Default Phone has wrong Date/Times

My phone has suddenly appeared with the wrong time and date. Also, on my call log, it has "Tomorrow" as opposed to today or yesterday. Texts messages are no longer in order. What in the world has happened to the phone? I don't understand it at all.

*It has been like this for about a day and a 1/2 now.

Make sure in the settings that you are pulling from the "network" date and time. You may have somehow disabled this and manipulated it without knowing.

You might have this problem, which I'm sure is a problem with Verizon's tower, not the phone:

That is shown as the "current location" in the HTC clock app, HTC weather app, and Google Maps. And the time on the phone (including the clock in the Verizon notification bar) jumps 16 hours ahead of our local time, to coincide with the local time in Xuzhou. This happens with or without GPS enabled.

I noticed a pattern, though. Check out the latitude and longitude pairs for the two cities:

Tustin, CA, USA = 34N, 117W
Xuzhou, China = 34N, 117E

So for some reason, the phone thinks we're in east longitude instead of west whenever we're in Tustin.

For other people having this problem, is there a similar correlation between the latitude and longitude of your actual location and the latitude and longitude of the incorrect location shown on your phone? Lat - Long Finder: This page helps you find Latitude and Longitude

I have an issue with wrong date and time in calendar only now that I am 2.1v3.

My issue is as such, I work 24 hour shifts, and if my shift starts at 7a on monday and goes until 7a on tuesday, it will show it as all day event on monday and not show it on tuesday. not a big deal. If I try and edit it and unselect all day, it will not allow me to change the date. And the times are 4 hours off. Like I use the scroll wheels to select 7a and it will show up on the calendar as 3a. The dates are also off. I do all my calendars on Outlook and sync it with my phone. i only have my synced calendar available on the phone (all others are deselected). now if I go in and start a new even on the phone and make it from 7a-7a it shows up perfectly. Right time and not as an all day event. this only started on 2.1 1.5 did not do this do me.

I have checked that my time zone is selected correctly on the phone. And it shows the right time on the clock. It just is in selecting a time if I am editing a synced event..it is 4 hours off. Any ideas from anyone??

And also had an issue with the phone not recognizing the right location in one app only...I downloaded the moon phase widget just to try it out..and it says based on my GPS location I am in the southern hemisphere...now unless they moved ohio I dont think that is right. But weatherbug and google maps and all the other GPS programs work just fine.
