Re: Customer satisfaction......
I'm not sure I'm understanding this.
"If you want the alarm to wake you up you have to leave it switched on all night. There's no light to spoil the 'beauty' of the design, but then you've no idea if you have any messages unless you check."
An alarm has to be switched on otherwise it wouldn't work. If you mean he phone has to be switched on - then yes it has Just like my clock-radio has to be switched on - it's an electrical device.
If you mean you have to have the screen lit up - then that is plain wrong.
My iPhone is now my alarm-clock. I set it by selecting one a several preset I have already created and then I switch it off using the power button (Not completely offf (se above) but just off witch a single press so that it goes dark. It will still ring if someone phones. it will still go bong if an email comes in and it will still warble when a text arrives. - often I hear those before the alarm goes off in the morning!
How would you know on any other phone if you had messages unless you check? - you get an audible of some sort then you look at the phone - you still have to go to it or pick it up to read them - the phone won't come to you - unless Android means something completly different.
