Default Crazy question ;/

I have 2 virgin phones n 1 boost. All the phones will display the time at least 5 hours ahead and then revert back. This has been going on since yesterday, I'm in louisiana. Any one else experiencing this?

Thanks

I had this happen occasionally on my HTC Evo 4G (on Sprint) when I had the phone set to set the clock by network time. I wake up at 5:00 every morning, and sometimes my alarm would go off at midnight. Turns out that for some reason my phone thought I was located in Reykjavik, Iceland (I'm actually in Baltimore). So I switched that feature off and set the time manually.

If you have root access try NTPsync from the play store.

Have had no time issues since installing.

There is an app called clock sync that syncs the clock via the internet instead of your carrier. I use this since on none of my VMU devices is there an option to set your own time.

Thanks I'll look into that, everyone with boost and VM that I know in my area is having this problem constantly still.
