That's the only thing I miss from Nokia: alarm goes no matter if the phone is on or not.

This isn't unique to Nokia. All phones I've used will do this. There was one alarm in my HTC Desire that kept going off once a week for a month before I finally realized where the noise was coming from (it was in my closet, so the first few times it happened I thought it was a neighbor's alarm).

I thought the iPhone (and most phones) did that too.

Not like a Nokia device. It will power the phone on from complete off (not sleep or standby) and sound your alarm. Freaked me out when I turned off and boxed up my old N95 and then a week later it turns itself back on and sounds an old alarm I forgot to delete.
