Notifications and Alarms done work.

My alarms and notifications don't work. I never get notified of meetings, reminders, alarms, etc. When I turn the phone off and back on, it freaks out and for 2+ minutes all of the missed alarms and notifications go off (audibly - not on the screen). I've read that it is a problem with the operating system and that downloading the most current Windows mobile should solve it. I have tried that. It works for a week or two, but then I'm back to not getting the notifications/alarms. I have Microsoft Windows Mobile Version 5.0 OS 5.1.195 (Build 14955.2.3.0). Please help!! I am tired of missing meeting, appointments and over sleeping!!! Thanks!

Re: Notifications and Alarms done work.

It seems to still be an unsolved problem as yet in windows mobile. The solution appears to be to download an independent alarm etc program such as; Which you can get on a free trial, or; Which is free. Hope this helps :)

Re: Notifications and Alarms done work.

Try to reinstall the OS. This could be a file error.

My htc touch reminders won't sound. The general alarm works but not the reminder alarms in the calendar, texts, e-mail, missed calls etc all sound, just not the calendar reminders

From what I have already experienced so far, some WM6 builds seem to be prone to have their notifications queue messed up.
Google for '', intall it on your device, and tap on 'Options > Settings...', tick both checkboxes there. Tap ok,' and 'Clear', at the top of the application's screen. Your notifications queue will be free of garbage, now.
Then, go to your Calendar application, choose a day which has the next events with notifications (reminders), Edit each one of them twice: one to delete the Reminder settings, and another one to reset them (you'll notice that at the 2nd edititing action for each event, the Reminder settings will be shown as they were, prior to their deletion - less work to be done!). This will set Calendar entries in the notifications queue.
Your reminders should work from now on.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos

Alarm setting

What settings in alarm do you need to set? In case you want to set the alarm time, tap Start >> Settings. Go to System tab and open Click and Alarms, tap on Alarms tap at the bottom and you may set the alarms from there.
In order to set the alarm tone, tap Start >> Settings. Open Sounds and Notifications in Personal tab, make sure that the checkbox for Programs and Notifications is checked. Now go to Notifications tab, in the event select Reminders and you may configure the alarm behavior and ring tone in there.

Please rate the solution.

Alarm not sounding & notifications not displaying +- syncing

Hi. First of all, I think the hard reset is not the first solution, but it's the last and the absolute solution. But in case if it is needed you can perform it by: The phone buttons + reset & power = hard reset. Firstly, tap the Start and the Settings. There, find the Sounds & Notifications. Ensure that the first 3 of the checkboxes are checked. And select the second tab to configure your notification sounds and vibration settings. After you've done these, you can try to set an alarm and check if your PDA notifies you. If not, you can also give a try to this free alarm application ( for your PDA. If none of these work, you can try to hard reset your device, but you should backup all your data before a hard reset since all the data will be lost after a hard reset. Hope this helps.

T-mobile dash multiple alarms

The solution is a follows; If you have any legit alarms already set, disable them before proceeding

1) As soon as the unwanted alarm goes off , look at what time your phone says it is and make a note of it. (if you know EXACTLY what time it goes off at, then go to the next step)

2) Goto Start -> Clock & Alarm -> Alarm

3) Set the alarm time for the exact time from step #1. Set alarm to On.

4) Click Done, done, and done

5) Goto Start -> Clock & Alarm -> Alarm

6) Change the alarm to Off.

7) Click Done, done, and done

That's it, the alarm should now be disabled for this unwanted alarm, if you have multiple unwanted alarms, repeat this procedure for each.

Is an audible alarm software available?

I'm not sure of the HX4705's capabilities to sound multiple alarms, but I have downloaded a free alarm program called Wolfclock to my iPaq rz3715 which I use for the exact same reasons (meetings, wake up, take medication...) Try this link:

Duplicate alarms

I may be off base but might the problem be as simple as the frequency being set for the alarm. What I mean to say is, might the default reminder time for the alarm be set to such a low setting like sec's or minutes leaving the unit to repeat the alarm rapidly prior to your being able to dismiss/snooze. Good luck.
