    I need 3 alarms in 30 min to 15 min intervals to wake me up : P. And from personal experience, my phone alarm has never let me down. However, the "$5-15 no name alarms" screwed me over when the power goes out but my phone has always saved me

    If this fix does result in 4.2.2, I'm sure there will be a fix out on cydia for jailbreakers...

    Yeah real alarm clocks are just great until you accidentally unplug em from the wall socket.

    I solely rely in my iPhone for an alarm and I have has no problem with it ever! No daylight savings or this problem. I always have recurring alarms and I don't have snooze on. So I'm just lucky I guess. I payed good money for my iPhone and I'll be damned if I can't use one of it's basic features that it's meant for!!!!

    Sound like another excuse for Apple to put out another update just when we have a untethered jailbreak just about ready to distribute!!

    I think it's not good enough especially after the Daylight Saving fiasco we experienced in Australia in October 2010. Shame on Apple's product engineers & testers.

    Since Apple has a known issue surrounding their alarm click app I don't see why anyone would still use it as a sole means of waking up. That's just dumb.

    Add to that, folks were reporting at least 2 days prior to new years that this was an issue and would happen.

    Add to that, this affected NON-recurring alarms. If you are using this as your alarm clock I would think you'd have a recurring alarm set, right? (I think some of the folks complaining on here just want to jump on the bandwagon.)

    I shouldn't need a backup alarm, alarms aren't just for waking up when you've got an alarm clock by the bedside. It's BS that it doesn't work properly. I'll use a 3rd party app from now on.

    If you don't have backups for IMPORTANT things in life, you deserve to be nipped in the azz to wake you up.
    So I guess you are walking around with a spare cell phone in your pocket...you know, just in case the "phone" app suddenly doesn't work? Because you know, that's one of those "important" things that us idiots and children should have a back up for. That's got to be one of the most ignorant arguments that I have ever heard. The bottom line is that simple things like the alarm should work...period. I can understand there are glitches, but on the flip side, it's perfectly understandable that people are gonna be upset when **** stops working. And as for the "everyone should have known since it's been two days" excuse, that's B.S. Too. Not everyone is checking the boards every day for possible glitches or problems.

    @ReggieSmith and other apologists

    I'd like to know what right you people making these comments have to judge the way others use their phones.

    I use the iPhone alarm because it is enough for me. I don't use the recurring alarm because my working hours change daily.

    It is an alarm clock. It is described as such and it should work as such and it is Apple's responsibility to ensure this. Not mine.

    To be told "why are you using the iPhone alarm clock as your only means of waking up? That's just dumb" would not be acceptable if I heard it on the phone from Apple support, simply because it isn't true. It is no more acceptable to hear from a random person on the Internet - and more importantly, it is still not true.

    Woke up a half hour late for work today haha. I rely on the iphone alarm because you can set multiple alarms very easily, and since Im constantly sleeping in different places (for all you haters :P). I can confirm that the alarms do work now!

    This alarmed failed me 3 times. I've had a first gen iPhone for 3 years and have used that solely as my alarm (ditching my old iHome and my iPod Video). About 2 months ago, I upgraded (swited to AT&T) the iPhone 4. It's a fantastic phone and have been able to carry less stuff.

    I no longer carry my digita camera every where. I no longer carry my Flip camera, I don't bring my iPod with me. These are 3 devices I don't need anymore because of the iPhone. I've been using the alarm feature for 3 years without any failure... and suddenly there's a "programming glitch"!!! Really Apple!?

    Somedays I use the app "Sleep Cycle" other times I use the built in Alarm app. Sleep cycle will sometimes wake me up earlier than I want (I know I can change the settings) but I have to have it laying in bed with me instead of on the dresser (well at least to monitor my sleep.... and it's VERY ACCURATE!)

    I needed to wake up for the day to prepare for a show (luckily I woke up 10 mins after my alarm should have gone off) then I set it later to tell me to leave for my show. Both times it failed. What a horrible glitch Apple!

    I sure am glad this never happened to me in my PaRtY days!!! I used to /always/ rely on my phone to wake me up for work after staying up till 5-6 am playing beer pong, and then having to sleep on someones couch, and then wake up 2-3 hours later.

    I feel bad for those who Got screwed by the iPhone devs that couldn't design a legit clock app.

    I set my clock last night just because and when I got up this morning I got up late. I was not aware of any talk about the clock being messed up. The first thing I did was head for the internet to see if there was anything going on as far as news about it and low and behold I found a lot of it and how people got up late because of the alarm clock not working.

    I have used the alarm since I bought the first iPhone. It has never let me down until last night.
