Bell Smartphone Customers See Clocks Fall Back 1 Hour Early by Mistake

Some Bell customers saw the clocks on their smartphones fall back one hour by mistake on the weekend. The problem? The end of Daylight Saving Time isn’t supposed to happen until this weekend on Sunday.

Numerous iPhone in Canada customers let us know their phones fell back one hour last night, with some believing it may have been an iOS bug, as we have seen in the past. The issue also appears to have affected Virgin Mobile customers too.

Some Bell customers were not happy about the error and vented on social media:

Were you affected by this Bell time setting mistake?
