I've been through my third time change since I've had this stupid droid and it can't manage the time function when the daylight savings flips. I mean, how hard can it be?

Bah. I'm going back to my Casio Gzone flip phone and Wave-ceptor watch.

Yah...and since smart phones dont come with any handy and informative user manuals , you have no choice but to find some young kid that looks like bart simpson and ask for help.

Well, since I'm fresh out of yoots, I'm s*** out of luck then. That ain't right.

My Droid handled it just fine. Sounds like operator error. ;)

Hey, I didn't tell the thing to wait until mid morning the day after it was s'posed to change and then advance (or roll back) two hours. WTF? It's done this 3 times without any help from me.

What about using mobile network provider time sync?

It's doing automatic date and time, off key and in two hour intervals instead of one. Hell, my stupid phone managed the trick for five years without any assistance. What's so damn schmart about this stinking thing if I have to tell it what to do?

Spite and intelligence are kinda correlated.

Never had to touch a thing on my iPhone - it just works. I will admit I didn't check it until 7AM Sunday - but it had the right time.

Maybe Google is telling you something?

If it weren't for the 10 months left on my contract, and my dogged determination to learn the ins and outs of this stupid thing, a 30,000 lb bearing press and this phone would be intimately related.

(I did Pauls suggestion and it's still an hour ahead. :mad:)

That's how it should be, right?

Like what? Move to Oklahoma so my phone will tell the right time?

Yep

Maybe. Or - as Paul said - check to see if it's set for Eastern Time Zone?

Maybe it's objecting to not being able to say "Climate Change"?

Wait, it's not timezone dependant. Every time I've changed timezones my phone adapted instantly.

It knows where I am most of the year . . .and Verizon knows where they're sending the bills. The one thing I can count on.

And climate change (ouch) local NPR affiliates are all over that story today. It seems that directive to not say the evil words comes directly from the gov's office now. Go figure.

My Nokia 1020 (Microsoft) phone is behaving just fine. Sorry you people have such problems.

Buk buk, are you saying I should get some chickens? Not a bad idea, actually.

My dog's been keeping me in line time wise the last couple days. He knows when it's tike for a walk.

AT&T seems to know where I am too...

The WBF was all over the story yesterday (http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthread.php?189209-Denialists-Deny-Ordering-Denial) - though I heard the NPR piece today.

You might have an extra 'automatically set/detect timezone' unchecked, this would explain being off by an hour.

It recognises you as BOT's alter-ego.
