    Paian, with anything electronic you can never be 100% certain it will always work. Thats just life. That said I have never once had an alarm problem and have not heard of any problems from any other BB users. I know in times past I have believed my alarm failed me only to be told by my husband that I turned it off and went back to sleep.

    Hope this helps you.

    Agreed. Typing while on the go is difficult and dangerous . Oh and when I have a huge appointment or need to catch a flight or something like that....I always use a back up alarm. Not sure who your service provider is with but my provider has a line you can call and set up a wake up call. Very nice free service.

    Nope, never had an alarm fail out of itself... Though I've had times where I've set it for PM rather than AM or I'm so tired that I smack it and wakeup a couple hours late.

    Always used the blackberry as an alarm, sometimes it's the built in alarm while other times its whatever comes up first on the calendar.

    Hello,
    check the pinstack thread titled My Alarm Application. I found this application last week after my other alarm application that I purchased started to "go off" at the wrong times even after re-setting it.
    Anyway check out the thread......you can set 6 alarms, and it is free.....
    Hope this helps:-)

    I do notice with MyAlarm is that you can't have the phone turned off, otherwise the alarm won't wake up the 'Berry. It will work when it's in sleep-mode.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ My BB alarm has failed to go off a few times. At first I thought I had turned it off and gone back to sleep, but after it happened again I see it is the BB acting up and not user error.

    Actually, my alarm always works when I shut the phone off at night.

    Thankfully, it hasn't failed me yet.

    If you use the phone lock calendar events will not sound off if the phone is locked on AT&T. I learned this the hard way and have been using the regular alarm with good luck since March.
