G1 phone: alarm clock

My old phone died (the display) and when I went in to the T-Mobile store to browse, I talked myself into the G1. (I confess, PacMan was the irresistable feature, although the ShopSavvy and map features were also compelling.) But the handbook is lacking. So, as I figure out the little things that aren't mentioned in the book, I'm going to post them.

I use my cell phone for my alarm clock. The G1 offers three separate alarm settings. You can set the time, the sound, whether to vibrate, and which days to repeat the alarm, for three configurations. My question was - does it have a snooze? Yes, it does. When the alarm goes off, two buttons appear on the screen: Snooze and Dismiss. It will snooze for 10 minutes.

I am having a problem with the alarm ring. I don't hear the alarm but I do see two button 'snooze' and 'Dismiss'. On the sound Settings 'silent mode' option is unchecked. Any idea what is causing this problem??

I have been using my alarm. All of the sudden I have the same issue. No sound please help.

All I can suggest is open the Alarm Clock application, select one of the alarms (there are 3), then change the ringtone associated with it, see if that helps.

I saw mention on a forum that the alarm wouldn't "wake" a phone that was "asleep", but it does wake mine so I don't think that's a problem.

The documentation that comes with the phone is really inadequate, but the online guide (141 pages!) is much better. It's at http://support.t-mobile.com/knowbase/root/public/tm30234.pdf
