Amber alert at 430am

How retarted could they be to send a alert like that to cell phones at 430am. Everyone is just going to turn off the alerts now. Should have been on radio stations if they wanted it to be effective

Exactly this - only my wife handed the phone to me at 4:30a and told me to turn off the alerts. Googling Android settings across 5 different versions in a sleep stupor is not something I would like to repeat...

Although, it might be good for some reparations -or- more ammo. Decisions, decisions....

scared the eff out of me. I use my phone as my alarm. Because of the time, I thought some major disaster or some other thing was happening.

I didn't hear it this AM. I have my iPhone's sleep mode thingy turned on. It suppresses calls and alerts until 6:30 AM, the time I said I would finish sleeping.

What is sleep? I've heard of this before. I think I remember it a long time ago

The only time that should be used at that hour is in the event of a national emergency like a nuclear attack, tsunami, sharknado.

You start sending those amber alerts at that hour and you are going to condition people to not look at their phones.
