    Gah, 2nd time I'm my entire lifetime with Windows Phone (since Lumia 920) when my phone froze at the worst time; When I'm asleep and waiting for my alarm to wake me up. Most recently, I missed 3 hours of work. The last time, 3 hours of school. Am I the only one with WIN10M screwing me over?

    Nope, I had some alarm issues before with 10 when I used it early this year, except it was either volume issues (almost impossible to hear regardless of setting) or me needing to hit Dismiss several times before it stopped.

    its a good thing, after a while you become a paranoid and you will be the one waking your phone up, to tell it to forget about that alarm you no longer need, and then you will have some extra time, which is extra nice

    another feature of the w10 master race

    fortunately for me I've had no issue with Alarms & Clock.

    I keep my app running in the background.

    Man, that does suck. I would probably purchase an alarm from a small store. It may not be high-tech, but it gets the job done.

    for all those alarm naysayers ...
    try ReAlarm from the Store, it's what WM10 Alarms & Clock should be, lots of customization.

    Been using W10M for a year now and have never had a problem with Alarms & Clocks. Always keep it running in the background perhaps.

    I always leave my curtains open just incase i miss my alarm (phone) and hopefully the sun wakes me up haha. Ive had my phone freeze when I'm taking a picture. But not like a scenery photo. A photo when people are all saying 'cheese' and then you have to be like 'sorry guys, my phone froze, just hold on'. So bad haha.

    It wasn't an issue with the alarm app. It was the issue of the phone being stuck on the lock screen and just freezing there. No calls got through when my coworkers called. I work the graveyard shift so there is no sunlight to open the curtains. I'll admit I did sleep later than usual and was hoping my alarms worked as usual. I forgot to set my digital clock too *face palm* with so many backups available, none were set lol

    On the last couple of Fast Ring builds, I have had an issue with the phone freezing upon waking from a screen-off condition. Either a notification or a call coming in. What's bad about it is that it will sometimes freeze mid-ring or vibrate and the phone will continue sounding the ring tone or vibration until you can reset it. Happens about once/twice a week.

    This is on stable build? I haven't had any alarm issues in a while *knock on wood* but I stay on stable. I learned my lesson with any preview/insider builds.

    I had phone shutdowns while taking pics, during calls and on apps. WRT it and started over with original software/firmware and went to release preview builds and now on slow ring on my 950.

    And today 1 of 3 alarms went off. I have 1 to wake up, 1 to finish getting ready, and 1 to leave. I am on fast ring. I think I should revert to slow ring to be safe. Beware my fellow W10M friends

    Sooooo ...
    You (the OP) are complaining about being on Insider Fast Ring & your phone doesn't function correctly?
    Functionally, beta testing.

    Yes, yes I am. I've had other issues while "testing" that I can forgive, like speed performance, apps crashing, random resets, mostly stuff while I'm using the phone. But I never really expected this, something that caused a short panic for myself and others. Maybe I persuaded others to switch from fast ring because of my mishap. Or convinced them to get a secondary alarm. Either way, when something unexpected like this happens, people will complain. We have that right

    You have, of course, sent Feedback to Microsoft.
    That should do it, nothing will come of reporting it HERE.
