    Anyone having the problem of the alarms going off behind the start or lock screen? There's no way to snooze or dismiss without unlocking the phone. By the time I do that, I've woken everyone else up because it takes so long!! Does anyone know how to fix this??

    Never had this issue before on any Windows Phone. Be it the Focus from WP7, the Lumia 920 on WP8 or this Lumia 950 on WP10.

    It's always popped up with the option to snooze or dismiss. I've never had to unlock the device whatsoever.

    Can you tell me if your notification settings have alarm on or off?? Mine is on for sounds only but it only appears in notification list and makes no sound. Just installed third party app and it did the same exact thing! And I agree, never had this problem on my previous Windows phones and this is my fourth. Thank you for any insight.

    I have 2 alarms on my phone. Each is set up the same, just different times. Hope this can help you out.

    with the last IP on my L920 I've noticed that it's easier to ignore the alarm, try to make it ring while you are awake and see what happens

    Seems to work now when phone is active, but doesn't work when phone is locked so it's kind of useless to be my alarm clock. Got a third party app to work now that banners are enabled. Trying out another one today since the one that works only allows one alarm and I need two. Very frustrating..... Worked perfectly on previous phones so it's got to be W10.

    Go get Alarm Plus app..... Works fine, though delays in alarm up to 1 minute may occur so not super precise buy at least it works.

    Same thing this morning. My alarm didn't go off...
    Worked perfectly before the .29 update.

    I had the same issue with my Lumia 950 XL. To fix it, go into notification settings and the third option down says ' show alarms and reminders on lock screen' this must be turned on for alarms to work when the phone is locked. Hope this helps!

    I'm pretty certain it has to do with bugs in lock screen notifications. I was not getting text audio notifications until I turned in all the options to have notifications displayed on the lock screen. It's probably a similar issue.

    Yes I have exactly this problem and always have since getting 950 XL. I suspect a software bug. :/

    The "Keep notifications private on the lockscreen" must be turned OFF!
    Also, set the "Alarms & Clock" to always run in the background.

    Make sure that third toggle is on.

    On my 930 the alarm stopped working when the latest WP10 update came. It sounds only if the display is on. When the display is black, nothing happens and the alarm is silently turned off at the set time. Useless. Must change to Android, unfortunately.

    Yes it's always been on. Have checked the settings many times and never gotten it working.

    NO!
    The alarms MUST just work. What the hell?! What good is a phone with no alarm functionality built in?!
