    The alarm does not sound on my s5.

    It's the generic clock.

    It works if I set an alarm one minute away but normal work alarm does not.

    I've tried deleting data and cache but no luck.

    Thoughts?

    It's quite ridiculous to be honest. Brand new phone and the darn alarm don't work. Having to use my old iPhone as an alarm...

    I had a weird issue where the alarm would just dismiss itself as soon as I picked up the phone. I poured through the settings and didn't see anything for that, so I just switched to a 3rd party alarm app which seems to work fine.

    With a 3rd party alarm app does the app have to always be running for it to work... by that I mean if the app is closed and I forget to start it back up before I go to bed will it still work?

    I had this problem the first morning I had the phone, not been a problem since though.

    Think it may have been where the phone restored settings from my S3.

    Try deleting your alarms and start from scratch.

    It's a brand new phone! Why am I deleting a generic clock? It's quite ludicrous

    Nope, phone needs to be powered on, but the app doesn't have to be launched. I believe most of the alarm apps use the API for the alarm, but make the interface more pretty.

    May sound silly, but check the system and notification volumes!!!
    I use Dock Clock Plus and it always works! As long as the phone isn't powered down the clock shows on the phone and the alarm goes off! It has it's own volume, customizable alarm tone, starts the clock app at preset time of day and even sounds a different alarm dependent on your location, i.e. when I'm home the alarm goes of 4:00 AM, and when I'm on the road it goes off at 5:00 AM! Great App!

    Cheers

    I'm not finding these particular replies much use.

    1) why should we have to install third party apps? It's really poor show that the generic clock does not work. In fact, it's ridiculous. This phone is 550 sim free and it's less than 14 days old, yet it'd already experiencing problems.

    2) I installed droid alarm and it also doesn't work. If these apps are just different GUIs then I'm not surprised they don't work.

    I'm really hoping for a technical solution, not suggestions to use third party apps, which in this case also don't work.

    It should be shocking for Samsung that I'm having to rely on my iPhone to wake me up.

    I forgot I had a wedding to attend so missed my appointment. Will go in this Saturday but it's been fixed in part by a third party app.

    Now Timely is no longer working for me... alarm did not go off this morning and under the notifications it says it dismissed alarm after 45 minutes but that was only after I opened Timely to see if for some reason the alarm turned off. I actually have 3 alarms set to go off 10 minutes apart and none of them went off... very frustrating.

    Strange, the alarms are working perfectly each time on my phone. When it doesn't alert you is it not alerting at all, like not even an alert in the notification panel?

    It does not show any notification until I open Timely... once I open timely all of the sudden my notifications appear and it says "Alarm dismissed after X minutes" x - being how ever long has passed since the alarm was supposed to go off.

    My wife sleeping right next to me has the exact same phone purchased on the same day and has not had this issue at all... I am very annoyed and this is not a good look for Android with this being my first attempt at leaving iphone and coming to droid. So far not happy.
