    When you silence the ringer does the alarm still sound? Also when you turn the phone off, does the alarm still sound.

    Two features I have on my SE which I like.

    Yes it will sound when ringer is off.

    but it will not sound when the phone is turned off.

    When you silence the ringer the alarm does still sound.

    When you turn the phone off it won't sound for anything, calls or alarms.

    Not sure if you are aware, but the iPhone's sleep is different to any other phone I've had. If you press the sleep button the screen turns off and the keypad locks. Alarms still sound and calls can be received. If you want to check the phone's status (missed calls, texts, the time) you press any button and the screen lights up showing you this and asking if you would like to unlock.

    Hope this helps

    I actually overslept today...

    Hey Matey,
    I overslept because I was too thick to realise that turning it off means "OFF"...

    Gosh, sometimes I am blonde...very...
    cheers

    Thing is, on SE phones if you've enabled an alarm and you switch your phone off, the alarm still sounds. As long as silencing the ringer still lets the alarm sound on an iPhone, I'm happy.:p

    The only thing the little switch does is silence the ringtone.
