Clock Alarm - Disable Vibration? Sound Only?

    Hello All,

    I'm just wondering if there was a way to disable the vibration feature on the alarm clock (without removing it from the phone whilst ringing).

    I love the fact that I can now choose a song to wake up to - but REALLY dislike that the phone vibrates while it plays the song (I'm one of those people that likes a song faded into when I'm waking up - I don't like getting jarred awake by the annoying sound of my phone vibrating on my night stand)...

    Any ideas? Comments? Suggestions?

    There are two vibrate settings: vibrate on ring and vibrate on silent. If you're willing to turn the second one off, and have your phone on silent, you can get the behavior you want. The alarm will sound (even though phone is set to silent), but no vibrate.

    Otherwise, I'd check into a 3rd party alarm app.

    Ahh - thanks for the response - that's what I was afraid of.

    I actually used only third party alarm apps until they each became unreliable in their own ways. The iOS alarm app is definitely the most reliable that I've tried - however, it's limited in features.

    The vibration for the alarm bothers me too. I don't sleep with my phone so it's not like vibrating will help me wake up any better.

    How useless is it to wake to a song if it vibrates constantly? It seems to defeat the whole purpose. I still need vibrate on silent and vibrate on ring, so turning them on and off is just too much of a pain for this feature. I will stick with Alarm Clock Pro until Apple fixes this.

    Disabled vibrate for notifications for phone and vibration was finally gone from alarm.
