    Never had a problem with mine in over a month of using - are you sure you have a HTC tattoo

    There are issues with the HTC Hero but that is running 1.5 android whereas Tattoo is running 1.6 android

    i lock the screen and the alarm does go off i had a problem when i actually turn the device off the alarm did not go off. I dont know if there is a power on feature that needs to be turned on for when it is off.

    I had exactly the same problem when turning on for the first time, and it was also solved by restarting.

    Hi guys. I have a problem with the alarm as well. I can set the alarm, but there are no sound at all. I have opened the volume while I'm on the alarm menu and it's max. It doesn't matter which alarmsound I chose, it's still silent. I have had vibration on as well and it vibrates like crazy, but is still silent.
    When it's time the alarm does pop up on the screen (also while locked) and everything looks right, but it's just no sound. Any ideas what I might do?

    Wow... I just found the answer (and feel really dumb by the way). If anyone else have had this problem you need to set the volume on each alarm sound. It doesn't help to set the volume on max while you're on the alarm menu. The volume is mute on all the alarmsounds for some reason.

    Dear iamina,

    Thank you, Thank you, thank you...

    I had the same problem with my alarms. They would go off like clockwork, vibrate if I had them set that way, but they would not ring (make any sound). I contacted Sprint tech support and they told me to do a bunch of stuff (remove battery, wait, reinsert, then goto About Phone/System Updates/Update Profile) that did not work.

    Of course, the simplest solution is usually the best one, just set the ringer volume as you suggested. Thank you again.

    Hi everyone!

    I have two questions.

    1. When i set the alarm on my HTC Tattoo and then shut off the phone, it doesn't wake me. How do i do so that it wakes me, when the phone is off?

    2. Does anyone know where to find smileys for the HTC? Can I find them on the marketplace, perhaps?

    -Jenny :)
