Will the alarm work even if the device is turned off

Last Update date : 2017.09.28


* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.



If the device is turned off, the alarm you have set will not work (Android OS ver 4.2.2 or below). 


This has been a known issue for most smart phones as the alarm is a software dependent, so if the device is powered off, software isn't running.


However, you may try to check if alarm will work on your phone even if it is turned off by following this tip: set an alarm after two or three minutes from this time, turn the device off, then wait for two to three minutes (alarm set) if it will be activated on your phone.


Also make sure that your battery is not empty for this function to work properly.
