    Alarm Not Going Off

    Hi to everyone,

    I have had my One X 2 months now and this is the second time my alarm has not gone off when set.
    The alarm was still set for 6.40 when i woke up at 7am it had not gone off!

    Also on several occasions friends have sent me texts which i have never received!

    Anyone got any ideas

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    I am sure you have check the volume level and / or if the device happens to be set on "vibration"...

    As for texts - are you using the stock SMS app or a 3rd party app from the Play Store?

    Thanks for the response, the settings on the alarm are fine.
    When i re-set the alarm for a later time it went off fine
    Also no 3rd party apps for my texts

    Have you tried clearing cache with an app like 1Click Clear?

    Otherwise, you could have an app interfering with the stock apps - you can do a factory reset to see if that improves but then you would have to reset up your device as it would restore your phone to as it was when you took it out of the box.

    This is a HTC bug that has been around for years. It has nothing to do with your settings. A hard reset will not fix this issue (well, perhaps for a little while). Rebooting the phone sometimes fixes it, sometimes it doesn't. Alarms will fail completely to go off or they will go off at the wrong time.
    Sometimes this works: Delete all alarms. Then reboot your phone, then set the alarms up again. If this works for you, you can enjoy working alarms until your phone next crashes, which will probably be tomorrow.
    I tried to ask HTC about this but got no reply.

    Hey, experiencing the same issue with my One V.

    It's kind of a dealbreaker for me, because I expect this simplest of phone tasks to be reliable. Instead, it's useless. My "fix" has been to use my extra Kyocera Rise as an alarm when I go to bed at night, but that's a hassle (also, if I'm on the road, I don't like having to carry two phones).

    The Kyocera has never given me trouble, and a lot of that, I'm sure, is the fact that it uses plain, stock Android. No fancy UI, no proprietary nonsense, just plain jane Android. It's quick on its feet, doesn't get hung up, and is completely reliable. The problem, however, is that the hardware is garbage. Cheap, cheap, cheap. With my One V, the problem is reversed: Excellent hardware, sleek phone, beautiful display and camera, very portable, but with a buggy, laggy UI that just devours the relatively small amount of memory.

    Eventually, handset makers will get the Memo that stock Android is fine on its own. Look at the Nexus phones that Google puts out: simple, elegant, reliable. No layers upon layers of code to mess things up. Sense UI is restrictive, buggy, and quite useless.

    Same deal with my HTC One S - if I turn the phone off it doesn't wake up at the alarm time... kinda defeats one of the main purposes of having an alarm.
