Tip & How-To about HTC Hero Smartphone

Adding mp3's for the alarm clock.....

If you are like me, you are not impressed with the alarms that came with the hero (sprint). They were too short, and I slept through all three that I had set. However, you can use any of your mp3's as alarms. This is not a difficult process, but it will involve using your phone as an external storage device, and creating a directory on your SD card.

Connect your phone to your computer and through the notifications screen, mount the SD card so you can see it on your computer. Navigate to the /media/audio directory. Inside the /audio directory, create a directory titled 'alarms'. Copy any mp3's you want as alarms into this newly created directory.

Remember to turn off usb storage from the notifications screen.

Go to the clock function, set an alarm, and you should see those mp3's available on the alarm sound list.

Good luck waking up!

Hi, Sprint HTC-Hero. Alarms won't work overnight, but when set and test they work OK within few minutes. Thanks

I don't want to question your common sense, but have you changed the AM/PM setting for your alarms? I am trying to think of anything that could be the cause, but your alarms work when it set it for a few minutes later, this is the only setting I can think of.

Let me know otherwise, and we can try to find the cause.
