My fancy smartypants phone just gave me the notification (three times, no less) that there was a test of some sort of Emergency Alert System. Digging into the settings it appears that there are four levels that it does, from AMBER Alert to Presidential Alert, and "Do you want to receive alerts in the future?" Do I want to be able to listen to communications from my dear old Uncle Sam in the future? I pressed no; it's freaky enough that there's a built in GPS, I don't think I could handle getting information from them to go along with whatever they're getting from me.
Communication is a two way street, sure... but what if I just want to be left alone? Despite having this droid for over a year, I'm still not sold on the whole thing.
