    ok so I woke up this morning to find that my Ally has the wrong time in the notification bar, as well as one of the widgets that i have for an alarm which shows when the next alarm comes up. however, the correct time shows in the weather widget.

    as it is Sunday morning, i looked up daylight savings and noticed that the clocks in Europe get set back an hour today. could my phone somehow be in European mode or something? maybe an android 2.1 glitch, since it came out after the last fall switch if I recall and therefore may not have been tested for a problem like this.

    I can't find an option to switch the clock manually anywhere, is there a way to fix this or do i just wait a week for the US daylight savings to click in?

    if you go into settings and go into 'date and time' you'll be able to set the time in there

    It happened to me also. I was late for work because of it. I just powered my phone off and on and it corrected itself.

    eh actually no, i tried that and the only options in the date and time section are to change the formats between 24 hour clock and 12 hour, and to switch the date format from mm/dd/yy to the other formats, not to change the actual time and date.

    Is there an option at the top to set it to auto? If so untick it then you should be able to change the time, although I guess you've already sorted it now.
