The alarm clock on your Apple iPhone stopped working starting today, will fix itself on January 3rd

Until Apple deals with this via a maintenance upgrade, there is a way around the current problem. Simply set the alarm clock to wake you at the same time for recurring days and once you are up and ready to face the world, delete the unnecessary alarms. Sure, it is a little hassle, but it will probably take you less than a minute to make the correction each day.
According to 9to5 Mac, some testing shows that the problem will self-correct on January 3rd which means that you will need to do the above temporary fix for only for a couple of days. It was also reported that those with an Apple iPhone running iOS 4.1 were having the same problem with the alarm clock on their device.

wow, another iphone fail. guess they wanted to start this year off with bad press too. "hmm.. how do we beat antennagate... lets make it so alarms dont work!!!" lol. thatguy... i doubt u had all those phones. And i can tell u from experience my Vibrant gets a better battery life most days compared to an iphone4. the difference is, you have to be intelligent on an android device and remember that the phone multitasks, something that the iphone 4 wont let u do because apple thinks ur too dumb to manage your battery yourself.

there are many ways to save battery on the iPhone4. mine now lasts two days!. Try putting the brightness about half way instead of full. When you no your not going to find wifi, turn it of - that helps the most. Also turn location services off if your not going to be using google maps to locate yourself for a while. If you find them unneccesary, turn push notifications off. then it wont be constantly checking all your apps Last, double click the home button and the multitasking pops-up, when there are a lot of apps on it, hold one and then a "-" sign pops-up on them which means delete off multitasking bar, and then go through and delete them all.
