for NINE/ELEVEN.. Yeah, no one is explaining this away.

I generally avoid Doomsday Dates, but this November 9th has another coincidence. Elon Musk' SpaceX is going to have part of one of his rockets land on a barge at sea on November 9th.

Meanwhile, SpaceX's competition for the Space Taxi, Orbital Sciences, just had a resupply rocket blow up barely off the launchpad last night.

As I watched the Antares launch yesterday, and it subsequent explosion...my first thought was, "Oh no, how will the ISS astronauts get their supplies?!" My second thought was, "Maybe Elon Musk will handle it." Is it me, or has Elon Musk been in the news a lot lately? Tesla Motors, SpaceX...he's just so cutting edge.

The good news is that the ISS crew has enough supplies to last until March 2015.

Methinks Orbital Sciences has just slipped a few notches in the space taxi race.

Thanks for your reply. Elon Musk is everywhere, all the time. He must have a separate building just for his Publicity Department. And he's on record from a couple years ago, dissing the Antares rocket:

Wow...thanks for that link. So of course, he's in "I told ya so." mode today.
He's like our very own Tony Stark...or something.

I agree. Look at all the "insiders" warning about something big happening in the near future. It seems since then all kinds of weird sh*t has been going on. A national emergency right after the election? I suspect there is a plan being executed as we speak. Someone at the alert system typing in the particulars of the message and hit the wrong button by mistake, perhaps. The only alerts I have ever seen have been general tests, not with specific dates.

My good friend in North Carolina has ATT Uverse and said when the alert came on the channel changed to the Today Show and you could not change channels or even move the volume level on the tv. It scared her because it lasted over 20 minutes and she had no idea what was going on. I have Uverse, also, but did not see it so it affected select cities. (I live in Dallas).

ATT claims it was an error and a 'fluke' and said it would post results on their investigation.

I decided to look it up and find out what this was about and came upon this:

www.zerohedge.com...

It seems there is going to be a pandemic drill in NYC on November 13.

Not sure in what relation this is to the emergency alert ATT users woke up to but I did notice that ATT is participating in this drill. That's kind of weird to me.

Could Kaci Hickox be a part of this? This drill I mentioned in avbove post takes place in NYC and Newark, the same cities where they enacted quarantines for healthcare workers returning from ebola infected countries.

Was she part of testing the USA response to a person who defies quarantine?

Yes.and.Yes

She (and the boyfriend) are assigned "Plan B" agents.

Is this whole Ebola scare a hoax to gauge the public's fear then?
