Default My Phone goes Back in Time...

I woke up this morning without the help of my alarm on my phone thank goodness. I had my desk alarm set for 5:15 and I looked at my phone and it said: 2:10 Jan. 23.

WTH? I tried to refresh and see if maybe it was just "stuck" and finally rebooted the phone. It initially went to the right time and then went back to the Jan. 23 date and crazy time. It wasn't until I got into a 4G area that the time and date automatically corrected itself.

Was fine all day. Then tonight as I go to put my phone on the charger at 10pm... I look at my phone: Hey its 7:29pm... on Jan 23 again!

This will NOT DO! I have had my phone since launch day and never had this issue. No rooting or tinkering done to it. No new apps recently. Started Yesterday Night. I am on a network extender for use in my home since I am on a borderline coverage area. My computer clocks are all working just fine.

I don't even know where to start in trouble shooting this. I set the clock manually... but what gives?

Do I Call Verizon?

The phone sets its date and time by the tower it's connected to. If it's not finding any towers, it's working like a digital watch - which, if don't set it right, won't have the right time.

(But if your phone can go back far enough I'll buy it from you - I'd like to go back to the late 1940s.)
