Hello and greetings! I ventured here after just getting frustrated with my alarm settings. Hello??? Why isn't the alarm sound another panel in the settings??? This was crazy to set it ONLY within the alarms. Anyway, thanks to the forum, the volume was turned way down in the alarm settings. Fixed that and nothing more to complain about. It was just annoying. I've had my HTC Hero for almost 3 months and absolutely LOVE IT!!! I previously had a Sprint Instinct. No comparison. I like instant access to settings/switches to turn functionality on and off (i.e. network, bluetooth, etc) and am always looking for great android apps that assist in daily activities. Have a great day!
