Questions & Answers

Q: Can the alarm ring even if the device is on mute or silent mode?

A: Yes but you have to make sure that you set the alarm volume loud enough to be heard by you (see section above). An Alarm has its own volume control that is totally independent from the other settings of the device.

Q: Will the alarm ring if the device is off?

A: No. The device has to be at least in sleep mode for the alarm to ring. Some manufacturers offer that possibility but it required a condition that few consumers realize: those kind of device can NEVER be turned off (even if they look like they are, but that's only a technical trick). When a Samsung device is turned off, it's really off and all processes and apps are shut down.

Q: I want my alarm to ring but I don't want to be awaken by notifications while I am sleeping. And I can't turn off my device because of the alarm. What can I do?

A: Your device offer a “Do No disturb” mode that silence calls, alerts or notifications while activated. Be careful and make sure that Alarms are set as an exception. You will find a link, to a FAQ explaining how to set up this mode, below.
