I set my alarm this morning shut it off upon waking. All good. However, the alarm has been randomly going off through the afternoon. I do not have "Bedtime" set, I have closed the clock app (and have cleared all Apps) and I have re-started the phone. Why does it do this and how can I make it stop??

Have you tried making sure alarms are actually turned off (perhaps even deleted) in the Clock app?

Well if this happens to anyone else (and I have read on some sites that this has happened to some people) set an alarm with a different tone/sound. After the new alarm goes off it fixes the random alarm bug. Well at least it did for me.

Wow this has never happened to me. Definitely has to be pretty rare! Thanks for the info. Setting an alarm with a different tone/sound. After it goes off it fixes the bug - thanks. I will remember this if this happens to me. Hope your weekend is better!

Well disregard. It went off again. What's so strange its that is goes off at random times. Like for example 7:49pm, 8:10pm and lastly 9:28pm. I have no idea what is causing this and how to stop it.

At this point, I'd consider a factory reset :( --- or back up via iTunes then restore at the very least.
