Daylight saving time starts, did your tech change?

By Daniel Chubb - Mar 13, 2011

Some people forget about moving their clocks when daylight saving time starts, which being human is easily done although we wouldn’t expect our technology to be so forgetful.

Yesterday we touched on how gadgets can fail during daylight saving time, and the biggest tech problem of late was when the iPhone 4 alarm clock was an hour out of sync. Over 90 of our readers told their story back in November.

Daylight saving time in 2011 seems to have gone more smoothly, although we’ve heard of a few problems in the last few hours, one user said “Great. My iPhone is one hour late!” Have you had any problems with your iPhone or other cell phone clocks?

Sunday’s can be seen as the lazy day of the week, but that’s not the same for everyone and having the wrong time can still cause big problems, even on Sunday’s.

November 6 is when standard time returns. Today your tech should have set the clocks one hour ahead, now that daylight saving time has started, did your tech change?

    We have 2 iPhones (3GS) and neither of them changed time. I can turn it off of auto and manually set it. A reboot did not do the trick either? I guess Apple has a problem to solve!

    My iphone shows 5:00 AM on top, but the 6:00 AM alarm did go off. Strange… very strange.

      I have the opposite problem! I set mine for 6am but it went off at 5am :'( two days in a row, I adjusted the auto time change and still no improvement.

  • Kathy

    My iPhone went ahead two hours as well, I turned the auto time change off and that fixed the problem.

    Not just Verizon, I'm afraid… I'm an AT&T user and am experiencing glitches as well. At 2am here (CO), my iPhone jumped BACK an hour. Once 2am hit the iPhone clock again, it jumped ahead… to 3am. Still one hour behind my friends!

  • Mary

    My iPhone 4 went ahead 2 hours! Grrr with a 5:40 wake up this morning

    • Leah
