    Almost every phone can get them.  They are not normal texts, they use a different technology to ensure instant delivery that can not be sunjected to congestion.

    There are 3 types, Presidential Alerts, Imminent Threat Alerts and Amber Alerts.

    Amber alerts were added to the program just this year.

    You can opt out of Imminent Threats and Amber Alerts, but per the WARN Act of 1996, you can not opt your device out of receiving Presidential Alerts.
