Daylight Savings time

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing their phones jumping between daylight savings time and standard time since Sunday because my iPhone has been switching at least a couple times a day mostly when I'm using Sprints data 3G and now LTE. Is this a network problem or something with my phone? I don't really mind but it's kinda annoying to keep switching it to the correct time. Also I don't want to restore because iOS 7.1 just came out and I would lose my jailbreak.

My phone changed time zones and my friends did too, so I turned off auto date and time and manually set them both to Cupertino. (I'm on pacific time)

The time issues seem to be network related, the n5 thread has a bunch of posts of people having similar issues.

Are your friends also on Sprint because I asked a couple of other friends with iPhones and theirs were the right time but they have AT&T so that's why I assumed it was a network problem. Also my Dad's S3 was messed up too but I believe it fixed itself.

My friends are both on Sprint.

 

Wow a lot of issues with everyone with jail broke iPhones today. That's odd....

One of the 3 iPhones I manage is not jailbroke yet, and still suffered from the time change issue.

I too have had an issue with my iPhone5 not holding the correct time.  It will jump to EDT (on CDT).  I did the same as Josh and turn off the automatic setting.  My phone did update when the time change happened Sunday morning.

I posted on this in the N5 thread, but I'm not so sure this is 'daylight savings' related.   I've noticed this issue off and on in LTE live areas over the past year, and while most of the time when its happened it falls back an hour, I've also seen a few times where I've warped forward an hour even as well.

 

What seems (so far, knocking on wood as I type this) to have fixed the issue for me for now is to manually set the time zone only by going into Settings--->Date & Time and unchecking Automatic time zone and manually setting it to whatever is appropriate.  I still have auto date/time checked.

At first it would only switch back when I was on 3G and then would correct itself on LTE but then LTE started the same so I just manually set the time.

My Iphone switched to the wrong time overnight.  I woke up this morning and looked at the clock and tried to figure out what was going on as the clock was one hour behind.  It confused me for a while until I realized that the timezone had changed automatically.  I manually set the timezone and all is fine now.  If I change it back to "Set Automatically", it changes within 5 minutes to the time before the "Spring Forward" and shows GMT+6 rather than Chicago time.  Either Sprint's NV infrastructure is experiencing a Daylight Saving Time bug or Apple's IOS has a bug.

Thank you, I will do that. Problems did start occurring after the time change took place. I watched it flip over at 2:03, then back, reset phone, repeat ad nauseaum. Thanks again for the advice. 

 

 

No problem, although you kind of threw me for a loop at first with your post, you quoted me but then wiped out my quote and put in your reply such that it appears like I'm the one that said that.  :dazed:

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
