Default I'd like an alarm to go off every ten minutes on my phone.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Set an alarm, let it go off, and just keep hitting snooze?

I think if you hit the snooze button enough times the alarm eventually stops going off. I'm not 100% on that though.

Ok, did a quick market search and it looks like Alarms is what you want. I grabbed the trial and you can set an alarm to repeat every x minutes. Maybe try that out and see if it's what ya need. The trial seems to have a 14 day limit.

Search for "repeat alarm" .. trial doesn't list if ya just use "alarms" for some reason. Stupid market and it's weak search.

I don't know about the OP, but I need my alarm to go off in intervals in the morning or I don't wake up. I have 5 different alarms set right now in 15 minute increments and with all different sounds. Anything less and I sleep through all of them. It sucks. Although I'm guessing he's asking for a different reason, since I can just set a bunch of alarms for morning and they repeat every weekday anyways.

Palmary Alarms is good. I have the pro version and love it. An alternative that I have been using for years though is to set up timers for your lights to come on. That really works well for me. I wake right up and no jarring sounds either. I get up at 5:00 AM so it is still dark. A sudden light always does the trick.

Sounds like someone needs to find a girlfriend/SO that can wake up to the first alarm, hit you over the head with a baseball bat and then go back to sleep. Is there an app for that?

Maybe a visit to a medical professional would help.

Sounds like you need a couple more hours of sleep each night.

Why not use the Calendar with a recurring event?

I was a snooze whore until I got one of these... Now I get up to my alarm within 5 seconds so that I can shut it off before the 'wife' alarm goes off... Now that one is annoying, no mute or snooze on it....

My guess is he is probably an Amateur Radio Operator, we have to id on the air every 10 minutes per the FCC.

Good guess...mine was that he was trying out for a new season of "Lost" and they've reduced the interval to type the code on the monitor to 10 minutes.

I'm actually way more interested in the "Why" at this point than the "How." C'mon, OP, fess up, why the 10 minute cycle?!
