AT&T to Load iPhones With Emergency Alerts From Obama Ė That You Canít Switch Off
Gateway Pundit ^ | June 16, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Just in case you want more Obama in your life… AT&T is loading iPhones with emergency alerts from Barack Obama… That you can’t switch off.

AT&T has begun rolling out Wireless Emergency Alerts updates for iPhone 4S and 5, so you won’t be the last folks to know if the entire northern hemisphere is about to be covered in ice à la Day After Tomorrow.

You’ll receive a notification from the carrier when your update is ready, but only if you’re using iOS 6.1 or higher.

Once installed, AMBER and Emergency alerts are automatically sent to your phone unless you switch them off via Settings. However, should you be tired of Obama, just know that there’s no way to switch off Presidential alerts.

So now Barack can track your calls and send you messages, too.

Because the other “Emergency Alert” system works so well? Was it even used during 911?

More wasteful spending from Der Dufus.

Recall that the 1984 Telescreen was two way. We know Obama is watching your phone. What would make people think he cannot also send you a message. It is the only way to keep order in Oceania.

“. . . that you can't turn off.”

Want to bet! Break the damn iphone in half and watch how fast it gets turned off!

I’d be OK with that if I could reply with F.U. to each message.

Obama listens in on Verizon and speaks on AT&T?

I retired 18 months ago and still kept my iPhone...come February, I’m going cold turkey - nada....gone. I’m gonna sell all my iPhones to one of them online re-packagers and document it to the hilt...who knows? They may end up with Abdul, or Mohammed or Ishtar - whoever, and I can show the FBI all the paperwork....

Tired of paying out the a$$ to stay connected to crap.
