Windows Phone 7.5: Day 8

My post today is about the alarm clock. This may seem like a bit of an odd thing to discuss, and there may be something more behind why, whether physically, mechanically or psychologically... I don't know... But for some reason... The alarm clock on Windows Phone 7 doesn't seem to wake me up.

For comparison, for the last year, we've depended on my wife's iPhone 4 to wake us up in a morning. Each night, I set the alarm and have set the ringer to the one that sounds like some sort of submarine... "Dive! Dive! Dive!" and each morning (bar the odd one where my 4 year old son has wandered in early in the morning and dismissed the alarm straight away because it interrupting the game of Peppa Pig that he's helped himself to)... It's woken us up.

With Windows Phone 7 I find myself still waking up to the iPhone 4 alarm despite my Windows Phone 7 one having been set to go off twice before it reaches that time.

I've yet to attempt to load any other ringtones onto my Windows Phone 7, perhaps that's something I should look at doing today, perhaps even getting the same sound that is proven to wake me on the iPhone.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
