    I am wondering how "loud" the alarm is? I hear there is an alarm, and when the alarm goes off a small speaker in the Touch beeps or bops or something of the sort. I'm wondering if anybody has experienced this alarm yet, and if so, how loud it is, etc. If not, could you check?

    Thanks!

    It's not very loud at all. If you have your iPod touch plugged into some speakers, it does play the alarm through the speakers, so you can make it louder. You can't use your music as an alarm, just the few beeping ones supplied.

    I wouldn't rely on it to wake you up unless you've got some speakers. But I suppose it could be handy for any other time you need an alarm as a reminder.

    If it wasn't annoying you wouldn't wake up, right? :)

    So let me get this straight, you have to have the headphones plugged into the iPod touch for an alarm to sound on the internal speaker?

    No, I don't think that's true.

    When I play around with the alarm app and select various alarms, it plays them for me without the headphones plugged in.

    They're not very loud, but will probably wake up light sleepers. ;)

    its probably uses the same internal speaker that you hear when you use the sound clicker

    Will the alarm go off even though the touch is completely of?
    does it go off when the touch is on sleep?
