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.
And Allah knows best
