With all my previous phones, if I set an alarm I can turn the phone off and yet the phone wakes up at the appropriate time and wakes me with the alarm. I can't seem to do this with the HTC Snap. Is there something I'm not doing correctly, or does the Snap have to be turned on all night?

I've never seem a phone sound an alarm if it's "OFF"... Having said that you don't need to turn off the phone, really. Windows Mobile Standard is never "off" but only has screen off. Windows Mobile Professional (with touch screen) is never off either, but only in "sleep" mode.

Honest Guv! I ain't tellin' no lie!

Seriously though, my Sony Ericsson's; T610 and T65 and the one I'm using now K700i all did. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure my Nokia E70 did as well (good phone, shame it's broken).

I suppose it isn't a biggie. After all, it's most likely night time will be when I'll be charging it, so I can live with it having to be switched on.

yep Windows Mobile needs to be turned on, even if asleep for the alarm to sound

you'll only miss your plane once before you learn this lesson

you are dead right, my Nokia phone from 15 years ago the alarm would sound even if the phone had been powered off
