    Hopefully Apple has fixed the alarm issues but if they haven't make sure you set a separate (not on iPhone) alarm if you need to wake up for something important on Sunday.

    Never hurts to be prepared ;)

    I'm curious, do you have any more explanation for this?

    Thanks!

    In the past, alarms on the iPhone have had problems with alarms not recognizing Daylight Savings Time switches. I remember both Europe and America having issues. "Spring Forward" is this Sunday, so don't be late/early to your morning activities ;-)

    Thanks again :)

    Since it's been five months or so since this cropped up the first time, it will be interesting to see if Apple finally got it fixed.:D

    Welp...my alarm didn't work and it seems that putting a repeating alarm doesn't make it work. I'm still on 4.1 jailbroken. Will update to 4.3 once a JB has been released and hopefully that fixes the issue.

    My alarm worked this morning but actually woke me up an hour early this time.
    Weird, at least I wasnt late but again problems with daylight savings?
    How hard is it Apple?

    I am having this issue as well and would like suggestions on how to fix it. My time changes automatically but my alarms went off an hour early yesterday and today. I removed all alarms and set new ones but any that were set to repeat on weekdays still go off an hour early.

    Yes, it did it again this morning.
    I ended up putting it on for 8:00 so it went off at 7:00am cause when it was setup for 7 it went off at 6.
    Weird bug, I'm still on firmware 4.1 btw.

    Lucky:)
    Maybe its because Im still on 4.1?
    I changed it to an hour later to wake me up on time from now on.
    Gotta love these workarounds for something as basic as an alarm though:D
