Default Alarm quit working after DST

Please Login to Remove!

Monday Morning I figured I just overslept. But this morning I "overslept" too. Quick test revealed my alarm is totally non-functional. Set the alarm, and it doesn't go off at the appointed time.

I'm running (I think) the latest available T-Mo OS for my 8700g, 4.1.0.346. I also seem to have "TimezoneOtaPatcher" 2.2, pushed to me by my BES I guess.

Anyone else having Alarm trouble? Any suggestions?

I ran into the same thing just now trying out the alarm. I'm using a 7130e on US Cellular V 4.0.359. I didn't have the problem until I installed the OTA patch.

Same thing here. I have sprint 8703e and when I go to option date time I have to set to Blackberry not Network. Network time is still an hour behind. And my alarm doesn't work on either.

I just tried setting an alarm on my co-worker's 8703e, she has not applied the DST patch and the alarm worked fine for her.

Mine started working again after just a couple days. All you need to do is miss work twice. Then you'll be fine.
