Alarm not working

    For the past two days my alarm goes off, the phone vibrates, but there's no sound - it's only the noise of the vibrate that wakes me up!

    This is a recent thing, I've checked the volume is up, I don't have a taskiller installed, I've set and reset the alarm sound to go off, but even when I go into settings to change the sound, if I select a new sound it doesn't ring out. However, if I go to change my ringtone, that does make a sound. I've turned the phone on and off, I've deleted and set new alarms to no avail.

    I just don't get it... can anyone help? Software version is 1.0.0.A6288, firmware 1.5 if that helps. Installed new OS about a month ago.

    Same problem here Jo. Has happened to me since updating to 2.1. To make sure my alarm is set, I go into the clock app, alarm, and then deselect the alarm, and then reselect the alarm again. I also go into each alarm and do the same reset on the time, tone, and days to use. Basically, reset the alarm from scratch. This seems to work.

    Are your different alarms different colors? I have two of the three shaded in black, while the third in white. I have yet to figure out what the distinction is.

    I also read in another forum that this "issue" might be happening when you lower your ringer volume to silent, and then back up. Haven't reproduced the issue doing this.

    Use an app called audio manager to check all the system volume levels
