Put it next to you? Like next to your pillow/head.

Apart from increasing your phones voume you can't :p But it's designed to get gradually louder - it's quiet when it goes off, and gets progressively louder with each set if rings until it's dismissed.<img>

As far as I know the default WP7 alarm is set to start off quiet and get louder so as to wake you up without causing a heart attack. And trust me I've woken up to loud noise one too many times and it's not good, rest of the day is just crappy.

If you don't like that though, you can hope they add more options with a update later or I guess try one of the other alarm apps on the marketplace?

I've more a complaint about it being too loud, and bad volume levelling on my Omnia 7 >.< The quietest volume level 1, is far too loud on a stock Omnia 7, especially for night time useage. It's plenty lound on full volume - that, and it's camera shutter sound would sporadically go off whilst your phone was on silent. You can fix both, but you have to change the min and max gain values in the diagnostics menu's yourself, there's no settings or options for it and I'm sure it'll just be annoying hte vast majority of people with the phone >.<

most complaints ive seen on xda say the volume is too low. seems to be that way on most phones including my evo. i hope the devs can get cracking here and unlock as much of wp7 as they can. seems to be at a stale mate right now.

the problem is that if you increase the volume, it increases the volume for music and ringtones, which become really loud, but the alarm because so so loud

i find the alarm doesnt get louder, just stays at one volume

yeah I too would like to see separate volume c for media, ring tones and alarms - I got used to this with android and its a big thing to lose.

Also I agree with the poster above, the omnia7 volume on level 1 is far too loud - how do you get to the diagnostics?

hopefully the independent volume controls will be implemented in an update (feb please), along with custom ringtones! :)
