Hey Friends, I used to put the alarm on my mobile and kept in the table which is just Two feet away from my Bed. And before it start Ringing, i will took the mobile and check the time, and switch off the Alarm, I will wake up.. I saw most of the people are using the Mobile as alarm, and the Alarm timepiece will be put it in their Show Case.. What about you.. will you too use the Mobile as your alarm, or did you use the alarm Clock for the purpose of set the alarm, for wake up in the morning. Post your comments..

i use my mobile as an alarm. its very convenient actually cause its a bit hard to find an alarm clock to buy where i'm from. as surprising as that is it's true! i usually put my mobile under the pillow. that way i HAVE to wake up. if i don't do that then i'll probably just ignore it. lol

I have to use the alarm clock when i want to wake up at a certain time in the morning. It's because, if I dont have an alarm, whether it's from a cell phone or the regular alarm clocks, I won't be able to wake up on time. I have insomnia so I get to sleep at around 3 or 4 in the morning. And if I have to wake up in time to prepare breakfast for the family, I need to be waken by an alarm.

Usually I use the mobile as my alarm,just the music of the alarm should be soft.One person wake up in a nosiy music won't be so clear the whole day, the strong music is not so healthy for the brain. So the music should be soft and shouldn't be too loudly.The other thing is that it's not so healthy to put the mobile beside you. So Alarm Clock maybe a good choice,I still remember when we were young, we used it a lot, just like good old days.

I have the "annoying buzzer tone" so that I make sure to get up and turn it off. I have the clock on the other side of the room so that I have to get up and not just turn it off and roll over. But usually I'm waking up on my own a few minutes before it goes off lately.

I used to rely on my mobile but I got used to waking up the same hour everyday for over a month now so if I did set up my mobile for the alarm, it would just be for back up purposes. I however, most of the time, forget to set the alarm so I usually wake up with the help of the mobile.

yes, I used my cellphone's alarm clock everyday. Well, when it starts to ring, I will put if off and go back to sleep again. Most often this made me wake up late then I have to rush to prepare for work and getting ready with my kids for school too. The reason why sometimes I can not eat breakfast because I am in a hurry...

I don't have a traditional alarm clock anymore and because I'm a writer I don't need to get up at any particular time usually unless I have an appointment or something. If I need to get up during those times I will use my cell phone and its alarm function.

I am using both my cell phone and an alarm clock to wake me up in the morning. However, I usually wake up before either clock goes off. Seems as if I have a built in alarm clock inside of me but have my cell phone and alarm clock there just in case I oversleep. It is always good to have a backup plan so that you do not end up missing or being late for work or school. I like the different tones you can use on a cellphone to wake me up.

I don't have to use any alarm clock or mobile for waking up. Also I have never used it in my school days. At the time of sleeping I only say that I have wake at certian time & wake up exactly at that time. My mother also used wake up in this way. My friends envy me for this habit.

Yes,why not?Often I can't wake in the morning and a alarm will be helpful,especially in the beginning month of a term.

I used to use my mobile as a alarm clock, but now, I usually can wake up just at the time I need naturally, so I don't set a alarm now. I still remember when I was young in primary school and middle school, it's very tough for me to wake up on time in the morning. At that time, only one alarm wasn't enough, my mom would set 2 or 3 for me. However, when I am growing up, I become easy to wake up in the morning, when in high school, only one alarm can wake me up, and when in college, I can wake up myself naturally without an alarm.

I need to wake up at 5:00AM every morning and the best way for me to do so is by setting my mobile phone to alarm. I set it on Reminder and on alarm clock if the reminder fails to get me up and at 'em. I usually set the reminder for 4:30AM and the alarm itself for 4:45AM. They both have options which can postpone the alarm for ten more minutes if I still don't get out of bed but by the time the 2nd alarm goes off I am up!

I do need an alarm to get up early in the morning. Recently i have joined a gym and i prefer to go to gym in the morning so i have to get up at 6am in the morning which is quite a difficult task for me which cannot be accomplished unless i get up listening to an alarm. eve if i miss out on gym, i have to get up at 8 am in the morning for my office, so i have to use an alarm again. I normally set my alarm in my mobile. i don't have a an alarm clock. and i often tend to go back to sleep after the first time my mobile rings. I am in a habit of taking an extended nap which has proven to be dangerous for me many a times. I have missed some lectures in my college time due to the same habit. but in office, there is no restriction. No one complains even if i am 15mins late to office. Its only during the weekends that i don't set up an alarm to get uyp but still i tend to get up by 9 or 9:30. May be because i have come into a habit of getting up early.. So i get up, wash my face, wake up my friend who accompanies me to the gym and then go for brushing up my teeth, followed by getting fresh... and then i would get up ready in the outfit respective to where i am heading for..gym or office..

alarm clock - photo of traditional alarm clock
Hi I do have an alarm on my mobile phone but I don't use it as an alarm. I have the alarm clock, radio etc. all in one alarm clock. I like it because I can just look up at my head board and see what time it is in the middle of the night. I don't have to fumble around looking for my phone. My son is a trucker and he does use his phone as his alarm clock. Only problem with that is when I call him and I don't know he is sleeping, I'll wake him up. He don't like that very much. lol Have a nice night, Char
