what is it about cell phone alarms? i have never been able to get up to any kind of alarm clock and it seems like ever since i have had my cell phone for the last few years i have never really overslept unless i clicked snooze and then it went back off because something about it wakes me up, and i don't know what it is, any other alarm clock goes off and i don't hear it and hate to hear it but when my cell phone goes off no matter how deep in sleep i am i will hear it and go and get ready to get up...and its just something about the cell phone and i don't know what it is...what about all of you do you use your cell phone alarm clocks? thanks for taking the time out of your day to stop by and read and review my discussion and i hope that you reply to my discussion and i hope that you all had a great day and that you have a great night tonight, once again thanks for taking the time!

I also use the alarm function of my phone to wake me up in the morning. I've been using it for quite some time already. What's good about it is that you can change its alarm tone. I have Red Jumpsuit Apparatus as my tone. And when it goes on, it's really loud so it really wakes me up. And you can also press snooze but it still goes on after a couple of minutes.

Hello jhl. I love to use my cell phone alarm to wake me up. I think that it is very helpful and it has never failed in waking me up. Also I use the alarm o'clock in my radio for a change. When it is time, the radio station will start to broadcast. So in a word, I use more of the alarm in my radio as I can always listen to some news on the air.

I also used to use an digital alarm clock but it wasn't as effective as my cellphone alarm. I've been using my cellphone as an alarm clock since around 2004. I still use my cellphone as my alarm clock but I don't use the built-in alarm tones. I uploaded George Michael's Careless Whisper into my phone and set that as my alarm tone. So every morning, I wake up to some romantic sounding saxophones hahaha
