    Have you tried going to the application manager in Settings and finding the clock app and clear it's cache?

    I just checked my AT&T S5 Active and if you have it show System Apps by clicking the 3 dot menu in Application Manager, there are 3 clock apps and you can clear app cache and data on two of them.
    Only other thing I can think of would be to try a cache wipe in recovery.

    Do you know what would happen if I disabled the Clock app?

    I played around with mine and disabled one and Forced Stopped the other two. Rebooted the phone after a few minutes and the ones I forced Stopped, restarted. It's not my daily driver so I don't mind experimenting.
    You can try and see what affect it has and enable it if needed and do a restart.

    If you pull down on the drop-down menu and tap on the alarm icon, does it take you to the clock app?

    No. When I pull down the menu, there in nothing regarding the clock app., only the "Select keyboard" tab.

    That is strange. If you click on the 3 vertical dot menu in the bar with the Samsung clock app message, what options do you have?
    I'm gonna play around with my S5 Active some more and see what I can find.

    Guess that was just a email alert.
    Kinda got me stumped. Last thing I got would be to set a new alarm then delete it.
    Hopefully someone more familiar with Samsung devices will chime in with a solution.
    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    There is always the dreaded factory reset.
    If it's that annoying and you don't mind the hassle of setting it back up.
    It sucks that it is a system app and you can't uninstall/reinstall without root.
    Package Disabler Pro at the Play Store will let you disable it and any other pre installed app that you can't normally disable. Might be worth checking in to but it's a paid app.

    Thanks. I might look into that. I guess for now I'm just stuck with the icon until someone can come up with a solution.

    Hi, it looks like you might have to root it to get rid of it, easy to do and gives you more control over your phone. Phil
