  • Daylight Savings Time Wreaks Havoc on iPhones... Again


    Daylight Savings Time has struck again. On Sunday, many iPhone users started complaining about their iDevice botching the time change. Rather than pushing the iPhone clock one-hour forward, a lot of iPhones went the other direction - that is, setting clocks back an hour instead. By Sunday morning there was a large but unknown number of iPhone users two hours behind schedule according to mobile device.

    Although this isn't the first time that a seasonal time change has befuddled the iPhone (on New Year's day there were alarm-related issues, just as there were at the end of daylight savings time last November), today was the first time the issue actually trended with some gusto on Twitter. On Sunday morning it seemed everyone was full of complaints about the unexplained two-hour mix-up.

    Of course, many iPhone owners have been through this situation before. And they're well aware of the easy fix. If your iPhone's clock was somehow mistakenly set back, simply shut down the device and then restart it. Switching the iPhone to “airplane mode” and then back will also do the trick.

      Oh the almighty Apple. Can sell millions of iPhones with lots of expensive fancy advertising, but is again duped by a simple clock.

      Worked fine for me. Changed to 3:00AM as soon as 2:00AM hit. Wonder if it is firmware specific or device specific.

      Unlimited can be a very good thing. Odd thing was, ATT gave me the unlimited option several weeks ago when I bought an iPhone 4. Oddness

      So unfair. I tried 4 times. They kept telling me they are unable to do it. I threatened to switch to VZW in hopes they would (I would've stayed if they did it) but they just told me they will "help me minimize my data usage."

      ...I don't want to minimize I want to get unlimited lol. Well coverage with VZW for me is better here anyway.

      Maybe it's because I'm a premier ATT customer? Idk it's $5 more than what I pay now, but I never got over 2 Gb anyway, so I just save $5.

      Again with the clock issue. #failapple

      I'll test it on my phone tonight.

      Nevermind, no fail for me. Alarm works perfectly at the right time.

      I didn't have any issues. Maybe it was user error?
