    Switching off broadcast notifications on Android Galaxy S3

    Recently my phone has started giving alert notifications at odd timings. On checking them, i found that they were broadcast notifications also known as amber notifications. Any way, they are really irritating and i would like to close them down. How can it be done?

    These notifications can be switched off. It can be done by going into the 'settings' and selecting 'wireless and networks' from it. From that option select 'more' and opt for 'cell broadcasts from it' and uncheck the option for receiving broadcasts. If you have any messaging apps check in them also. In the emergency alert portion you could search for the amber alert and get them switched off. You could also search the emergency message settings where you are sure to come across a setting for broadcast alerts. There would be an emergency notifications preview with the sound alerts preview. Select the option to make it silent.
