  1. I solved my issue. Some times my alarm would show its going off but no sound and then my other alarms wouldn’t go off.

    This caused me many headaches from being late.

    My problem was that if you have multiple alarms set but you don’t have snooze activated on them and you stop the first alarm with the volume option than it will not sound any of the other alarms that you have set unless one has the snooze option on.

    Make sense? Hope I helped
