    Not sure if it's a setting, or a bug. But I use my iPhone alarm for waking up daily. It's loud and gets me out of bed nicely.

    Recently the phone alarm goes off daily as programmed, but I can't use the Slider to turn it off, and my touching the snooze nothing happens (screen seems non responsive) The only way it seems, to turn off the alarm is by the silence button at the toop, or even resetting the phone (home button and silence button at same time) has anyone else had experience with the alarm?

    I use mine for an alarm clock too, and I have not had this problem.

    Just try a restore, and if problems persists, take to Apple.

    I have had this problem and others with the alarm clock app. Sometimes the alarm wont go off, and then when i unlock it later on it will go off, really weird. I am hoping that the 2.0 software upgrade will add the ability to manage the alarms and sort them, kinda like how you can change the city order in the weather settings.

    Are you powering down (holding down the top button then sliding to power off on the screen) your iPhone at night? I set an alarm and did that, and my alarm did not go off.

    I hope this helps.

    no, my phone is on,

    It did it again this morning, I had to do a reboot of the phone this morning to get the alarm to shut off. I have not tried a reset through iTunes, maybe I will....

    The problem is not the alarm going off (it goes off, on time, daily.) it's shutting the noise off after I'm awake :)

    Mine is doing exactly the same thing- only started a few days ago- can only make it stop by holding the power button down! Let me know if you find an answer? X

    The same thing has been happening to me ....not every day but at least 3 or 4 times a week and the only way I can get it to turn off is to use to power button and power it off then back on. It’s annoying as hell. Must be a bug or glitz of some sort

    Not quite, the thread was revived in 2010... So the record for 10 years is still not broken.

    "Hey Siri, turn off the alarm". This assumes your phone is not 10 years old.
