    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!

    i moved you to the note forum where folks who have your device can answer you better.

    you might want to try a factory reset maybe.

    Before you do a factory reset I suggest you clear the cache of the Clock (presuming that is the cause of the alarm), Force Stop it and then Disable it. Then, if you actually use the app, re-enable it.

    You can do it from Menu key / Settings / Backup and Reset but the best way is as posted by NeoGrandizer on the SGN2 forum (Reply #6) at

    That reply is in the context of problems with upgrading the phone to new firmware but the Factory Reset part applies equally well to your situation (after you have exhausted any other possible solution).

    Incidentally, you can obtain manuals from the Support section of the Samsung site.

    Thanks I am going to try that and see what happens I marked down my contacts so I wount loose them. Are contacts and pics saved to the sim card automaticly or do I have to save them there? According to the other tread he says to take the sim card out before doing a factory reset. Thanks

    you should also have the contacts saved and sync'd with google that way when you get another phone all of your contacts will be sync'd to the new phone when you sign in. but i think contacts should be stored on the sim card as well. i have never used a gsm phone so i'm nt 100% positive.

    You ask about factory reset but have you already tried clearing the cache? If so did it work?

    A factory reset can take up a lot of time setting up your accounts, settings, home screens etc

    To avoid any possibility of misunderstanding I think NeoGrandizer actually said to remove the microSD card i.e. that is the additional memory card one can plug in to store music, books, films etc.

    Just in case you are not sure which card is the SIM card and which is the microSD card you will find you have to remove the battery before you can release SIM card.

    I'm not too sure but backing up contacts to a SIM card was 1G technology and if I recall correctly it will only save the phone numbers ie no addresses, emails etc. So as advised by ocnbrze I would in any case, save / sync to Google.

    Hi again I cleaned the cache and cookies this afternoon and at 8 oclock the alarm went off again . I did not try the factory reset yet waiting to see if something else will work first. I did back up the contact on the sim card but I will back them up on google just to be safe.Thanks again
