    How to Change the Alarm Clock Melody?

    This shouldn't be rocket science but nowhere is there a means to change the melody for the alarm clock. Everything else gives one the option but the alarm is locked on something easily unheard. The only options available are: Melody, Vibration, Vibration and Melody, or Briefing.

    If you're using the stock alarm clock, it will use the tone you have set up for "notifications". You can go into system settings, sound, default notifications, and change it there. I use Alarm Clock Xtreme....it gives you a lot more features. Such as a gradual ringtone that slowly gets louder, multiple snooze options (like tapping a large or small button on the screen, tap the volume button, enter a math question, shake the phone, etc.) It's just a better overall alarm app in my opinion.


    We have a sister site that's set up specifically for the galaxy S3 if you'd like to check that out. We've got a bunch of very helpful and knowledgeable folks over there, so if you have a question and find you're not getting an answer right away here, feel free to check out S3forums.net and we'll take care of you over there.
    Good luck!

    "Default Notification" only affects the text message notification.

    Hmmm...I'm not sure than since I don't use the default alarm app. Hopefully someone else can chime in with a fix for you. Good luck!

    If you using default alarm app.
    The only option you need to override the default alarm ringtone xxxx.ogg in the root of your system.

    You need to be rooted.

    CR6 and Astrix are right, and the key to all of this is being rooted. A rooted phone is almost totally configurable and gives you a LOT of options.
    GSM Galaxy Note 3 (Black) - Straight Stock
    GSM Galaxy Note 2 (Titanium) - Rooted running Jedi X20 Rom
    GSM Galaxy Nexus (Black) - Straight Stock

    I don't ever use my phone as alarm, but I took a look, as I also have an S3. All I had to do was go to the clock app, tap "Create alarm", tap "More", and the option for "Alarm tone" should show up. Hope this works for you!

    Duh, sorry folks. I didn't see that I could scroll up where it says 'More', and of course, there's the option to change it after all. Once again, Sorry and Duh...
