    Loaded virtuous 3 yesterday... Added rotary lock... Woke up this AM to the sound of my alarm going off...

    Imagine my dismay to find there was no way to swipe and silence the alarm. I tried several things before I simply powered down the phone.

    Anyone have any ideas what I need to do to silence this alarm?

    THANKS!

    Hahahaha!!! Same thing this morning! I was about to post exactly the same thing. I'll be trying some alarms from the Marketplace today, if I find a good one, I'll post it.

    Can't turn it off. You can either delete worldclock.apk and install a vanilla desk clock or get something from the market like alarm clock by Pluto. I did the market way and it works.

    This is probably the #1 reported issue with the vanilla-based lock screens. To be absolutely clear, if you intend to use rotary lock, you cannot use the HTC alarm feature.

    I too found this out the hard way some time ago when I was running a vanilla lock screen.
