    Smart Phone Not Very Smart

    Me and my wife use our iphone 3gs for our alarms to wake up and when day light savings time came around our phones alarms woke us up at 7am instead of 6am. Our alarms were still set at 6am and the phones time changed automatically but the stupid alarm went wonky Still love our phones though

    I hope you knew about this glitch beforehand, it was one of CNN's top headlines leading up to DST

    If you don't set it up as a repeating alarm it won't happen. The 4.2 firmware will be out really soon and it has the fix built in. Just test an alarm without setting repeating days and it should work for you.

    There ya go Jeff something the Droid does better than the iPhone..they make better alarm clocks at least twice a year..LOL

    I wasn't aware of this glitch either but like Walt said looks like the iOS 4.2 is going to fix some of these minor little things that crop up from time to time..
