[Verizon] 421 Clock on Sourcery and changing alarm tones

I thought I would share my findings on how to change the alarm tone in Sourcery. I don't know if it is common to other roms since I haven't tested it, but I hope this may help.

Background: I moved to version 455 and 456 and lost the ability to change the alarm tone. I did a lot of research to figure out what was going on and why the tone selection option wasn't visible.

Findings: After my research, I didn't find any help other than the basic stuff. Then I moved my phone to landscape and voila, the option to change the alarm tone appeared in the alarm option choices.

I think it is strange it won't show up in Portrait mode, but it does in Landscape. So, if you are annoyed by polonium or whatever that horrible tone is, turn your phone to landscape and pick another one.

That is all I have to say about that... :p
Or, you can change the font size back to normal so it all fits on the screen :)
