    Can't you just use your phone's inbuilt alarm clock

    You could try using iCal to open up Skype at a certain time every day, and then have it run an AppleScript that tells Skype to call you.

    I, too, am confused as to why you really want to do this, rather than just having your phone wake you up with the alarm. You say the ringer is loud enough to wake you, and the phone alarm and ringer should be the same volume...
