But I noticed that if I powered off the device (hold the power button for a few seconds and choose power off) and switch it back on, that the date is now back to 2008 (and Google Play stops working again).
I thought it could be to do with the Syncing of the device, but that seems to be switched on. So how can I fix this? It's really bugging me!
I'm on 4.0.4 of Android.
Do you have the 3G version? Do you have Automatic Date and Time checked under Date and Time in SEttings?
Why do you turn it off completely? It is not supposed to be turned off, just put into sleep. It will not draw more than 1% per day if you have it in sleep with flight mode on.
