What I did was download the app Handcent. it is a texting program, but when I search for tones for my alarm, if I choose Handcent, it allows me to choose ringtones as the notification.
Nothing like waking up to some Buckcherry or JayZ and Alisha Keys to get the blood pumping in the morning.
Are there any other alarm clock tones and if so where can they be found? I cant wake up to the dings and whistles they have programed?
Not sure if this is a choice in the tones, but have you tried using the rooster tone? I am sure that would wake you up. I can't use the other tones because their too soft. That rooster tone really is loud. Just turn up the media volume to increase the sound.
