    Ok folks why we are not able to set our alarm 2 or 3 days in advance with our iPhones? I believe the Samsung Galaxy does. I would like to see those changes in our iPhones.

    You can set a calendar alert a few days ahead. I think the purpose of the alarm is to have it to off every day to get you up, or something similar.
    You could also use the reminders app to accomplish what you're describing.

    You can set the alarm to repeat, pick the day you need the alarm to go off.

    I also wish it can some customizable settings, i.e. weekly, monthly, every other day. Yeah, I know I can do a calendar entry, but using an alarm is preferred.

    Think of it as most alarm clocks next to your bed. They go off everyday at the same time unless there is a setting to stop it on the weekends.

    There is a weekly option.


    And it also has the skip weekend option.

    Yeah, I think I know all the "options" it has currently. Two things I would really are one that goes off the same day separated by hours, like 12 hours or one that goes off every other day.
