    Does anyone knows why the alarm does not ring when the phone is turned off. On all my previous phones , the alarm works. May be I need a third party app instead of the stock alarm.
    Thanx.

    None of the Android phones wakes up to ring for alarm (correct me if I'm wrong). Those previous phones you mentioned are Nokia phones (correct me if I'm wrong).

    You're right. After looking at other forums, it looks like it's an android thing. By the way I don't need the phone to wake up, I just need the alarm to ring for various reasons like not to be disturbed at night or in case I don't have the charger and the batterie is low... It seems that the only way is to put it in flight mode. As for the phones, I used to have Sony Ericsson, LG, Samsung and they all ring the alarm when the phone is shut down.

    Android is based on Linux and you need the Kernel to be running for that function. I'm not a programmer to explain how this works, but I know it doesn't work in Android. :p
