    My SGS looses time. Everyday it looses approximately 7-8 minutes. So when the alarm starts at 7:30 am, the time actually is 7:37. I've tried manually to change the time, but the next morning I have the same problem.

    I've tried both Automatic ("use network-provided values") and manually settings, but it does'nt work.

    My firmware is the Froyo JP3 version.

    Please remember that English is not necessarily the first language of all posters.

    There are a lot of people near Newcastle, for which English is a second language.

    Yes, I could easily have used Google Translate, but instead I tried without. So now I've learned something new.

    Anyway, am I the only one with the time problem?

    Unless you can speak 12 languages fluently and have never made a mistake yourself there is no need to play grammar police or make fun of people for a spelling mistake. Everyone makes them and as others have said, English is not always a person's first language. I commend anyone who learns a second language as it isn't an easy thing to do.

    Yaaay... A mod who has some common sense, not like all those other forums.

    To the OP, yes, XXJP3 seems to have a bug in time. I get the same issue too. Seems to get worse for me the more times I restart it!

    If you've flashed to XXJP3 anyhow, I'd get the Modaco ROM with the inbuilt root, I'd install ClockSync or something similar and tell it to sync every 30 minutes. Just in the last few hours I've lost minute.

    Strange onr this, I saw other posts about this time loss thing so kept an eye on mine and it hasn`t lost a minute (JP3) if its a bug you`d think all jp3 installs would be affected

    Yeah, I don't get it.

    Flashed the 2.1 (I9000XWJM5) and the problem disappeared. I might try the JP3 again, maybe I've just been unlucky, but so far it's a mystery to me.

    Just want to add another voice to the mix. I'm also seeing time loss in jp3 that is not present in 2.1. Mine isn't as severe as some have reported, but I'm still losing 2-3 minutes a day.

    Not much to add.
    Either try a factory setting reset, either send back the phone for a replacement.
    In that case, I would try a factory reset first. Not much to loose, if the phone is returned to Samsung, you will loose all your data anyway.
    Just my two cents.
