    I thought of that. I don't think I am but I'll test it tonight and pay more attention.

    I installed widget locker and am making a custom lock screen. That may solve the problem.

    Something I did notice actually this morning, is if I swipe down the status bar and choose something else, like an email, it doesn't clear. So it does only happen when unlocking the phone. But as I said I'll check that tonight. It makes sense.

    Is there a way to have the alarm go off when the phone is completely shut down (powered off, but with power supplied)?

    No. The phone is off so it's not going to do anything.

    I have 2 alarms a day set for meds and both alarms were on, I had the phone shut off at work,FRA thing and my evening alarm starts going off. I pulled my phone out and dismissed the alarm and then got a popup on the home screen. It said power off or leave on but in airplane mode or leave on w/o airplane mode. I have had a lot of phones but never had this, well maybe an old BB, but not any recent smartphones.

    I just set an alarm to go off every day and powered off the phone. I then watched the phone power its self on, the alarm go off then get the prompts after unlocking it. Nice to power off at night to charge and still have your alarm wake you in the morn. The phone powered on in airplane mode. The phone was not plugged in.

    Exact same thing I was going to ask. We know that with fast boot disabled the phone is shutdown more completely and I suspect it won't wake to sound the alarm. With Fast boot ON though It wouldn't be un-heard of if the phone could wake itself to sound the timed alarm (though I've never really heard anyone mention it until now).

    How do you format a USB drive with 4.1.2? Just got a micro drive for my HTC One and wanted to format it from the phone. It allows you to unmount it but they've taken away the format ability. Where did they move it to? :thinking:

    since there is no removable memory, seems htc left this out of the stock config.

    just format in computer.

    But out of date ;)

    The 4.2.2 update does let you show a % in the status bar - in addition to, rather than in place of, the normal battery icon.

    With root you have more options, but you can now do this without (as long as you've received the update).

    Not sure if it's a Samsung thing, but both my devices can do it on 4.1.2

    Just tried this and my One powers up (in flight mode), sounds the HTC chime then sounds the alarm. When the alarm is dismissed I get three options :-

    Power off
    Leave flight mode on
    Take flight mode off

    This happens with charger connected and unconnected and fastboot on or off. With fastboot on, the alarm sounds almost immediately after the HTC chime, with fastboot off there is a delay of about 15 seconds.

    It varies from OEM skin to OEM skin. Hadron's analysis of how it works for HTC is spot on (unfortunately for those still on 4.1)

    It turns off all radios so the phone can't make/accept calls, & access the internet over 3G or WiFi (although the WiFi can turned on independently if needed).

    Could someone please help me out? I got my HTC one 2 days ago and I've been having some issues with it. I'm pretty tech savvy, but I had an iPhone 4 before and I've never had an android till now. I'm running the latest os, not sure what it's called. And I'm on the apex launcher which I suck at customizing. So my problem are:

    1. There's no advanced settings! On my friends androids, they all have a ton of settings they can change but I can't even seem to change the display timeout! I don't want to clutter the phone with plug-ins or apps to change some settings so if there was a nice universal app that someone could show me that would be great.

    2. The volume is way too loud. Even on the lowest level, my parents can still hear it from the next room at night. Is there a way to make it go below the standard settings?

    3. My battery does ridiculously fast. I'll charge it over night and I'll get maybe 4-5 hours of moderate/somewhat heavy use... And it also charges pretty slow. I downloaded the snapdragon battery manager like half an hour ago so I'll see how that turns out.

    3. I'm trying to add blinkfeed to apex but I can't find it under the widgets! Also when I go to the widgets under my setting it just takes me to the apex home screen!

    If anyone could help with any of the problems that would be awesome, thanks.

    Not sure how to help with this one. Would need to know what exactly you are trying to change. Everything should show up by clicking on Settings, then scrolling down until you find what you are looking for. Sometimes people can't tell that they can scroll. Just drag your finger up when you are on the settings screen. The screen timeout is found under Display and is called Sleep. When I say Settings, I'm talking about the icon in the app list called Settings. Not sure how you may have been getting to settings before. May also be that you were going into the settings for Apex, not the phone itself. Apex is just a launcher, it doesn't have anything to do with the OS itself.

    I know you said you were on the latest version, but you might check to make sure. I know there was an update pushed out that lowered the overall volume, because it was loud enough to damage the speakers. I never had a problem with it, but I saw a lot of discussions of it. If that isn't the case, then I'm not sure how to fix that for you. I suppose you could install a 3rd party app, like Equalizer or something.

    Make sure the Brightness on your screen is not set to 100%. It will suck the battery down like nobody's business. I turn on the Power Saver function (swipe down from the notification bar, and you should see an option for PowerSaver either off or on.) If you turn PowerSaver on, even if the display is at 100%, it isn't REALLY at 100%. It is noticeably dimmer. Should help with battery life. Beyond that, we would need to look a lot more into your phone and what apps you have, and how you use it, and what kind of signal you get (lower signal means your phone will use more power, at least on 3G, not sure about 4G)

    As far as I know, you can't do that. HTC Widgets only work if you are using Sense for the launcher. If you put something like Apex or Nova launcher on there, you can't use any of the HTC specific widgets, which includes Blinkfeed. The most common solution I have heard from people is to use FlipBoard as a replacement for Blinkfeed. Pretty sure it is free in the Google Play store.

    Not sure how HELPFUL I was, but I tried. :)

    You can use APEX & create a shortcut to BLINKFEED/stock launcher.
    To get back from BLINKFEED/stock launcher to APEX is no problem,just make APEX the default launcher.

    It's not the perfect solution,but,it works,& using a gesture on the dock makes for a fairly smooth transition from APEX to BLINKFEED.

    I have HOLO LAUNCHER HD PRO,very similar to APEX.If you're interested,I'll log back on tomorrow (9/24) to help you get this set up.

    Blinkfeed would onky work on the HTC launcher because it's part of that. Similar to how Go Widgets will only work for Go Launcher.

    And another thing with the battery: It will always drain fast the first couple days you use it. One reason is because you probably can't even put it down due to enjoying the new device, but another reason is the battery hasn't had a chance to enjoy a few good, long charge cycles yet. After about a week or so the battery settles down and you'll start to get more consistant charges out of it.

    That's what I've found with mine anyway.
