ok. so the alarm is what i use to wake up on my iphone. it's always worked for me and never fails.
i was searching online about alarm type stuff for windows phone. and someone suggested a separate volume for alarms.
so like on the iphone the alarm DID have a separate volume, and even if i had turned down the volume accidentally the alarm would still happen and wake me up in the morning for work.
does windows phone 8 alarms work no matter if the volume is high or low.
also i can wake up to any song i want.
the song is not 100% important. but having the alarm work even if the phone is muted or in silent mode is important. has anyone been able to play with windows phone 8 yet and see if alarms work like that?
yeah the DND function is nice. i have it auto enable at like 11 or so that way facebook sounds don't annoy me. as long as i can turn off noises for facebook i'll be good. lol. don't need noises for that crap anyways.
I just went into WP7 (not 8) and turned my volume all the way down and the alarm still came on and made a sound. I do not see a way to wake up to anything other then the alarm sounds or a custom ringtone.
I'd like to know this as well. I still think I prefer how the BlackBerry worked... it would turn on and ring even if I turned the device off.
BlackBerry does so many things great. I use a Bold 9900 as my only device and nothing gets **** done like a BlackBerry. However I am still making the move to the Lumia 810 next week because I want a different user experience and a fresh OS. I just hope I don't find out later that I can't do what I'm used to doing on BB but it is what it is. I like the look and ecosystem of Windows Phone.
