Thread: How do I turn off my "ringer" without turning off my alarms?

    Default How do I turn off my "ringer" without turning off my alarms?
    I downloaded an app a couple days back that helps me sleep by playing ambient noises through my headphones. Well, my sister decided to call me while I was using this last night. You don't know how violently I shook awake ahaha. I switch my phone onto silent at night just in case someone calls, but the ring still came through my headphones. So I turned the volume down on my ringer, but I woke up ten minutes later than I usually do because my iphone alarm didn't go off. Thank god I set my real alarm clock.

    Anyone know of how to turn off the ringer without it effecting my alarm?

    The problem is that you're wearing headphones. The ring will ALWAYS play in your headphones no matter what setting your phone is on. If your phone is on silent without headphones your alarm still goes off like normal.

    Hmm, ok. Maybe I'll just switch to airplane mode at night so nothing comes through. Thanks.
