    I looked at the apple website to see if the new phone and/or software would let me play my ipod music for an alarm. I didnt see any mention of it. Does anyone know if its included in the new software?

    iPhone 3.0 doesn't seem to offer any way to use iPod songs for an alarm. I'd suggest 3rd party apps could do this, but I don't think they'd stay on when the iPhone has been in sleep mode all night.

    (And push notification would alert you, but couldn't force the app into song playing...)

    Might be iPhone fail on that score

    Go to Apple iPhone feedback and leave a feature request. I'll do it right now as well

    I don't know if you feel like buying a radio/alarm clock thing that is iPod compatible but a lot of them have that option. I bought my girlfriend one she seems to like it a lot.

    While everyone's at it, leave a feature request for allowing us to use our own ringtones for various message alerts. Seems simple enough, right? I'm sick of having to leave those limited, lame-*** tones assigned to important emails.

    FYI there are now a few apps that allow you to use any song on your phone as the wake up tone!

    I was able to convert a regular song to a ringtone by just cropping a regular music file into a small 30 second clip (choose any part of the song as long as it doesnt exceed 30 seconds) and renaming the extension of the file to .mRu (i believe this was the correct extension). I then added the song to iTunes.. it loaded it as a Ringtone and w/in Apple's reg CLOCK application u can choose any ringtone as a custom alarm ringer. I'm currently waking up daily to KoL's Use Somebody.

    It's not the most convinient process.. but literally took only 2 minutes if that tops... and saves u from having to buy a paid App or even worse an iPhone compatible alarm clock radio.

    Hope this helps..

    There are a ton of apps out there that are $.99. Worth it in my opinion...

    Hey, for those who don't know it yet: in Cydia there's a new tweak called PlayAwake that fully integrates in the default clock app. It allows you to select music or podcasts from the ipod music library as an alarm sound, or better: alarm music

    It costs $1.99 but IMO it is totally worth it. It even supports volume ramping so you'll really get up
