    Ok, I have my phone where it doesn't pull the time/date from the network.
    If I pull the battery the day/time gets reset to Dec 1969.
    Quick fix to simply check get time from network then uncheck it again, just wondering...

    Does this happen to anyone else or is my droid just "special"

    Thats the way its supposed to work. But if you dig in to check and uncheck why not just set the time manually?

    If thats the way its suppose to work then great, seems a little odd but was just making sure.
    I don't reset time/date manually each time because its faster to just check then uncheck again to get all the info back in correctly.
    I uncheck the option just so that my phone won't keep switching times as I live/work right on a timezone line

    Being that Android is based on Linux, which is based on Unix, I'd imagine it has something to do with this: Unix time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Just a little reading as to why that happens, if you're interested. :)
