    I wanted to use this phone as an alarm clock and use it in landscape mode using the kickstand. Is there a way to do this normally or does an app have to be made to use the accelerometer or something?

    Android 2.1 has Desk Clock so you will be able to do this.

    Make sure not to accidentally slam the "alarm's" snooze button in the morning and break its stand.

    does Desk Clock, or other similar apps, work in landscape mode (or do they go into landscape mode when tilted?)

    I like Kaloer Clock from the market better than Desk Clock.

    I use my current phone as an alarm clock, but hate getting woken up by texts or drunk calls from friends at 3:00 in the morning. Does anyone know if the Evo would support turning off the ringer and still leaving the volume on for the alarm? It seems like a level of customization that we should be able to expect, but my current (three-year-old) phone doesn't allow for that.

    Blackberry has a bedside mode where everything is silent except the alarm. I have mine set to go into bedside mode whenever I place it in the charging dock (or on any charger for that matter). I would love to have this same functionality when I put the EVO on the charger.

    Yes, my BB Storm does this. I can turn off all notifications and just have the phone ring if we get a phone call. It never fails if I forget to set this I always get those emails at 4am. (BING) I hope this Evo does this as well.

    i know i've heard of an app that will silence all of your texts and e-mails at night... can't think of it at the moment.

    There is no app needed. If you place the phone in silent, the alarm will still ring through it.

    But is it Locale that you are thinking of?

    But will phone calls? I am a former blackberry user as well, and loved the option to simply-quickly set the phone so that the only noise it would make at night was phone calls and the alarm. Is there a way to do this with the EVO?

    Wow, old thread....lol

    Check out an app called Simple Sound Profile. I also came from a BB and missed not having the sound profiles in Android.

    Here is the QR for it:

    Go into your volume controls and you have 4 separate volume choices: ringer, media, notifications and last but not least ALARM. turn the other three all the way down and crank up the Alarm... easy to do no app needed

    Quick Profiles. Works well. Stock click will go landscape and work as an alarm

    Is there an app that let's only certain calls get through when it's on silent mode? I use the alarm but I turn it to silent mode to silence everything except the alarm.

    Setting Profiles will do that.

    No need for any extra apps - HTC Desk Clock has night mode and alarms ring when the phone is in silent mode:

    COOOOOOL! The emails an such dont bug me anymore, at least not on my pre. Hmm, maybe I should try to mute them now.

    I use mine for the alarm as well. You can turn the phone's volume off and it will still ring.
