    My alarm is usually set for 05:50. Last night, I sat it for 06:45 today. It didn't go off and so I missed out on going to a theme park, as the minibus left at 08:30 and I woke up at 9. What happened?

    Could have been you accidentally set it for the wrong day? Maybe you just slept through it.

    I set it to everyday. Maybe I did sleep through it, but I never have before.

    was the volume on low?
    if you have a jailbroken phone, you could get an app called alarming that maxes the volume of the alarm when it goes off, then returns to normal

    although there have been times when it goes off and i still slept through it

    Your sound button, on the side, was probably switched off?

    You always need a backup alarm, don't be foolish.

    Phone companies should have legal action taken against them for this!! Think of all the psychological stress it causes!

    Okay, maybe that's a bit over the top, but it really does mess with your head. I've had it happened to me a couple of times and from that moment on, you're constantly paranoid about it happening again and resulting in you sleeping through something important.
