    Is there an app to switch off the phone at automatic times? I.e, turns off at midnight so no calls in the night, but switches on before the alarm goes off?

    I'm fairly sure the alarm doesn't currently go off if the phones off, some of my previous phones have been forced on by the alarm.

    You could user 'Timeriffic' to switch to Airplane mode !

    I use it to drop the volume overnight as I'm on call.

    if the phone is "off" as in powered down,there is no way to run an app... thats exactly why the alarm will not work if the phone is off.

    so, no, sorry.

    I think those kinds of apps need root, haven't found any like that yet myself. My Blackberry has a built in on/off timer though I never use it, don't know why Android doesn't have something like that.

    Timeriffic does not need root. Just leave the phone on and set a profile to switch to airplane mode overnight.

    Considering auto flight mode, studiokuma's airplane schedule is small and simple and works, try that one too.

    BRILLIANT!

    I wanted something to enable my phone for an hour each day while I'm on holiday, just in case my houseminder needs to contact me. This is it.

    I've set my phone to Airplane Mode 24-7 except for one hour each evening. Just the ticket. Many thanks Hippo. ;)
