hey, why not? You're probably attached to your cell phone the entire day..might as well use it to wake up. 2,035 People
"wake Up!!" - I use my cell phone, but I do have a clock radio in my room. It's nice though it wakes you up with anything you like, your favourite music to the voice of you favourite person. What better than to start off your morning like that!

It's Just Easier - I always have my phone next to me when I sleep so it is just easier to us it as an alarm, plus I paid a lot for it, might as well make it worth it.

Why Not? - It's there, so why not use it? If some programmer took the time to put an alarm clock feature on my cell phone, the least I can do is make use of it, right? Plus I can set multiple alarms with my phone, which is a necessity because I wake up in stages. I can't just set...

I Often Do - I once again broke my alarm clock. Somehow those things never last long in my hands, so I'm using my cell phone... again. The only problem is that I can't turn the volume up enough to wake me from every state of 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.
