Not receiving any amber alerts or government alerts

Not receiving any amber alerts or government alerts

With our old wireless plan from different company we receive our states amber alerts. Since switching to Xfinity mobile we have not received them. Does anyone know if we need to do something in settings to get these back? Really not too worried about it but it was nice getting them before. Thanks

On iOS, you need to go to

 

Settings | Notifications

 

then scroll all the way to the bottom, and the toggles for AMBER alerts and Emergency Alerts will be there. Make sure they're enabled.

Not sure it's an iOS thing, can anyone confirm they've gotten a gov alert on XM on iOS?  I sure haven't.
