    Alarm only repeats 3 times for 10 seconds?????

    Advertisement



    I am using the alarm as a wake up and have had problems not hearing the alarm when it only repeats the short alarm 3 times and then will turn off. The only option that i see is to repeat 1 2 or 3 times. Is there a way of repeating the alarm more than 3 times, or play a full length song???

    I have loaded a full 3 minute song as a ringtone to use as the alarm, but still the alarm only plays the first 10 or so seconds the song. I would be happy if i could play the full song up to three times if possible, without it clipping it at the 10 second mark

    I hate the thought of having to pay 30 dollars to buy an alarm that may or may not do what im looking for.

    Thanks for your input.

    I set the repeat to 1, then I set a nice length ringtone. It does the job for me.

    yea i had issues with this too. Sometimes i would roll the track ball and it would pop up the snooze options and just get stuck there if you don't push anything. Slept through everything. Oops. Now I set 2 alarms...just in case. Pearl and nightstand clock.

    Although I did use the Mobylo! MultiAlarm for a bit and it worked well. Although it's 30 bucks I don't have.

    I don't know why but a song file with the .m4a extension will play the entire song as an alarm. A song file with an .mp3 extension will only play 10 seconds or so.

    Use mp3gain and increase the volume of the alarm RT. I have one that's so freaking loud it wakes up people in the next room!
