The Sensations were retired this year when we replaced them with HTC Ones, so not a problem.

(I found this thread hilarious; I could almost have been the one who wrote it: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2486180
I'm thinking touch the NFC tag on the way out and the way in, and [...profit?] the HTC One somehow sends signals to the other devices to disable/re-enable their alarms. Don't know how to do this yet, but it seems like a MUCH better idea than having all the other devices constantly scanning the network to make sure they can find [primary phone]. Especially since they might be trying to find it while it's temporarily disconnected.
