My Cell Phone Time is off

My cell phone is off by 33-1/2 minutes ... it's slow ... at about 1:38(computer ... all my computers and clocks), my cell phone is saying 1:05.

Time for the Eastern time is about 75 degrees, and I'm at almost 83 degrees, which is, coincidently about 32 minutes ... within about 1-1/2 minutes of the time my cell phone is giving.

Has anyone else ever had this problem before?

Check to be sure your phone clock has "auto date & time" checked.

Re: My Cell Phone Time is off

wow! I wonder how that got turned off ...?

Evidently, my surveying background and knowing about time and longitude, made me look at that as a possibility ... especially since the time difference pretty much bore that out ...

But, alas, it might've been nothing more than like working on a Ford, when EVERYTHING, somehow, becomes coincidental to the problem and the "real" problem presents itself, only AFTER fixing all the other coinicidental things(often with un-needed new parts)


thanks
