    Does this affect other alarm Apps or just the one supplied with the iOS? Is it just iOS 4.2.1 that is affected?

    I can't believe such a simple function is so hard to make reliable. Clearly we should not rely on smartphones any more and go back to carrying travel alarm clocks when away from home. I was going to buy a speaker docking station and sling the clock radio but I won't now!

    This morning on the 1/1/2011 I was late for work due to my Iphone alarm not working. It seems to be a common problem is there any fix for this or what am i to do?

    I did not miss a flight, tee time and was not late for work. But I did burn my quiche because the alsrm on my $1000 phone did not work. Any idea when this problem will be sorted?

    It's been reiterated many times already on this thread the repetitive alarms temporarily solve the problem. It is also believed that the problem will disappear after the 3rd of Jan 2011.

    I was unaware of this, as my alarm is set as a repeat for every day... but since reading this, I tested it, and mine does not work on a single alarm...

    Following the link earlier, I changed the date to the 3rd January 2011, and it does appear to fix itself from then...

    Very strange... Lucky for me I am off work anyway until the 4th....

    iPhone 3G, iOS 4.2.1, Central Europe: not working.

    "Am I using Windows or what?". disappointing.

    I hope, such an embarrassing start into 2011 will wake up Steve (reg. QM).

    Fortunately Windows never had these problems, very embarrassing for Apple. They still couldn’t get it right after it happened once before. Their iOS gets so much worse than windows. Dissapointing!!!!

    Hypologistic,

    A Happy New Year to you too but -

    There is absolutely no point in using this forum space to complain to, or to ask Apple to do anything.

    As Templeton Peck said earlier, these are user to user forums. There's no way of knowing whether anyone at Apple actually looks at any of this stuff.

    ... except that SOMEONE looks, as threads Apple don't like sometimes disappear.

    If like me, you (or anyone else) wishes to make a complaint, I urge you to do it at this address.

    http://www.apple.com/feedback

    Personally, if I have a serious appointment to keep, I always use two alarms on different devices (one's a clock.) There's nothing to stop you doing the same. I'm not being smug, I just don't take chances I can avoid.

    I'm disgusted too and I've already told 'em so.

    According to earlier posters, if it wakes you up every day, you shouldn't have a problem.

    My iPhone alarm is not working as well. Is anyone at Apple listening?
  • mattbaya Level 1 (0 points)
    Seriously? How could this not have been tested? Great way to start the new year, thanks a lot Apple!
  • Grizzz Level 1 (0 points)
    People get over yourselves - if your appointment etc, was that important you should have a backup alarm - always! Up until recently I was using an HTC Wildfire and the alarm failed at least twice a week for no apparent reason (and yes it was on repeat) To talk of suing Apple is nothing short of ludicrous - for every time your iPhone wakes you up and you get to that interview/plane/work on time, do you send Apple a thank you or some money? No? Thought not.
    This is nothing more than an inconvenience, a nuisance - move on people, move on.
