    Always, I work on parts

    and pieces of the national power grid. You just never know when the power will trip off under a maintenance outage. The phone doesn't care

    Seems like a practical thing to do.

    I have my phone with me every day and it's much easier to set than an ordinary clock. Damn I got too much spare time if I'm writing crap like this.

    I Love It

    My cell phone (for which I now have no provider for.) Is the absolute best alarm clock. It is LOUD, lights up, and plays one of my favorite songs. 'Won't Back Down' Fuel the song begins with lead singer yelling. It always wakes me up. Always. And I have to say that is damn...

    Right Next to Me

    My 'conventional' alarm clock doesn't do anything for me so I use my cell phone.  After I set my alarm on it, I turn the volume to the loudest it can get, put it on vibrate, then put it right next to my pillow.  That's what it takes to wake me up lol

    My Handy Handheld Alarm Clock

    I don't know what I would do without the alarm on my phone. I don't have an alarm clock at my mom's, since I sleep in the living room. So, I need to use my phone to get up when I have classes. I always use the most annoying ring town to wake me up so it makes me get out of bed to...

    *Haaah* Sleepy

    Every morning I wake up to 2 alarms. the first one is my phone and the second one is my (please don't laugh) my Lego Star Wars Bobba Fett alarm clock. The ringtone I have on my phone is from my favorite video game series.

    It's Partially So I Can Change Up My Alarm Sound.

    I find the same sound every day ends up with me turning off the alarm and not remembering I got up. If it's the radio I just let it play or, again, turn it off without remembering. The many uses of a cell phone is wonderful so long as it isn't a ringing at all hours.

    I used to always use my cell phone as an alarm clock. I am incredibly addicted to my cell phone (I have to have it with me, it has to be on, it has to have service, and there has to be battery power), so when the extra loud alarm clock my parents had gotten for me wouldn't even...

    Alarms

    My old alarm clock broke. If my phone has an alarm anyway, I don't see the point in replacing the standard clock. Besides, the phone's alarm has much better sounds to wake up to than the alarm does. I don't like the standard alarm's tone and I don't like waking up to the radio...

    I Can Set 3 Alarms

    Used to hate having to switch the button on the alarm clock from weekday to weekend... My mobile lets me set 2 alarms for M_F and a separate one for Weekends... I love the 5 minute snooze, the old alarm went 9 minutes which let me go back to a deeper sleep.

    RIP Real Alarm Clock

    As it turns out, alarm clocks don't take being repeatedly bashed against a cinder block wall very well. Oh well, that thing was less than reliable anyhow. I've had better luck with using cell phone alarms, so I'll keep using them.

    Well Yeah

    There are times when I'm so groggy when I first wake up I dunno what button I'm supposed to hit to turn it off and I fumble with it while it grows louder and louder and annoys me. but most mornings I'm not that bad and I can turn it off within the first few seconds.

    My phone usually does a better job of waking me up. The vibrating on the wood night stand plus the loud tone usually do the trick. The trouble is staying awake!
