Californias first Cell phone AMBER Alert

Last night I was carrying a TMobile, sprint and Verizon phone of widely different types.  Not only did all three of them get the amber alert at the same time, it sounded identical  with an alert found that as I know none of them can be programmed for.

Apparently this was California's first use of SMS 'Push" technology to send this alert to every cell phone within 100 miles of what turned out to be San Diego, regardless of what carrier it had.  Sounded like one of those TV alerts for an inbound nuclear attack or a tornado.
