FWIW, I got two alerts.

BTW, I've found that you must respond that you rec'd the alert; otherwise they'll keep sending them. Found that out a couple months ago, after an earlier, different alert. I'm sure I entered the proper response to the first of this series. The second alert came hours later.

I have T-mobile, if it matters.

Same here Bob on all counts. I responded properly to the first one and got the same alert the next morning.

You can set your email alerts and not miss out.

Didn’t read all the pages of comments, but damn, you guys ain’t up at 4:30?
I was up, and almost walking out the door, on my way to work, when it went off. Hurried up and shut it off, as to not wake up the family. Just as I shut mine off, I heard both of there phones going off. Lol.

The point of the OP was, that by sending it out at a time when most people were asleep will cause many of those people to turn off the alerts.

Thus degrading the whole idea behind them.

1) Save one child by killing how many people with collisions as they are looking at the phones while driving?

2) If that is the criteria, why not make EVERY car on the road come to a stop, so the police and see who is moving and key in on them?

Heck, let's require remote kill switches in all cars, so the police can make every car stop moving, so they can slowly drive around and look of this one car.

You seem to be fine with ANY response to save ONE CHILD.
