Clock alarm tone set in ambiance is not respected if device is set to silent, instead the default alarm tone is played when clock alarm is triggered.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. open gallery, go to ambiances

  2. edit ambiance and set new tone for clock alarm

  3. take ambiance into use

  4. open clock and set alarm to 2 minutes ahead

  5. set device to silent

  6. wait until clock alarm triggers

expected result: alarm tone selected in step 2 is played with alarm

actual result: default clock alarm tone is played

For me it is important to have the clock alarm tone played even if the phone is set to silent. But then the tone which was set should be played not the default one. Sometimes I don't want to be disturbed by phone calls, but want to wake up using the alarm

I agree with @thwint on the "wake up" thing, but sometimes I want "Silent" to mean really silent. Currently, even Countdowns make a sound when the a phone is set to silent mode.

I too would appreciate 'Silent' to be actual silent with vibration (patterns please ;)

There is a solution in in the silent ambiance you need to add actions for all things (call, chat, calendar, ...) with "no sound", then it is really silent. But IMHO this should be the basic setting for the ambiance from the basic installation.

For me at default ringtone is set as alarm when device is set to silent. Custom alarm is only played, when device is not silent. Can be reproduced with any ambiance. Stupid...
