FIX that problem by manually setting your iphone 4 to 4th of Jan, then the alarm works! I have NO repeating alarms on either of my iphone 4\'s. life is just too irregular!

...oh mapple...anyway, there has to be a mix of elements to make this bug kick in, I just tested my alarm and didn\'t have any issues but then again I believe it has to do with the applications ur running, it\'s obvious anyway that is bad coding!

Is your alarm set to go off every day of the week including weekends? because the glitch did not occur to me and i was surprised. Then I went to the alarm app, played around with it, and found out that the glitch only happens when not all of the days are checked off but if all are checked then for some reason the alarm foes off.

Not bull. My alarms failed to wake me up today, and I looked to see if they had gone off or not, and they hadn\'t, so I assumed another glitch from apple. Came back this evening to this news, so I turned out to be right. I have an iPhone 3G on 4.2.1 btw. Stupid Apple.

Affected me on my iPhone 4 -- was an hour late for work as my 2 year old son seemed to also have the apple bug and work up an hour late. Seriously? How many times is it now that they had this issue with what should be a straight forward app? Is it twice? I think it\'s the third time. This is embarrassing for a \"smart\" phone Don\'t they learn for their mistakes? If that happened more than once where I work, heads would roll.
