    Where do you set the volume of the alarm clock?
    There's only an option for selecting what sound you want and not the volume in the clock app itself.

    And under Settings -> Sound and Dispaly, I find Ringer volume (which also sets the Notification volume) and Media volume.

    I know it's not the Ringer volume and not the Notification volume (I use different ringtones to figure that one out).

    So it must be the Media volume?
    The only problem is that whatever I set that volume to - the alarm goes off at full volume, nearly kills the speaker on the phone while trying to play off the ringtone.

    Is this a bug?

    Hi Ursula89,

    So, we're fellow citizens :)

    Sorry to say, I've not found any sollution to this.
    Hence my other post regarding where to post info/questions about bugs we find.
    And I was too lazy to google this anymore. I might try sending SE an email.

    I downloaded an alarm clock from the androidmarked that worked very good.
    I don't think I'd have heart to be woken up with that nois one more morning ;)

    If it's anything like other android phones, go set your alarm and act like you are trying to change the alarm tone. While that screen is OPEN, hit your volume buttons on the side of the phone to raise/lower the volume.

    Don't have an x10... just trying to help. :)

    Thank you for trying Kelmar, but sorry to say this doesn't work.
    When I open the alarm app and adjust the volum keys, it adjust the ringing volume.
    If I try the same thing while in the list of selectable alarm tones, it still regulates the ringing volume.
    But, if I preview an alarm tone and try to regulate the volume while it plays back - I regulate the media volume.

    Still no sollution, as both my ringer and media volume is set low - and the alarm goes off at full volume.

    Installed it and tried.
    The alarm volume was set to 7 of 7, I adjusted it to 3.
    Still it went off at full volume.

    I guess it's just another SE bug with this software.

    Well, I downloaded the Alarm Clock by Craig G and it fixes what's wrong with the SE alarm. It even lets you set the defaults for alarms, so you don't have to set them repeatedly for each new alarm. And it's free.

    Hi,

    Thanks for this. I'm going to download it as I have the same problems.

    Is there any way of setting the alarm to work even when the phone is off. I turn my phone off at night but it doesn't work when the phone is switched off. This is crazy unless I am doing something wrong.

    Does the phone have to be on for the alarm to work? Or is there some an app to solve this problem?

    Thanks
    Lee

    Did downloading the alarm clock by Craig G sort this for you? If so - how do you download it? My alarm clock is really annoying me and all my neighbours! LOL!

    Thanks

    Hi Vicky,

    It sorted out all of the problems apart from turning the phone on if its turned off overnight.
    However all I do now is switch to Airplane mode at night to save battery and that seems to work so the battery isn't dead in the morning.

    Just download Alarm Klock
    by Craig G from the Market or Appstore using your handset

    Ok, this app is a battery killer!
    Last night I had 96% and after 10 hours with the alarm app running in the background to wake me up this morning the battery was at 56%.
    That's 40% battery in 10 hours!

    And no, there's nothing else running in the background.
    gps/wifi/3g-data is all off and no other app pulling/pushing data.

    Thank you so much! This totally worked. I've only had my Samsung Epic for a few days and that alarm had to be turned down. Thanks for posting this!!
