Ready to Silence a Phone! Forever!!! Enchanting the Highlander!

Ugh! My phone alarm went off from last Sunday. I thought someone was calling me at 3:45 in the morning. It was in the other room. I ignored it. It wouldn’t go away. I ignored it some more.

It started taunting me again. Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

I’m awake, all right! When I don’t want to be awake.

Okay, so call me technically challenged, but I didn’t know how to shut it off or shut it up. I had the brilliant idea of muting it. Yes! That did it. I went back to bed. And then it played it’s jingly sweet tune again. Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

I grind my teeth, can’t believe it could play when the phone is muted, unplug the phone, consider shutting it down, but I’ve got to figure out how to turn off the alarm. Did I mention I’m technically challenged? Not about everything, but just some things. And when I’m tired, that adds to the challenge. So I’m looking through help, and all the other things that say they will tell me how to do something. NOTHING says anything about an ALARM clock. Okay, so then I scroll through the other stuff, and lo and behold, there’s a clock. So I click on it, and yes! I can turn the “cute” little thing off.

I had set the alarm, or my friend had, for 3:45 AM so I could make my flight back home the previous Sunday.

I had a foot cramp 2 hours earlier, which had me heading for the calcium tablets in the kitchen also. So it was a wild night.

  1. I went through the alarm thing early on with my phone. Like you, I was surprised the muting did not work. Finally found how to cancel the alarm but I am still bothered with wrong number calls in the wee hours. Always, repeat that, ALWAYS mute or silence at night because of those annoying wrong numbers! Arrgghh! I chose a phone with the android operating system because I liked the idea of being able to personalize almost every aspect of it. The young and quick minds that designed it are waaaay ahead of me, and for a while it was like “What was I thinking when I paid $700 for something I am not smart enough to operate?” After two years I am comfortable with it and enjoy “most” of the features. Some of them do not interest me, but it’s fun. I use it for everything now. I am fairly sure I have bought my last desk computer. But never say never. lol

  2. lol! It took my daughter forever to convince me to get a “smart” phone. I love that it is so smart even when I am not. 🙂 I love the camera, and getting emails when I couldn’t with a fliptop. I love the GPS when it doesn’t steer me wrong. 🙂 So lots of nice things with it. I think muting is a great idea. But I forget after I mute at the theater, and then learn my daughter has tried calling me numerous times. oops. lol
