Today when we went to open fast.  We thought it was time and we opened fast 2 minutes early. After 2 minutes our phone beeped for Maghreb.
Please advise if we have tonrepeat our fast  or is our fast valid?

The answer to your question is as follows:

In the above mentioned case, you have to repeat the fast. Doing iftar mistakenly before time even by 2 minutes invalidates the fast; although there is no kaffarah in this state.
