No, the Alarm will always sound, no matter what (if it's set).With the ringer switched to off and the alarm clock on, I still get the alarm sound. I always thought the ringer switch would turn off all sounds.
Am I missing a step?
so you cannot tell it to go totally silent then? it vibrates in silent mode?By default, when you get a call, iPhone vibrates whether it’s set to ring or silent mode. l.
From the manual...
When set to silent mode, iPhone doesnt ring or sound any alerts or sound effects (alarms set using Clock do sound). By default, when you get a call, iPhone vibrates whether its set to ring or silent mode.
If iPhone is set to ring mode, you can silence a call by pressing the Sleep/Wake button or one of the volume buttons once. Press a second time to send the call to voicemail.
