    Wrong time on cell phone question

    My wife and I have Verizon for cell phones and have had for years (starting with an old bag phone). We've traveled from Indiana to Texas, Colorado, Canada, and up and down the east coast from D.C. to Key West, our phones always change time when we enter a new time zone, etc. We're currently in Chocowinity, NC in a campground, and a friend is with us, we all have Verizon, his phone shows the correct time, my wifes does "most" of the time, otherwise hers shows a time 2 hrs earliier, mines constantly shows 2 hrs earlier, I did the *228, no help, shut it down, removed battery, etc, when it comes back up the time is correct but within seconds it goes back 2 hrs. When I get a text message it shows correct time then again reverts 2 hrs off. When I leave the campground the go to Greenville the time is correct, soon as I get to the campground it's 2 hrs off. Stopped at the Verizon store today, they did a software update, the sales/service person said they've never seen or heard of a phone doing that before as they get their time from the receiving tower. It showed the correct time when we left the store in Greenville................until I got to the campground it then went to 2 hrs earlier again. It's not a Droid or smart phone just a simple open type w/keypad LG phone and my wife's is a LG Chocolate. Anybody got any ideas on what I can do to get the correct time.

    Hey, give this a try.

    Set the time in the settings menu manually, then also in the settings menu go to network and enable auto-update. Ta-Da!

    Well can't find a time setting in the phone, on network it's in auto mode, I got to the campground tonight, it had the correct time for about 1 hr then went 2 hrs back, the wife's phone is still showing the correct time now for the last 2 days. I think I'll just look at the time and subtract 2 hrs till we leave here. LOL

    Yeah that's what the salesman at the Verizon store said, mine's not even 2 yrs old yet. My wife's phone has now gone to 2 hrs backwards, we just went into Washington, NC (about 3 miles from the campground) and they both still have the incorrect time, so must be the tower here for some reason. Talked to my son in law, he's a tech wizard, after doing all his do's and try this's, his FINAL answer was "I think you guys are in the twilight zone". Oh well no big deal, just never saw this happen before so thought I'd toss it out to see if there was a remedy. Thanks

    Maybe you should do what I've thought about doing more times than I care to admit. Go to the local trap & skeet range, give it to the guy in charge & yell PULL!

    Check to see if it is set for he correct country. The sales rep had mine set to central America instead of central standard time.

    Re: Wrong time on cell phone question

    It seems like you have tried just about everything. My BB phone I have set to automatically change time zones when we travel. I leave my husbands so I manually change zones. What I do is go to 1. settings and tools. 2.tools. 3. World Clock. 4. Make sure North America is selected then 5. click on the "cities" which on his phone is the the upper right button on the phone. 6. Choose the city that is closest to where you are then hit OK. That may pull you into the correct time zone. If it doesn't work you're no worse off than you were before. Hope it helps, Diana
