Default n00b needs help with Hero

So I recently traded in my iFail for an unlocked Telus HTC Hero, everything is working fine except for the network time, when I choose the option to use network time to set the time and date it jumps over to Atlantic time when I am in Pacific time, Im on Rogers in British Columbia, could this be that the APN is bad?

I had the same problem after loading MoDaCo 3.0 rom. I recommend to turn off the auto update. That was the solution for me. Now, after I restored to original rom, I don't have this problem. I think there is a bug in this rom. .....

Well obviously you want to go to settings and find "my location services" And make sure they are all turned off, then go to date and time settings and check the automatic time settings, make sure its on go back to location services and turn that back on , it worked for me don't know if it will work for you, you will still need to use sms time fix, which can be found on the market
