After a spontaneous reboot of my FP3 during the night, the Alarm Clock Plus app didn’t sound in the morning. Because of that, my kids were too late for school. I seek to prevent this from happening ever again.
When I looked at the phone to see how late it was, it was asking for the PIN of my SIM card (I currently have a single SIM in the phone in slot 1).
is this app (Alarm Clock Plus) related behaviour? In that case: is there an equivalent alarm clock app that does sound after a reboot, before the PIN is entered?
is this settings related? Can I e.g. instruct the Fairphone to run the Alarm Clock app before the phone(?) app? If so: how?
is this solvable in another way, or should I buy a separate alarm clock to be sure to be woken up in time in the morning?
just in case the phone is spontaneously switched off instead of rebooting: does the trick on FP2 (running in developer mode) work on FP3, to ‘switch on’ (while it was never really off) to sound the alarm?
should I remove the PIN from the SIM entirely to avoid hanging in this screen?
The built-in clock app should work just fine, is there a specific reason you’re not using that one?
The one thing I would check is if Alarm Clock Plus is installed to your SD card. Apps installed on an SD cards cannot start until the device has been unlocked, I believe this is an Android security thing.
The gentle alarm, I immediately used.
The buttons, I will leave for now. I’m still getting used to the button positions on the fp3 (that are much better than on fp2 imo). Shaking and flipping the phone does not come natural to me, with a heavy phone like the fp3.
Maybe the developers could add huge buttons to a screen you may choose in some future.
