8am alarm, a no show

so i use my phone as an alarm religiously. i use it during the week to wake up for work, and then on the weekends just to get my butt outa bed. well, on the weekends i set my alarm for 8am. yesterday, i ended up waking up at 9ish....and i was confused why my alarm didn't go off. i thought maybe i had dismissed it with out remembering. well today i woke up naturally at 7:50. so i waited to see if my 8am alarm would go off...and nope it didn't. changed it to 8:05am and it went off, wtf?

anyone else experience this? i thought i was crazy at first but two days in a row now. not sure if its just a weekend thing, so i will try it tomorrow as well when i am at work, but just seeing if anyone else has thought they were crazy by missing an alarm

Re: 8am alarm, a no show

hmmm, yeah i mean every other time i have set it to has gone off. just not 8:00am. well i am gonna try it tomorrow (don't know if its just the weekends or not), but could some one else try it out too? just set it for 8:00am tomorrow, if its not an inconvenience, and report back to here. if it doesn't go off again tomorrow and it does for other people then i may just hard reset. i meant to do that any way when i got the phone but i got too caught up in its amazingness to remember, haha. thanks in advance...

yeah, this morning when it didn't go off i was awake for it, so i changed it to 8:05 after it missed, and then it went off. wth is goin on. i guess sense ui doesn't like top of the hour times, haha. i origianlly thought it had something to do with my task killer, maybe killing the alarm task. but then it wouldn't have gone off at all if that were the case...so i am confused....

wow, i am starting to wonder if i can trust this to wake me up for work, haha. may have to go pick up an actual alarm clock.

maybe we should test it at X:30 and X:35, and see if it does it then too. maybe its just around the top of the hour? maybe not? how odd, how odd
