Why is there no user manual for the Inspire? It was announced months ago, so there has been time to create a manual. It's a decent phone, but I don't have time to discover all its features by randomly poking at settings and apps to find out what happens.
Hang in there, it is coming. Some last minute changes were requested so it had to be revisited.
I need it also ASAP! I use my phone for my alarm clock. Need to know if i turn it off if it will automatically Power-up by itself??????
The Alarm clock will only work if the device is Powered on. This isnt in the manual either.
Is there an ETA? How long does it take to update and publish a PDF file?
Did you mean turn it off as in lock it, or actually power it down.
The alarm clock will work if it's just locked.
yes power..off. My other phone had a Power up feature on it ,so if it was shut off, It'd automatically power up fro your alarm clock! Nice feature! That way I didnt have to listen to other sounds from SMS , mail etc..
When you power down the Inspire it is OFF. The alarm will not work. In standby mode the alarm works fine.
If your old phone had a way to power up to generate an alarm, it had to be in a low level standby mode to monitor the clock for alarms. When the Inspire is in standby (screen dark) it consumes very little power but will still power up to generate an alarm. If you don't want to listen to other sound notifications, go to Menu>Settings>Sound>Volume and turn down the volume of ringtones, notifications and media - leave Alarm set to full volume. Remember to bump up the volume of the other tones when you wake up.
Hi. Yes, a manual is definitely needed. I also hate poking around the phone trying to figure things out. I was disappointed that a manual was not included in the box or at the very least on a CD if they wanted to save a few cents on paper.
When it's available, the manual will be in the "Download" tab of the Inspire section on this Forum.
User's Guide for the Inspire is available for download now.
Go to the Main Page for the Inspire and click on "Download".
The hot links aren't working from the Index or Glossary yet, but the information is there.
I do the same thing, as far as using the alarm clock on my phone, you can turn the phone on vibrate only or silent mode, and the alarm will still sound, there may even be a setting to make sure that it will still sound if the phone is on vibrate. That was one of the first things I had to figure out when I got my Inspire two days ago.
TRY THIS LINK. I FOUND IT TO BE VERY HELPFUL INSTEAD OF LOOKING FOR A MANUAL. ALOT OF GOOD TRICKS & TIPS.
