    It’s not just the verizon phones, I think. I had this same issue yesterday on my sprint htc evo 4g. My time was showing exactly 10 minutes faster. I rebooted the phone and it worked fine but it took maybe about couple of hours before I saw the same issue again.

    I also have an Evo 4g, and have the same thing, about 10 minutes off.  I was sweating it this morning thinking I was running way late for work. 

    If you want to fix manually: Home Screen -> Menu -> Settings -> Date & Time

       the same thing just happened to me. Wrong time (an hour early) and it thinks I’m in Rio. I am so not in Rio! a re-boot fixed the problem for five minutes. menu>setting>date and time. Uncheck Automatic. I’m keeping it uncheked.

    3 days, 3 different times my Evo 4G on Sprint had wrong time. First 1 hour behind, next 3 hours and today 12 hours behind.  This happened only a few times in nearly 2 years.  I have “use wireless network” set to determine location and “Automatic” date and time set by network provider. This last one could be the culprit. If Sprint or Verizon (secondary) get messed up, I’m at risk. A cube wall share has the Droid on Verizon and had his location misreported as being in TX when were are in MA at the same time I had that problem.

    THE REASON OUR DATES ARE WRONG IS BECAUSE ON 12-21-2012 THE EARTH IS GONING TO BE IN THE CENTER OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM. THE EARTH’S POLES ARE GOING TO SHIFT AND ONE-THIRD OF THE PLANET WILL BE WIPED OUT. LOOK UP 2012 POLE SHIFT ON YOUTUBE. MAY GOD FORGIVE US.

    My HTC Incredible time change some time around midnight and three am displaying one to two hours incorrect time difference, causing my alarm clock to ring at 5:30 am instead of the 4:45 am that it is programed to ring… Any solutions to this problem?

    zte cell phone boots on the splash screen saying mauve music shows time and date 12 yrs in the past when it finishes booting up it shows correct date. This has started after cricket installed its update from factory. If I try to do it all over again I will loose all my apps and data

    I have this happen every night. My alarm never goes off in the AM anymore because at 7AM it reads that it is 1 or 2 AM. I have a Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Discover, Android System. This is so crazy! It just happened 5 mins ago. At 2:45PM sent a text, 2 mins later, tried to send another and it read 10:44AM. Someone help explain this!

    My HTC One has suddenly started to think that I am in Adelaide (½ hours difference) and not in Sydney where I actually am. It is only the time widget that is wrong, everything else knows I am in Sydney.

    I had an issue with my time being off by 2 mins, when I checked Settings -> Date Time, Use Time Provided by network was unchecked. I suspect that an update unchecked this setting. Once I checked it the time was correct again.
