Network provided time/timezone wrong sometimes.


Recommended Posts

So this is a peculiar issue that I have been experiencing on my N5. It has only caused an issue so far when I got up and hour early for work a couple weeks ago. My phone switches ahead one hour. This has happened probably between 10 and 15 times. Right now I turned off the Network provided time until I can figure it out. Has anyone had this problem before or know why this could be happening?

My Galaxy s4 does it too. I just keep it off, it causes too many issues in my opinion. It caused me to be late to work a few times.

This has happened to me before, I was an hour early to work because I use my phone as an alarm clock! I didn't really investigate it too much, but It seemed like a particular Sprint site had the wrong time zone offset, whenever I passed by that site on my travels my phone would jump forward an hour. But then it would not set itself back... I have done the same thing you did to fix it and turned off network time.

This is a cell site issue. Call Sprint Care and have them pinpoint your location. I've had to do this several times in the past as specific towers are upgraded.

I just keep my phones off network time and let my device keep time. Because all kinds of anomalies occur, especially when roaming. And since I use my phone as an alarm clock, I can't afford for it to be off.

On my Evo, I noticed every time I connected to the tower near the main campus at work and whenever I roamed inside one of the elementary schools, it would show an hour behind. I had to just turn off network controlled time. Since I upgraded, I haven't noticed the issue. It could be that the towers get set wrong while upgraded and later on it is caught and corrected at the site or by an update. I have noticed at times it seem a quirky wifi connection will also throw off the time until I disconnect from it.

    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
