    Snooze alarms did not sound with the phone turned off.

    Please someone tell me if my terminal is broken because as Windows Phone does not do this it will give me something. Always turn off the phone in the night and use the clock alarm. This feature mobile did 10 years ago.

    Is it normal? I have a Nokia Lumia 610 even without upgrading the operating system to the expected WP 7.8

    Thank you.

    Nope, just they way it is designed. No sleep state, just off and on.

    I could be wrong but I thought on the HD7 the alarm would sound even with phone off. I could swear I did that a few times.
