    I know dismissing an alarm will disable it for the next alarm, presumably in the next 2 or less hours. I'm just wondering why the **** does it turn off the whole alarm entirely? I turned up to work four hours late because of this scuffed-*** system.

    Was the alarm set to repeat daily, weekly or otherwise. You can't set an alarm for 4pm and expect it to go off everyday at 4pm without selecting some kind of repeating schedule. Dismissing an alarm is turning it off for that alarm time. So the alarm goes off at 4pm you wake up and hit dismiss no more alarm. On the other hand you hit snooze and it goes off again a few minutes later. Dismiss had nothing to do with tomorrow, other alarms that are set or anything else, just the current sounding alarm. Make sure you set a schedule if you want daily alarms.

    I agree with Vidjunky. You have to make sure you understand how the system works before you start blaming it.

    I use the in-built alarm on my LG V20. If the alarm rings and I tap "dismiss", rather than "snooze", then the alarm will not ring at all in the future.

    What phone do you have? What alarm app are you using? If it's a stock alarm app, such as what I use, then "dismiss" may indeed shut off the alarm with no further notifications.

    LG got it wrong if yours works that way. How are you to silence an alarm if not with the dismiss option so that it will continue to work on the schedule you set? Is there a third option, dismiss, snooze, silence? Just so we're on the same page and I'm fully understanding you. You set an alarm for daily at 7am, hit dismiss once and the alarm goes away forever? And this is with the stock app?

    I'm guessing Laura Knotek is talking about an alarm that was set as a one-time only, rather than on a repeat schedule, as you had previously suggested, @VidJunky.

    That is correct. I use single alarms, since my schedules vary each day, so I don't wake up the same time each day.
