At last count there was 25,000 Canadians who opted in and subscribed to getting free AMBER Alerts texts on their mobile device. Every carrier was basically on the list, except new entrants Mobilicity and Public Mobile. However, Mobilicty joined the group in June and Public Mobile has now decided to help out with the cause. AMBER Alerts gives info about a child’s abduction and to sign up you can text the keyword AMBER to 26237.
