alarm auto on off lumia 610

The alarm does not work unless I leave the phone on all night. Is there an 'auto on off' setting that will switch the phone on when the alarm is due?

No there isn't, but why not leave phone in "Airplane" mode overnight?

That feature does not exist as the phone needs to be on to sound the alarm, like most other modern phones.

What you need to do is set the alarm then put the phone into flight mode. Flight mode uses very little power, you won't be disturbed and your alarm will still sound. You can find find flight mode in the settings or you can get an app from the market that will let you pin a tile for flight mode to the start screen for quick accesss.

For example this app:

No.. If you don't want to be disturbed with the phone being ON, put it to 'flight mode' .. The phone must be left ON for the Alarm to ring ...

Re: alarm auto on off lumia 610

Thanks for the replies. Putting it into flight mode doesn't really seem like a resolution because I'm not on a plane and the phone is still on! Even my first Nokia phone twenty years ago had a useful alarm function. Disappointing.

Re: alarm auto on off lumia 610

Unfortunately it's just the way phones are nowadays and nothing can be done to change it. iPhones and most androids are the same requiring them to be on to sound an alarm.

That is a particularly unhelpful comment and vastly wide of the truth. This is the first phone I have ever had that does not automatically switch on for the alarm.

I didn't say invalid I said unhelpful. Something could quite easily be done about it. Do you work for Nokia?

Nokia cannot change this behaviour in the windows phones, you need to complain to Microsoft if it bothers you that much.

There is nothing that can be done to help you on this forum so further debate about this here is pointless.

Good, was just adding facts so that you know this isn't a Nokia issue or a problem that will be fixed.

Glad you were finally able to understand and calm down without further false claims of people being "unhelpful".

Re: alarm auto on off lumia 610

I had nothing to claim down about I just found the tone and attitude rather frustrating, as I do yours. If you wish to spend your time helping people then well done and thank you but it does not give you the right to be condescending and rude. Equally, comments like 'glad you were finally able to understand' only serve to provoke aggressive responses, which presumably is you intent. Happy New Year

You obviously took it the way you wanted to read it, was no attitude from me at all. You seriously need to calm down and move on. I provided you with an answer and a quick workaround and you gave me hostility in return.

Nothing more to be said here.
