Even if you turn the sound off (not the phone, just put it on silent) your alarm will still work and wake you up. Try it. Put phone on silent and then set the alarm for 3 minutes or so from now. The alarm still works.
Thank you B.Leekley, for answering the question!
I agree with Au fait--the alarm can work even if the phone is on silent mode. As long as you are getting a good night's sleep, it is O.K. to keep the phone on. Thanks!

That makes sense! Thank you for answering, Au fait! The reason why I asked this question is that according to recent researches, people are being sleep deprived due to mobile phones near their pillow. It affects peaceful sleep somehow. Thanks again!

Thanks MarleneB, for answering the question!
That's the right thing to do. Sound sleep is very important for sound health. Thanks and have a good day!

Thanks janshares, for your response!
Yes, those beeps and pings disturb a lot in having sound sleep. But we have become so much used to remain connected, that even if we may not like it, we have to keep the mobile phone on.

Thank you brakel2, for your response to the question!
Ah! Even I miss those good old standbys. Listening to soothing music at bedtime on my Sony Walkman.
Thanks for sharing your opinion!

Thank you SANJAY ji, for responding to the question!
I agree with you and that's the reason even I keep my mobile phone on during night. But I keep it on minimum volume. With some advantages there are some disadvantages as well.

Even I never turn it off, although I have land line connection also. But mobile phone is convenient, since the numbers are stored. Keeping it on is necessary to remain connected with family members living abroad.
Thanks Just Ask Susan!
Thanks pintsize21, for responding to the question!
Yes, I also keep it on, but on a low volume, so that it does not interfere in the sleep. My family members usually text me, if they have to send some important message. Thanks and have a nice day!

Thank you Harishprasad ji, for your response! I have land line connection, but mobile is more convenient. We have become so much used to remain connected with family/ friends that keeping the mobile on is unavoidable. Good if it does not affect sleep
Thank you manatita44, for responding to the question!
That's the reason I asked this question, since recent studies and researches have shown that mobile phones are affecting sleep patterns and therefore health.
Thanks and have a good day!
