    I set an alarm last night to be waken up at 6:40am this morning. I woke up at 6:40am exactly, but my alarm on my phone wasn't going off. When I woke the phone up, the alarm wasn't even set (i.e. the alarm icon wasn't in the status bar and the clock app showed it set to off). I'm 100% sure I turned the alarm on last night.

    Has anyone else had issues with set alarms? I'm an extremely heavy sleeper so there's a slim chance that it did in fact go off and I swiped it while still asleep to shut it off, but I don't think that's the case since I woke up naturally at the exact time it was supposed to go off.

    My phone wakes me up every morning so I really hope iOS 7 didn't botch something with the alarms.

    How do you set up your alarm?

    Do you create an album then check off all the days?
    Also make sure next to your alarm its green so its ON.

    If you do it correctly, to the left of your battery there will be a little clock icon.
    That is how you can double check to make sure the alarm is set to on.

    you can also set up a back up alarm that goes off 5 minutes after as well.

    lastly when creating an alarm make sure you have a song or tone picked and its not set to NONE.

    1. Did you try rebooting the phone?

    2. if you set a manual alarm for a minute from now, will that alarm go off?

    3. Were these alarms set up on IOS 6? If so have you tried deleting them then resetting them as new?
