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 149188.8.131.52). Please help!! I am tired of missing meeting, appointments and over sleeping!!! Thanks!

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.
Create a folder on your SDCard named media, inside a folder name sounds and then folders named ringtones,p alarms and notifications. Like this /media/sounds/ringtones /media/sounds/alarms /media/sounds/notifications
Put the desired mp3 inside the folders where you want them to appear and voila.
- How to Add Ringtones, Alarms, and Notifications to EVO: 1. On your SD card make a folder called Media (if it's already there skip step) 2. In the media folder make a folder called audio 3. In the audio folder make a folder called "ringtones", "alarms", and "notifications" 4. Put any ringtones that you want in these folders.
From what I have already experienced so far, some WM6 builds seem to be prone to have their notifications queue messed up.
Google for 'checknotifications_arm.cab', 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.
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.
Try to click the bell icon when you set your alarm and see if you have checked the box for "play sound".
Also, verify if your volume is up and not in "Off" mode.
Also, go to Settings, click Sounds and Notifications. Verify if you were able to check the "Enable sounds for programs" box and make sure the notifications box is checked.
And on the notifications tab select "Reminders" from the drop down menu for "Event" and ensure that "Play sound" and "repeat" are checked.
Hope this will solve your problem!
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:
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.
To set an alarm for an event:
1. Create a new event or double-click an existing event.
2. In the New/Edit Event dialog box, select the Alarm check box.
3. Click the time interval selector and select Minutes, Hours, or Days.
4. Type a number between 0 and 99 in the Time Measurement box.
5. Click OK.
To set a default alarm for all new events:
1. From the Tools menu, choose Options.
2. In the Options dialog box, click the Date Book tab.
3. Select the Alarm Preset check box.
4. Click the time interval selector and select Minutes, Hours, or Days.
5. Type a number between 0 and 99 in the Time Measurement box.
6. Click OK.
Setting Alarm Options
You can configure the Alarm Manager settings for the Desktop application in the Alarm tab of the Options dialog box.
To set Alarm options:
