    Isn't this how the stock setup is? Turn off the vibrate option and flip the ringer mute switch to orange. All ringers and notifications will be silent but timers and alarms will still sound. Am I wrong here?

    What I can say is you set the alarming apps volume to what you want alarm to be. It's independent of what phone volume is set at.

    The problem is I don't want any other app notifications or sounds to be played during the night but still be woken up in the morning by the alarm. If the basic alarm/clock does this I will have to try all scenarios.Such as ringer mute then ringer mute with volume all the way down, then also airplane mode plus ringer mute and volume all the way down. Also try variations.

    Now before I got my iPhone 4 I was on motorola android and they had it were no sound or notifications would come thru yet I was woken up by alarm in the morn.

    Are there apps that send notifications that override the ringer mute switch? This would be news to me. None of mine do this. I guess I'm just not aware of any that would cause this problem -- but I'm probably only familiar with a few dozen apps.

    There was but i can't remember which ones did it at the time. I have just tried airplane mode and ringer switch but keep ringer volume at level i want alarm and seems to work. I shouldn't get any app notifications because i am in airplane mode. but won't get calls either.

    I don't know of any apps that override the ringer switch either-that's really bizarre. Something might not be right there...

    As someone said above, simply flipping the ringer switch to Mute is all that should be needed. The ONLY noise that will then play are your alarms. I've been doing this every night since getting my first iPhone years ago. No need for airplane mode or a separate app or tweak.
