    If you fully power down the phone, no the alarm will not go off. Which phone did you have before that would turn on and then set the alarm off?

    You CAN turn the screen off and the built in alarm will still go off. I use it as my day to day alarm for waking up.

    One of the nice things about the iPhone is that you don't need to turn it off. Flip the mute switch so that you won't hear calls or sms in the night, but you will hear your alarm in the morning!

    I have vibrate mode set so mute does not work well.

    You can also go into airplane mode.

    Best bet is to just flip the switch.

    This will work as well and save your battery at the same time.

    Yeah I had the same problem only once then I figured it out. On older phones, flip phones, Motorolla, Nokia even if you power the phone off the alarm still goes off. The Iphone as everyone has said is different if you power it off it is OFF. The iPhone is different from older simple phones so things work a bit differently. The solutions have been presented in the other posts.
