    My Dinc today started to prefer being on PDT as opposed EDT today. I checked the settings and confirmed it was set to "Automatic - use network provided values"

    So, here I am , 4:05 here in Sunny Cincinnati, about to head home from work, whilst my Incredible feels I've 3 more hours to work as it's reading 1:05PM. :eek:

    Anyone any ideas?

    Sounds simple but did you try powering on and off? I had this happen once I believe and I deleted the clock widget then reloaded to my screen and selected "my location", Hope that helps.

    Lot of people have had this problem. Sometimes it Hong Kong, China, California, and a few other usual suspects. Hope it gets resolved with the official 2.2.

    You can try:
    Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Network Location > Clear Data

    Works for some people but often times the issue returns.

    I had download several clock widgets yesterday - and subsequentially uninstalled them since yesterday afternoons lil' experiment in time-travel.

    My phone's now happily staying in the same time zone as me. I will however bear all your collective suggestions in mind should it once again decide to take a vacation without me. :cool:

    Thanks to all who responded - it's help like this that makes this place so great!

    Oh, don't I know! I used to live out in the Bay Area (Dublin) and had a terrific time (right up to the point I had to fly to Pasadena several times a week - Hollywood Hills airport was the very antithesis of what I expected... :( )

    Apparently I spoke to soon, my Dinc once again was pleading me to head back into the land of PDT - one wonders if I do that will it next want me in Hawaii - then what? - that's a big ocean! :eek:

    Have you tried to uncheck the "automatic - use network-provided values" and just set it up to manually be -4 GMT ?

    Yes - I've been using that now for the whole weekend and the clocks remained firmly fixed.

    Think I might leave it that way for a while at least until the clocks change back or some OTA FroYo love (whichever comes first!) :rolleyes:

    OK, whilst my last post was optimistic (it changed the time on me a day or so after I posted), I feel more hopeful now. I reset the clock to use the network time the moment I'd been FroYo'd and, since then (touch wood) my phone's time has been stable as a rock. :D
