    So I missed work the other day. I go to sleep listening to music on my droid with headphones in the headphone jack. I woke up around 10am (2 hours late for work) and looked over at my phone. The alarm had gone off, but only in my headphones which had fallen off during the night.

    The only time I listen to music is when I am going to bed, but I no longer can because of this problem.

    Does anyone know how to make alarm clocks ALWAYS play over the speakers? Or do I just need to buy a new alarm clock?

    I used the search feature btw and could not find anything. Thanks!

    Sorry ... You need to buy yourself a new alarm clock.

    To my knowledge, the headphone jack overrides the speakers. Just lose the headphones..

    From the headline I thought you slept an extra 8 hours. I was going to say that you have a much bigger problem then an alarm clock if you can sleep all the way through a work shift. But then you explained later that you were late to work, you didn't miss work.

    I would also say there isn't a workaround on this. Alarm clock is the way to go.

    I think he means he missed work because he woke up 2 hours late, therefore not going in at all.

    No I was just late by two hours, I missed 2 hours at work.

    But I will be investing in an alarm clock.

    Other than this one small problem, the droid owns :)

    I stand corrected!
    Sorry no one any had results for you. I use my phone flawlessly as an alarm clock, but I've never used headphones...seems odd that the alarm clock wouldn't come over the speaker.
