    I need to be up at 4:45 am in order to be to work on time, and I reply on my iPone as my alarm. If I set it for 4:45 will it automatically set the time back an hour at 2 am, and then wake me up at 4:45 (the new 4:45)??

    Or will it set time back an hour and then also set my alarm back an hour to compensate (waking me up an hour earlier than I need)?

    Or can I even trust that it will set the time back an hour at all (I seem to remember last year there was an issue with the time change)

    That bug should be fixed

    You would set your alarm as normal and the clock will adjust the clock time

    Make sure you wear your tin foil hat tonight. You know, just in case.

    As for your phone, the time change should be automatic and you should wake up on time.
    However last year there was a boondoggle and it borked up on a lot of people. Might set a second alarm just to be sure.

    I think the time is controlled by your carrier. So if you have AT&T or Verizon the clock will be reset correctly.

    If you have Sprint . . . well good luck!:eek:

    last year, there were bugs where the carrier time would update, but somehow my iphone's time was still messed up internally for alarms. took an update to fix it.

    hopefully, a fool me twice doesn't happen.

    Thank you for posting this. I completely forgot, and would have went to work an hour early without giving it a second thought :p

    Should I turn off the automatic time update then just for tonight?? If it's set on manual, then I can just set it back an hour when I go to bed... that should work right? And then tomorrow put it back to automatic...

    If you want to not have to worry about a problem with the time change. Having Manual control of the process will give you the best chance.

    I would vote to turn off the Automatic Time change, make the change before you go to bed and set your alarm. Then anytime you want to re-enable the Automatic Time change, you are free to turn it back on.

    Just set your alarm and go to bed. You're over-thinking this. The phone will do the right thing. And even if it didn't, the alarm would just go off an hour early - so you wouldn't be late for work anyway.

    But seriously, just leave everything set to auto and set your alarm for the time you would on any other day it will work correctly.

    Well, I can confirm that my iPhone 4S switched to standard time correctly. :)

    Mine hasn't switched, still says it's 2:20. I have auto time zone set and didn't turn off the location services for time zones either.

    When I put in "manual" and set it for east coast, it goes back to standard time, but when I put it in "Set Automatically" it goes back to 2:20 :mad:

    And yes, I'm in the east coast time zone, not in Chicago.

    Here in canada, my iphone did not adapt to the day light savings time too. Have to set it manually.

    Still the same, it's not automatically changing. If I had set an alarm it would be going off at the wrong time now. :mad:

    Glad I was up at the time to change it to manual, else it would be all screwed up.

    Remember, if you set your alarm for 4:45 and it doesn't automatically change, you'll wake up at 3:45.

    True, but still pissed that it didn't change automatically. If this was spring, it would be the opposite and I'd be an hour late.

    WTF. Another daylight savings time gate. Clock doesn't change if you set it to "automatic". This is a very serious bug. Apple disappointed me again. :mad:

    My iPhone 4 did not switch back one hour as it should have. I'm on the east coast. My iPhone says it is 3:57 and it is actually 2:57.

    I spoke too soon. Last night it did switch over at 2:00am to 1:00am. However, this morning, when I got up, I noticed that the phone had switched ahead an hour. All my Calendar appointments (synced through Exchange) are also an hour off. IOW, I have a 12:00 appointment today that says 1:00, so it will go off at the right "real" time.

    I'm on AT&T, by the way.

    Update: Turning the phone off and back on appears to have fixed the clock, and my calendar entries are still at the right absolute time (my 12:00 appointment is back at 12:00). So there is still a bug, but easily fixed.
