I just woke up 2 and a half hours late.
Went over to my iPhone, pressed "OK" on three messages I'd received (SMS).
THEN the alarm started going off. WHAT THE HELL.
:mad:

Report that to Apple ASAP! I use this as my alarm also and that would really, really suck.

Alarm supersceded the sms

I just tested this:
1st the new text message window appeared,
2nd the phone timed out and went to sleep
3rd the alarm then sounded as scheduled.
4th I stopped the alarm and
5th the red (1) appeared on the sms icon on the homescreen.

This is why I always set two alarms. I've had a few mornings where, for some reason or another, my cell phone (not my iPhone alarm, haven't yet used that) or my computer alarm didn't go off. Honestly, I should probably just invest in a dedicated alarm clock. :eek:
