    I've been putting mine on airplane mode at night when I charge it...that seems to work just fine, and I have used it as an alarm a few times and this has not let me down.

    Didn't realize this optioin at first. Press the top right button. Then you get the unlock button and volume slider. If you slide the volume to the left to "x" then not only does it turn off the volume but also the screen and vibration. So if you do get calls at night, they don't wake you up. But the alarm still works.
    You can also use the volume to turn the volume all the way down, but the phone will still vibrate if you have that set on.

    I'd like to have my phone off while charging so I can charge it for 24 hours the 1st 3x charging the phone.

    Since it won't stay turned off while plugged in, I can't do that.

    Can't seem to find my quick start guide at the moment, but I seem to recall it saying specifically that the phone will turn itself on while charging. For whatever reason, this sounds like something that was intentional.

    Honestly, it sounds to me like kind of a weird thing to be upset about.

    I'm not upset about it. I would just like the option.

    Wow, I didn't know this was such an issue for some people that they would return their phones?

    I remember vividly in the manual it said, please note: The phone stays on while charging. So this isn't a big deal.

    Sorry to hijack your post but do you guys know if leaving the phone to charge all night affects the battery somehow? I had heard that if you "overcharged" the battery it would be less efficient.

    no no no no no.

    These batteries do better if charged as often as possible. They are smart enough to stop charging(watch the battery indicator when charging) as to not keep charging when full.

    yeah I was going to say this, what is the point in charging for 24 hours when it turns the charge off after it is fully charged.
