Tested with my own ambience (Ambience-AllBlack) and tested with The First One ambience.

Works as it should with my own ambience, the alarm tone is Jolla's standard alarm.wav. The phone woke up 1 minute before the alarm was due to sound and on expiry of that minute, the alarm sounded at full volume and showed the alarm UI - 100% working.

A slightly different story with The First One ambience (of which all tones are .mp3 not .wav). The phone woke up 1 minute before the alarm was due to sound. Then the alarm UI was triggered but I did not hear any sound at all.

My guess now is, the phone cannot play any .mp3 tones when the alarm is used this way, but .wav seems to work just fine. So, I set the standard Jolla alarm.wav within The First One ambience settings and waited. Sure enough, the phone wakes, then the alarm sounded as it should, full volume with UI.

So it appears that it is the file type that is chosen for the alarm that is the problem - why?, I have NO IDEA! :)

(All tones for me are on the device, not the sdcard).
