    Hey folks. I'm new to the iPhone and to this blog, but I am happy to report that I love the iPhone, especially compared to all the issues I was having with the Palm Pre.

    That said, this morning something happened for the 2nd time: after I hit snooze several times in the native alarm clock app, the volume on my phone stops working completely and most other apps become very slow and non-responsive. The only fix for this has been to shut down the iPhone and start up again, but I'd prefer for this not to be happening at all.

    Advice? Thanks!

    Try restoring the iPhone and set it up as new.

    I don't trust 3rd party alarms, without backgound apps I dont trust them for waking up

    What did you hate/issues about the Pre? just curious

    I'd like to give you an answer, but I use the native alarm clock every morning and hit snooze at least three times each morning. I have never experienced the problem you're describing.

    @en0c: Will I lose everything if I restore my phone? Contacts, music, etc.?

    @earless puppy: I had 6 Pre's, 1 had screen distortion issue found on earlier units, second had wobbly hardware, touch screen completely stopped working, and I forget the other issues, but the phone just didn't work out for me. I wanted it to, but it didn't. I also had a terrible case of iPhone envy, so I did what I had to do. Minus the alarm clock issue, and I am not exaggerating here, the iPhone is perfection!

    you can manually backup your phone in itunes.

    your music, contacts, etc should all be sync'd to your computer. if you're not, do it asap.

    I've had on rare occasions problems with the snooze function in that the alarm would shut off instead of going into snooze mode. That and the volume is no where as loud as my BlackBerry Bold is. But I've never had any lag problems like the OP described. I don't guess you have jailbroken the phone yet? This could cause lag I suppose.
