The problem is you can't "completely" opt out

and your phone or ipad has an "always on" connection to a government server. I believe that's how I understand this. Yes there are toggles to turn off the Amber Alert or Weather system but "Presidential Messages" cannot be disabled. If this is handled by your phone carrier rather than some Gov. department, then I suppose it's "less creepy".
