    Hi everyone,
    I've been having trouble with this for a little while now. Done a lot of looking around but can't find anyone with a similar problem. I've updated everything on iTunes and also restarted the phone but I'm not able to turn off an alarm I have set at 6:35am every day. When I go to the alarm control settings, all alarms are turned off and none are even set for this time.
    Does anyone have any ideas? This isn't a big deal, but it's terrible on weekends!
    Thanks,
    Adam :apple:

    Clock app > Alarm > Edit > tap red circle with dash in center to delete the offending alarm.

    As I mentioned in the original post, the alarm no longer exists.

    I meant deleting all the alarms you have and rebooting afterwards.

    There are two places to set “alarms” or alerts, in the clock app and in the calendar app. Do you have something set in Calendar?

    Figured it out. Didn't realize you could actually delete alarms, thought you could only turn them off and/or change the time of them. I deleted a couple alarms and then new ones started to show. I couldn't scroll to these for some reason? Anyway, the 6:35am one showed up, I was able to delete it, and sleep in :cool:
    Thanks for the tip of deleting, when I said I deleted them before I was only turning them off! :)

    That's weird you couldn't scroll down, but at least they showed up after you started culling.
    Next time, try to limit your alarms to four. You can always edit the times.

    Thanks everyone for the help!

    That's just it. You shouldn't be limited to only seeing four. I have about five alarms. I'm able to see them all fine.
    Oh well.
