    When I travel, I use it as an alarm clock, but I don't use a dock. I just use the clock app.

    I do.

    I use My Alarm Clock. But I don't care for the alarms in that app (so far it's the only night stand clock I really prefer to use) and the buttons are too small when you are fumbling in the morning to turn it off, so I use the standard iPhone alarms for that.

    My iPhone is plugged into an extension cord ever night (no dock) and I use a business card holder to hold my iPhone (on it's side). My Alarm Clock has landscape mode (which I prefer for a clock) so this all works for me.

    You can set the clock so that double-tapping the screen turns on the LED, which I rely on frequently as it's usually dark when I get up.

    I use the default clock app and the elevation dock to charge it overnight.

    Default clock app. Using a song which is loud and hard to wake me up. No dock just with normal speaker.

    I can't stand all the commotion my phone sends my way. I know I could upgrade to IOS 6.x and get the new "leave me alone" setting, but I get so many SMS messages from services and apps and all sorts of friend chatter makes me crazy. If my phone wakes my wife for whatever malfunction, I'm in deep.

    So, I use a circa 1995 digital indiglo alarm clock. It's very annoying and never fails to wake me up.

    I don't for the fear of throwing it away when am half sleep and the alarm starts buzzing lol. I use my trusty old Nokia as an alarm clock-tough as a rock :cool:

    Every morning the standard clock app wakes me up; just connected to the charger. Until now it never failed. Sometimes I wish it did ;)

    I use the default clock app, has been amazing so far. I don't know if I want to risk my ears with the dock, since my ears already get blasted(alarm tone is going the distance by rock, the part in the middle).

    I've been using the default app for the last five years.

    It failed me the one time when the clocks changed but I've also got a DAB radio which acts as a backup so I still managed to get up on time.

    Exactly why I use the default alarm clock. The buttons are big enough to press. I use an annoying alarm to make sure I wake up because if it wakes HER up I've let it go too long and I'm also in deep! :eek:
