Designed to notify nearby residents in the vicinity of a missing child, the piercing cry of the AMBER alert can sound at anytime and anywhere. And while the alerts have the noblest intention, many people are calling them annoying and somewhat intrusive as they wake millions of users in the middle of the night. We’ve previously described how to disable AMBER alerts on iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Phones and BlackBerry. Now it’s Windows Phone users turn for some relief and hopefully a good night’s sleep.
To disable AMBER alerts on your Windows Phone:
1. Go to the Start Screen.
2. Swipe left to access the Applications list and tap Messaging.
3 Hit the three dots in the lower right corner and select Settings.
4. Click the Emergency Alerts button.
5. Slide the AMBER Alerts tab to the left to turn off the alerts. You can also choose other alert settings (all alerts, Presidential only and Presidential and Extreme alerts) in the Emergency Alerts box below.
