    Ok, it looks like its an Android bug, but my alarm & my calendar alerts are not working correctly, as well as CalWidget. My Google Cal & the Cal on the phone are correct.

    I had to reboot to get the time updated to what it should be today.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Its known that sometimes the a phone(any) has to reboot to get the correct time from the network, otherwise it will happily continue thinking its time is correct. I don't think its an android bug.

    I'm in Phoenix, AZ and my calender appointments switched to an hour earlier. The way I fixed it was actually online in the gmail calendar. At the top of the page it asked if I wanted to set my timezone to Arizona mountain time. It was highlighted in redish pink. There is probably a way you can change your time zone in settings too but I didn't look. I figured out I had to change it online with gmail because even when I fixed the appointments in my phone when the phone would sync with gmail they would get messed up again.
