    Default Alarm Clock is no longer dependable.

    I use my the native alarm clock to wake me up in the morning, but on more than one occasion its left me out to dry. I'll set multiple alarms and nothing.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    I haven't had any issues so far. Do you use a custom alarm sound?

    No issues here either. I have different alarms for different days through out the week and so far it has been perfect.

    Are you using any task killers?

    Yes, this could be culprit. When I first bought my og Evo I used a Task killer for the first week or two and learned quickly that it would kill the clock app and unless I opened up the app again before going to bed, it wouldn't go off.

    Very good call! But, I'm anti task killer. I don't even have an anti virus.

    Same problem here and no Task Killer. The alarm just stopped working two days ago. Probably some app update. Thankfully I use a back up alarm since this has happened before.

    I got them working again by deleting all my set alarms and recreating them.

    Yeah, I've found that unchecking and rechecking seems to be effective, but it's a pain to do this every night.

    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.

    if unchecking and rechecking fixes it. are you sure you have it on repeat? pretty sure when you add an alarm it defaults to the next time only. and you have to edit the repeat

    My alarm is not dependable. No task killers. Set to repeat. It might play one note then turn itself off. Factory reset did not fix the issue.

    No problems with mine. I have it set to wake me up 3 times every morning, Mon-Fri. Never failed. I even have one that I set almost every Saturday morning to go fishing.

    Well, I'm sure broadcastjunkie will slam me for getting off topic, but I might suggest this: If you get up at the same time on certain days, you can always use Tasker to play a song or make a noise based on a calendar entry. This is what I use for my morning alarms. When I know I'm not going to need to wake up to an alarm on a given day, I simply delete that day's calendar entry in Google, then I don't have to worry about turning the alarm back on after the day I skip. Works well for me. SVOX's UK English Victoria wakes me up every morning with a custom message.

    Use my alarm clock several times every single day... No issues

    I don't have any issues either but I would suggest Alarm Clock Plus. It seems to be more reliable than the stock alarm app and I have never had an issue with this app for the past 3 phones. I am not normally the one to post an answer to a question you didn't ask (like are there any good alarm clock apps), but this might solve your issue and put your mind at ease.

    in the stock alarm, you can go into settings and set alarm volume. it's a different setting than the ringer/media setting. have you tried that?

    this was my problem, the volume for the clock app was at zero.

    Ugh, it stopped working again. Think Daylight Saving Time could be the culprit?
