    I am in a state that doesn't follow fall back/spring forward time changing (daylight savings).

    Today my iphone alarm went off for 6:15 am but said 5:15am! I freaked out like it was waking me up an hour early but my house clock AND the iphone time were correct! Phew! My iphone alarm just displayed wrong!!!

    You would think after all these issues that eventually Apple would figure out how daylight savings works.:rolleyes::apple:

    Happened to me too. I live in AZ. My iPhone said it was 5:45 a.m. when I woke up, but once I unplugged the phone, it immediately and automatically switched to 6:45 a.m.

    Ask Siri when daylight savings time ends and she says Nov. 7.
    That's incorrect. Today is Nov. 6.
    Despite Siri's error, my phone's time changed appropriately.

    I went to sleep in Toronto and woke up in Halifax, according to my 4S.
    And the calendar time is wrong by 1 hour, even after I fix time.
    Apple fail.

    Ha too funny. Me and my iPhone 4 have been in Phoenix for the last few days. Up until last night iOS 5 thought I was in Cupertino. This morning after being woken up an hour early and then toggling "Set Automatically" a couple times it thinks I'm in Denver. But hey the time is actually right, oh except if I look at the day view on the calendar then the time is an hour fast. Quite the vote of confidence that Apple actually knows what they're doing. :-(

    Happened to me too. I'm in Tucson, AZ, and my phone read 7:45 this morning when it was 8:45... I almost missed an important awards ceremony!

    my phone thought i was in New York when DST ended and thus didn't change the time appropriately as i am in Chicago. Thankfully a simple restart of my phone fixed the issue. totally odd and frustrating last night.
