    Better than SPB Time?

    i like SPB Time bc it has a nice, small today plugin that shows the time and the next alarm that is coming up. i like how u can have a ton of alarms and use ur own mp3s. the PROBLEM is that SBP Time ignores the phone's volume settings (i.e., when i put my phone on vibrate - both phone and pda - the alarm will still go off with volume.) the other problem is that there is no way to dismiss an upcoming recurring alarm before it goes off.
    so, can u please suggest an alternative to SPB Time that has all these features?

    I'm looking for a replacement too. I only use it for the alarm and today plug-in, so the timers and everything else is just taking up space. I can't stand the delay in displaying the current time when you wake the phone up. Sometimes I just glance at it after I press the power button and I get the wrong time.

    I liked the size of the original clock, but not the memory it took. I tried SPB Time and it seemed too small for my tastes. I am now using ProjectION's Pocket Digital Clock and it looks nice, and a small memory footprint.

    Hmm, this morning my alarm went off then a little later I heard a tone so I looked at the phone and it said "Sorry SPB Time Error" and i had to X out 3 times to get rid of it then it said low memory when I have 25 storage and 29 program left. So I will be looking for something else too. On my 6700 I had SPB Time but had like 6 more alarms I could set and it never had an error. But I am sure there are many out there, I use to use one that was called Nsync or something like that and it was very good.

    the problem with ProjectION and the like is that they dont show the upcoming alarm the way spb does. i know spb has problem, but this is a great feature!

    I like Spd Time

    I have been using Spd Time for the last several weeks. I like it quite a bit. I like the fact that I can turn my sounds down both the phone and the PDA and yet my alarm still works. I use it for an alarm clock and this feature works for me.

    I have absolutely no problem with this program otherwise. I highly recommend it.

    geide,
    lets say u are at a meeting, or in a theater, and u put ur phone on vibrate. it so happens that u have a recurring alarm go off at that time every day (say, to remind u to take your medication). in order for your alarm not to make any sound, u have to disable the alarm ahead of time and remember to enable it later on. otherwise, it will play your alarm sound at an embarrasing time. there should be a way to make spb time follow whatever the phone is set to. dont u agree?
