Samsung Galaxy S2 phone time keeps changing on its on???

Are any of you having a problem with your phone changing the time for no apparent reason? It will change time time by 3 to 4 hours ahead.

Mine keeps doing this for the past 2 weeks. This morning it did it twice.

look at your location as well. when the time changes does it show you in a different area? normally this would be network related since its pulling this info from the towers. for the time being until it is fixed (if the tower is the issue) go into your settings and uncheck your automatic time...recheck it so it resets itself...make sure its correct..then go back in and uncheck it again so it stays that way..from time to time make sure the time is still correct.

I thought of that the first couple of time to check what area it was in and it is always in my area... Normally I would not worry about this, but since my phone is my alarm clock... well you know the story.

I will go into my setting and see what happens.

Thanks

Good morning,

Great conversation going on. I just wanted to check in with your to see if the suggestions from Fireguy helped any? Are you still having concerns with the time zone on your device? If this is still a concern, please post your cross streets and zip code. I will take a closer look at your area and we'll go from there.

Take care,

Hi Heather,

No it did not work. I took it in to Sprint and they did a software update. That fixed the problem.
