 Hi ,
        I have created an app with using Alarm Manager and added the 7
min alarm. Find the code below.

package com.example.ReminderTest;

import java.util.Calendar;

public class ReminderTest extends Activity implements OnClickListener{
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
        private String TAG="ReminderTest";
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        Button btn=(Button)findViewById(R.id.Button01);

        public void onClick(View v) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                 Log.d(TAG,"OnCLick Set tne time 1");
                        /*Set the Timer*/
                     Log.d(TAG,"OnCLick Set tne time");
                         Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();

                         Intent intent = new Intent(this, 
                         intent.putExtra("alarm_message", "O'Doyle Rules!");
                         // In reality, you would want to have a static 
variable for the
request code instead of 192837
                         PendingIntent sender = 
PendingIntent.getBroadcast(this, 192837,
intent, PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT);

                         // Get the AlarmManager service
                         AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager) 
                         am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal.getTimeInMillis(), 


Now my question ,  would the set alarm  persist after reboot of
phone ?

No, it won't. The way handle it is to implement code to receive BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast, and start the alarm (and perhaps the service) then. -- Kostya Vasilyev -- WiFi Manager + pretty widget -- http://kmansoft.wordpress.com --
