    This seems to be something easy to figure out, but Im having a problem. When I set the alarm and test it, it works fine. Then I set it for 5:45 Am Monday thru Friday. Come 5:45AM and nothing!! There is really not much to set up, but the damn thing is not working. Any ideas?
    Also the sound quality of the phone is not very good, i understand there is a procedure to improve it, can anyone provide me with it? :icon_eek:

    I had the same issue before and fixed it.

    Do you have a task killer app installed on your Droid? If so, don't let it kill the alarm clock or it won't ring. I have Advanced Task Killer and whenever I'd kill the alarm clock app, it wouldn't ring.

    Do you have your phone in silent mode at night? Go into the alarm clock settings and make sure the box is checked so the alarm still goes off in silent mode

    Thanks. If I kill the app (Task Killer) do I need to manually kill apps regularly to free memory?

    No, you do not need 3rd party task killers to free memory, Android does that for you.

    If you're unsure of how to use a 3rd party task killer without screwing your phone up, just uninstall it.

    you have to uninstall it through Settings> Applications> ATK

    i have ATK just to make sure my browser or facebook closes, i never really touch anything else.

    First most common problem: You have a task killer that's killing the alarm app before it alarms.

    Second most common problem: In alarm clock / settings, ensure "Alarm in silent mode" is enabled.

    Third most common problem: When you set your alarm, make sure the icon appears in the status bar. If it doesn't, you need to go manage applications / and delete data from the alarm clock app. And obviously try again.
