    I'm having the same problem. I mean seriously Apple how hard is it to code an alarm clock.

    The only upside to this is that it's supposed to fix itself on the 3rd.

    I also woke up this morning and wondered why my alarm did not work. After trying to set it numerous times with no luck, I went online to find out that I was not the only one with this issue. I am hoping that a fix comes soon, I depend on that alarm to wake me up for work in the morning. I did learn that if you set the alarm for multiple days it does work.. So that is a way to get the alarm to work..Hope this problem gets fixed soon!!

    some bit-twiddler figured out a temporary fix. set alarm as repeating, then disable after it goes off. works.

    was some programmer at apple playing a prank??

    I can also confirm to this in Sweden, none of my alarms have gone off today!! So annoying, what has a alarm set on a specific hour and minut got to do with which day it is!!

    Lately I'm just getting more and more dissapointed on these products from Apple.

    Thanks to this "bug", today, as a pilot I lost my flight, because I didn´t wake up on time!!!

    Apple should have warned users about that problem!

    I'm due for an upgrade very soon and this bug has been the straw that finally broke the camel's back. I'm sick of iPhone, sick of arrogant Apple and their unwillingness to listen to customers and actually FIX things. My iPhone is going on eBay and my upgrade will be a NON-Apple handset! Roll on upgrade date!

    Why exactly are you dependent on a cell phone as your alarm clock?
    A $20 alarm clock doesn't have these issues.

    Personally, I would never depend on a cell phone as my alarm clock.

    I agree Apple should fix the issue, but also no reason for so many to get so upset about a minor issue.

    Exactly how would Apple have been able to warn you of the bug if they didn't know about it until it happened, and if they knew about it in advance, why wouldn't they just fix it?

    I hope your troubleshooting/analytic skills during a flight emergency are better than you displayed here.

    Anyone have any idea when or how to fix this problem? Would be nice if they let us know what was going on. Really need to be late for work.

    It usually helps to read the other posts in the thread. The fix has been discussed. Make your alarms repetitive.
