    Alarm Clock

    Hi everyone,

    I want to set the alarm clock and turn off the phone before going to bed. Does the alarm clock run when the phone is turned off? Or, is there an application in Android which enables an "auto turn-on" for the phone at a certain (pre-set) time?

    Do I have to leave the phone switch on if I want to set an alarm clock?

    Welcome to the forum!!! You must have the phone powered on to use the alarm clock.

    Hi. A question on a similar theme. On my LG Nexus 4, I previously could set an alarm tone to my own ringtone, but that functionality has disappeared, and I only have the set list that comes with the phone. Does anyone know how I get that functionality back? Thanks.

    Welcome Showboat, what has changed since you were able to use your own notification with the alarm clock? Try a soft reboot it fixes several types of small issues, press and hold the power button for a few seconds and you will get an option to power off the phone. The phone will fully restart when you press the power button again.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The soft reboot didn't have an effect, but I did figure out what the problem was. It was with the Ringtone Maker app. It has been updated so that song snippets can be classified as ringtones, alarm tones, etc.. Just needed to classify the tune as an alarm as well as a ringtone. Happy that I found this forum, and hopefully my experience will help someone else.

    I used to really appreciate the 'turn the phone off and the alarm still works feature' on my 'dumb' Nokia. On my 'smart' N4 I just put it into airplane mode while it charges overnight.

    As a beside: Does any of the gurus know of an app that would auto switch to airplane mode when I put the phone on my Chi induction charger?

    Tasker should be able to, but it's not the simplest of Apps to use

    NFC tag could do the same.

    Do I need root to set up NFC to do that?

    I've looked at Tasker before but quickly realised it's way beyond me!
