A few weeks ago we were all woken up an hour early now this morning my iPhone decided to revert back to the proper time thats loaded in my alarm so made me an hour LATE!

How many other GeekZone Members had this??

No issues at all for me, has been working again for a few weeks after the initial issue was fixed.

I'm on a 3G running 4.1

The "fix" that has worked for a few of us appears to be simply deleting all your alarms and creating new ones ...

Don't stop reading yet though - yes yes, you're right, this didn't fix the problem initially ...

But it seems that at some point (last weekend) something changed within our phones (perhaps the outdated daylight saving calendar) and doing this appears to now get everything back to running again ...

but you MUST delete all alarms ... I left one in and that still went off at the wrong time even though new ones were going at the correct time. Creating new alarms is fine though.

Interesting, seems pretty straightforward and worth a go!
