    So I usually have my phone placed on a pillow or something when I sleep, so the speaker in the back is bad for alarms usually. I thought of a solution, that I would LOVE, but wondering if it is possible in any way?

    Could I hook up my phone via headphone jack, to my speaker system, so when the alarm goes off it would play through the speaker system? That would be sooo amazing and would make it a lot easier to get up to! :) Any thoughts appreciated!

    Well I'm at work til late at night, and was curious. And also thought it would be unlikely without an app or some sort of workaround, or people would be doing it already.

    Thanks for your wonderful contribution though.

    All alerts, sounds, and notifications come through my speakers when plugged into the headphone jack and Aux in my truck, don't see why this wouldn't work.

    You could also lay the phone, speaker up, on your pillow. :D

    yes, this should work, obviously. I bought a set of "computer speakers," complete with subwoofer, for my bathroom and just plug my DX in to them (and it works amazingly well.) Any sound going to your headphones will simply play through your speakers.

    Ah, thanks guys awesome news for me! :) I could indeed just place the phone face down lol.. I usually keep the turn over to silence feature on though, and don't like having to change it and put it back. Plus, I have a hard time getting up, and this is gonna be great! :D

    Yep it sure does, and I use this setup every night. I took someone's suggestion and picked me up a mini-speaker (I'm too cheap to purchase the higher end Mini-X II Capsule) and ended up picking this one up from Staples for $10.

    I have to say, I'm impressed how loud this thing can get without major distortion...besides, it's only $10.

    but then you wouldnt be able to look at the locked screen while you were sleeping. :p
    who knows why people dont think of these things, because that is exactly what i do... i just leave my phone face down on the nightstand while i am sleeping to make sure i can hear it ring.
