    Hi there,

    I have a 4S and it is my first iPhone.
    I suppose my quesiotn is known to you all since iOS 1.0 so it will be a detail for you to answer.

    Anyway, I always found that testing alarms on phones was always a pain in the ass, you always have to wait at least a minute to see how it behaves. And the behavior when snoozing (or not) is even harder to test.

    Anyway, here it goes:
    • When alarms are set, will the Vibrate/Ring switch (the physical one on the side of the phone) disable or not the alarm from ringing. I do not mean to use this as a way to disable alarms I just want to know if I need to be extra careful every night not to leave the phone in vibrate
    • When an alarm rings, what happens if I do not hit snooze nor if I stop it. How long does it keep ringing?
    • How about the volume of the ringing? does it necessarily match the volume of the regular phone ringing?
    • How long is the snooze delay? what happens if another alarm triggers off while a first one was being snoozed?

    Thank you all!!

    Next time, post it in the iPhone forum, this has nothing to do with iOS 5. Also, search please. This is all already out there on the forums. :)
