    Default Alarm app that turns the phone on!

    Hi all,

    Hopefully this hasn't been covered.
    I've noticed the stock android alarm will not turn the phone on and neither will Gentle Alarm.
    Frustrating considering odd 3310's used to have this feature.

    can anyone suggest anything?

    Thanks

    Matt

    PS, nice forum!

    Think about it. The phone is off, so no app can run. So the alarm app can't run. So it can't turn the phone on.

    In order for an app to "turn the phone on", the phone has to be running - looking as if it's off, but not really off.

    Normallly, I think the alarm app cannot turn the phone on.

    Not true. I just came from blackberry. I turned phone off every night and the alarm would turn phone on every morning.

    You are also comparing two completely different devices...

    unless things have changed from what I remember when you shut a blackberry off you are really putting it into a low power state, that is why you have to pull the battery to get a true reboot. I have not had a blackberry since the OG storm so things may have changed from what I remember

    Why not simply leave the phone on?

    because, sometimes it make that annoying beeping fully-charged sound when I leave the phone on. And it cannot last through the day if I leave it on all night without charging.

    I'm pretty sure you can turn off the fully charged beep. On my Droid 4, it's in Settings/Sounds. Uncheck the box that says Battery Full Notification.

    My phone keeps turning off at night and thus skips the alarm. Is there a way to stop this?

    Please Clarify what you mean by phone off...

    turn screen off and "sleep" is normal and shouldn't interfere with alarm.

    Turn phone off (so you go through boot to turn back on) is not normal unless you initiated it and should be investigated

    Hold on a minute. Has everyone neuralyzed at Android? Every phone ever made pre- (so called) 'Smart phone' era had this ability STOCK.
