    Unhappy Samsung S5 - Alarm Not Working -

    I can't for the life of me, get the alarm to work on my new S5.

    I've tried clearing / re-creating the alarms multiple times, clearing cache (in clock), etc.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Thank you!

    I think I had a similar issue. I set repetitive alarm for my work days, it worked well in the first day but on the other day I'm pretty sure it didn't work (unless I really had good sleeping, which normally is not the case )

    This has happened to me several times already. I have the same 3 alarms set for M-F and on multiple occasions none of them have gone off

    The S5 is a very polite phone lol. Are you using battery saver?

    I am not. It might be a polite phone, but it is going to be a homeless phone if it doesnt wake me up for work, lol!

    Same problem with S5. I obsessively check my alarm each night, and set several, but they don't go off. Had to use my S4 instead after I was almost late to work twice. Not impressed!

    I recommend Timely Alarm Clock: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bitspin.timely
    Works perfectly, looks beautiful, and has desirable features

    I can confirm that stock alarm works fine when in ultra power saving mode.

    Works for me....but I rely on Alarmy which makes me get out of bed and take a picture to shut it off.

    LoL.
    For me only Alarmy 2048, based on the popular 2048 game, it won't stop ringing until you got the 2048 cube

    Downloaded the App and can't get it working.

    Spoke to Verizon and they informed me that unfortunately they are not aware of a fix other than the "Samsung update coming out in July". . ...

    You don't have to re-download anything. Just go into "Settings" > "Backup and reset" > "Factory data reset." This will COMPLETELY wipe your phone clean. Everything will be gone, as if you just took it out of the box for the first time.

    Right, but what if the software that came with the phone is buggy?

    Anyone figure this out? Too groggy to know specifically which one it is, but if my phone is on silent or vibrate so the emails at night stop waking me up, it silences the alarm volume as well.

    The other possibility is, headphones connected, used to have this problem in an earlier release of cyanogenmod on the galaxy nexus phone, alarm would go through the headphones and by the time I woke up the headphones were generally on the floor or wrapped around my neck like a noose, but either way not in my ears to hear the alarm.

    I'm here this morning because the Verizon s5 somehow lost the setting "sync with network time" and my phone woke me up an hour late today. For once I expected to be at work an hour before everyone else, calling in to sell this hunk of sh*t on eBay and switch back to my galaxy nexus.

    Hi my wife has a Samsug K-Zoom same thing the alarm is silent no matter what system setting or alarm setting we tried them all, that goodness for her old baclberry at least that's the cure for now. Can Samsung do something to fix this bug, our phone is new I know if we take it back they will just reset the thing and 2 Months later it will sing the same song of silence!

    A reply to an old topic in case any s4 users come searching for a solution to this issue.

    I've had this happen several times on my s4 zoom phone and the following steps fix it every time for me:

    Delete the cache and data for the following:
    * Alarm
    * Clock
    * Clock (Digital)

    Do that, then set an alarm for a minute from now's time. The alarm should now go off properly. If not, reset or switch off your phone then try again. Those steps fix it every time for me.

    I've noticed that when the alarm was not going off properly that the "Your alarm will go off x amount of minutes from now" notification wouldn't happen, but after doing the above steps that it would start working again, which is another way of knowing or not if this has fixed it for you.

    After 1,5 year using S5 with cover ,I tried almost everything to the alarm wakes with the closed cover, even another apps, every day I couldn't forget to close the cover, because only works with the cover open, then after search the s5 I find a solution:
    Goto settings - > sound and notifications-> app notifications and scroll to "clock" then turn on the permissions to this app, it works to another apps. Attention the alarm will play even if you turn on "Do not disturb ".
    Please reply if this solution works.

    Default Re: Samsung S5 - Alarm Not Working -

    I do have a fresh new Galaxy S5 mini with ortiginal Samsung flip cover. When the cover is open the alarm works, when it is closed the alarm never works. It is strange. Samsung said they never met this issue. They told me that I should claim the cover. I did it and having a new flip cover i still do have the same problem. So I can not forget to open teh flip every evening otherwise I will not awake up.
    Can you please help me??
