The alarm clock doesn't work when my phone is swiched off.
Does anybody know how to set it to work when the phone is swiched off.
I don't want to leave the phone swiched on all night.

Hi jwhunt,

I think it's pretty logic that when your phone is switched off, that it doesn't sound the alarm. It's not running in standby mode or something, it really is completely off. So the alarm application cannot run at all ...
Either you have to leave your phone on or you'll have to buy a regular alarm clock ...

Hi SkySnake

I wouldn't say that's it's pretty logic, that when the phone is swiched off that the alarm doesn't work. I have had a number of phones over the years and my last one being a Samsung. They all worked while swiched off. That's is why I asked my question.

Completely agree here my last phone you could have it switched off and the alarm would work, you have to keep the Samsung on for the alarm to work and thats such a shame when you dont want to.

This is my first Samsung device.

I reckon other Samsung phones have an alarm power-up function, which turns on the phone when your alarm goes off. The Function Guide (which likely is an overview of general Samsung device capabilities) downloadable here http://www.samsungmobile.com.sg/support/softwaremanuals/software.do?phone_model=GT-I9000&sw_type=UM indicates as much. See the section titled "Alarms".

For some reason, however, they did not include this function in the Galaxy S. Strange decision, really, given that it's a relatively battery-intensive device and would have greatly benefited from having it.

hi all,
I've noticed that, so I thought disconnecting the phone from the network will save some battery but the flight mode looks like it's not customizable (pls someone tell me I'm wrong) ended up waking up 1h late since the phone had no sounds on while on "flight mode".

not gonna do it again... but I need to test this carefully before saying it's andoid's fault Sticking out tongue

Hello guys,

I do think its is a shame, that the alarm does not work while the phone is switched off. I got late for work today because of that. I too had other phones being Nokia mostly and one Samsung - all of them had the function to turn the alarm on , even when the phone is powered off. See the clock continues to work even when the phone is off, so WHY does it not turn ON the alarm ???
A friend has the HTC Desire. It turns off when its battery charge is low. But it continues to sound the alarm and even sound when emails come in.
So why the heck , Samsung Galaxy does not do it ? And dont flame that if I turned off my phone I meant not to hear a sound from it. I do hope this gets fixed, or combined with the clumsy GPS ... Ima gonna switch to HTC , which would be a shame. .. Get your act together , Samsung !

That the alarm clock does not work if the Galaxy S is "sleep" mode (if. screen off) is just laughable - Samsung cannot be serious. This bug/error is completely inexcusable – what use is it then. If you leave it on, there is no battery to sound the alarm in the morning. Just another indication that Galaxy S is just a hype and no serious tool.

The alarm DO work in "Sleep" mode. I just woke up this morning with its alarm.

There may be something wrong with your device. Check your settings or apps that you've install, whether anyone having conflict with your alarm.

I am having a problem with the alarm as well. But the problem is not consistent. The first night I got it, I tested the alarm by setting it for a few minutes ahead, and it worked. But in the morning it did not go off. The phone was asleep, but not off. Then I checked "smart alarm" and it went off OK. I thought it was a bug that the alarm only worked if "smart alarm" was checked. OK, fine, stupid bug I could live with.

However, now 3 weeks later, suddenly for the past 2 days the alarm does not go off in the morning even with Smart Alarm checked. I thought maybe it was a problem created because now I have the habit to manually put my phone to sleep with the side button, whereas before I let it sleep according to system settings.

But when I test it, setting the alarm for 15 minutes in future, it works no matter what ... so now I am left with an untrustworthy alarm - I travel A LOT and have had no problems with any mobile phone alarm in the past 10 years - only this one. I HATE to miss a flight etc. due to untrustworthy alarms - is anyone else having a problem like this intermittently ?

I agree with the others - it is absolutely baseless and no excuse to have a phone alarm not work - the computer's internal clock works if the battery has any life at all, whether the phone is on or off or asleep -- so this must be an issue either with firmware or bad software. I am a programmer and know the internal clock is a very low level part of the OS - you should be able to wake up the phone or turn it on from an alarm application (as all other mobile phones have done in the past - even dumb ones could do via firmware).

I find the same problem happens sometimes on calendar item alarms or alarms I create that are far into the future such as an alarm which should go off only on next Saturday and today is Monday - sometimes they go off, sometimes not. That is just crazy and unacceptable. I love this phone UI and other fun things -- but what is the point of syncing up calendars, appointments, having all the choice of alarm wake up tones etc. AND THEN IT DOES NOT GO OFF ONLY  *SOMETIMES* ?? Has anyone found a solution or know for certain what causes it ? It has something to do with length of time the phone is asleep and *maybe* also if you make it sleep manually instead of let it go to sleep by the system settings ...

I have gt-i9000 2.1 update firmware, kernel 2.6.29 root@se-s602 #2 , Build eclair.i9000buig2 from French provider SFR. I have not rooted it, but if that will solve this problem I will do it ... Does anyone know if rooting can solve this ?

Also, I do not have a PC, I have a MacBook, so I do not use any software for the PC to phone synching, and just connect to the phone on my Mac using Doubletwist (which already sucks as there is no way to do an easy sync to calendars, and must go through stupid Google intermediary mail which I also find dumb - but at least I can get my photos and videos and music easily off and on the phone from the Mac. So - can rooting help so that even on my MacBook I can do more things or am I stuck because I use Mac ?? And also how can I ever upgrade firmware or software if I do not have a PC - can one do this by downloading updates straight onto the phone or must I borrow a PC of a friend to do any upgrades ?

I totally agree! For me it's a reason not to buy the Samsung Galaxy S.

@Samsung guys:
- Can you tell us if this is a hardware problem or a software problem
- In case of a software problem: When will it be solved?

Same problem. Alarm goes off, vibrates etc but no sound is emitted. And yes the alarm settings do have sound selected and volume up.

I think this is more of an Android issue.  My G1,  HTC desire and Galaxy S,  all fail to power on for the alarm,  yet my n95,  5800 would both power up for alarm.

Putting in flight mode works fine.  However the alarm in general has been pretty unreliable,  and got worse since upgrading to Gingerbread.

I use Alarm Clock Plus.  Free on market,  very good,  every option you could want,  and more importantly never fails to go off (as long as you not powered off the phone)
