"iPhone owners cheering in the new year may be in for a surprise Saturday morning thanks to an iOS bug that seems to prevent one-time alarms from sounding once their clock rolls over into 2011. The bug apparently impacts devices running iOS 4.0.2 and higher, and alarms that were set both before and after the new year transition."
Hmmm, ran into this myself this morning when my alarm didn't go off at 4am like it was supposed to do. No matter since the party was still going on at a neighbor's house so I was awake anyway. But this is good to know for tomorrow and Monday, so the fix is a simple change to your alarm. All you have to do is make is a recurring alarm by going into edit mode and selecting every day of the week for the alarm. It will then display as "Every Day Alarm" on the screen above instead of simply "Alarm." This is supposed to be corrected on January 3rd so to be safe, set yourself one alarm as recurring and one as normal and see what happens. If both go off I'd say you can discontinue your recurring alarms.
