I saw what Truckerdout had written about turning off the "Volume" option when you set the alarm. Right under it in small print it says "Use increasing volume". I turned that off and that is what worked for the alarm.
Is that with the stock alarm? I don't see that setting.
I did notice that when I set the max volume for the alarm, it's way louder than the max volume for the timer. Anyone else have the same result?
before the new software release I used a very obnoxous ring tone called Mindblowing_Loud that sounded like a siren...at least I was able to hear the phone ring.
Now, since the software release I am using the built in Crayon Rock ringtone and I can hear it ring just fine.
Not sure if its any louder or I got accostomed to its ability. Either way, it is now acceptable to me.
I must admit that this phone is like having a PC on my hip at all times....totally happy.
