    Default Is there a bedside mode

    I like being able to see the time at night.

    Not that I am aware of (at least on the S2 there isn't). The way I found to fix that was to install the bedside mode widget (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndroid.bedside)

    It has all the functionality that my crackberry did although not quite as eloquently (doesn't jump into it when charging etc).

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't quite read your question properly (just the subject line). The widget I linked to allows for screening of calls etc during the night. It also has a clock readout that you can set to stay always on. Although I'm sure there are free apps or other ways of doing this if all you want is a night clock.

    Bedside mode with a BB was awesome - I'm currently trying out Desk Dock and it does an okay job. I've downloaded Bedside as well but haven't took it for a spin yet. Now I just need a horizontal dock.

    I miss bedside mode too. Gentle Alarm has a really good beside mode. It is not free, but worth it.

    1. Who looks at a clock while sleeping?
    2. An alarm clock works just fine.

    I also miss this feature from the BB. I have downloaded Alarm Clock Plus which can be set to start an app upon being plugged in. Not as elegant as a built in solution, but it works.

    I use Dock by Ingloriousapps

    its a clock, i use when in bed, and it can do your facebook and twitter feeds too, i use when on a desk. If you are familiar with webOS exhibition, this is the closest thing to it.

    I hate comments like this.

    1) If I wake up in the middle of the night and want to know what time it is...hey look a clock!

    2) Alarm clock...hmm...yeah I remember those from 10+ years ago before I had a semi-smart phone. We could just say "a camera works fine", "a pager works fine", "a computer works fine", "a gps unit works fine", etc. until we go back to dumb phones with no features because who needs an alarm clock on your phone when you can have one not on your phone! Is that what you had in mind? lol

    It has a bedside mode when i plug it into the desktop dock from Samsung. I'm not sure how to get that to run otherwise. I am not a huge fan of the desktop dock though.

    I hate replies like these.

    Everyone has their preference. I like to use a traditional alarm clock. And yes a camera takes better pictures than a phone with a camera feature. A stand alone GPS works just as well if not better sometimes. Cell signal, data usage. So please consider the options before you hate something so quickly.

    I have previously used Alarm Clock +. It can be configured to start when plugged in and it dims the screen, definatley worth a look.

    I use gentle alarm. i have used it for a long time and it has NEVER failed to wake me up on time. Plus if your battery is dying it will turn the alarm on. handy if you phone dies in the middle of the night (possibly not plugging it in correct power outage etc.)

    Is there a desktop dock for the SGS3? I had one for my SGS2 and it did exactly what you want: drop it in the dock and it dims the screen, and after 5 minutes would display just a low-light digital clock. (in much the same way as putting it in a car dock would put the device in car mode) It was perfect for me, and I ended up throwing away my traditional alarm clock.
