    Has this happened to anyone else? Starting today, I've noticed my main clock is running fast. Like 5 mins fast. If I reboot my phone the time syncs back up to the correct time, but slowly it will start to count mins faster and the next thing I know, my phone says it is 5 or so minutes later than it actually is. I have a cell signal, but it still just doesn't keep the time right.

    Having the same problem on my Incredible, mine is 9 minutes ahead right now. I am thinking it might be a verizon thing, at first I thought maybe htc pulls that data from their servers but my girlfriends inpsire on ATT is normal


    EDIT: Just saw you had an incredible also. Hmm... Hope somebody has some insight

    I just noticed that I am having the same problem (clock running about 10 min fast). I just noticed it yesterday (5/26/11), but I wear a watch and don't use the phone all the time for a clock. Any help or suggestions would be great.

    Same issue here. 11 minutes fast. Droid Incredible. Girlfriend has an incredible too, but hers is right on time.

    Rebooting gets it back on track, but then like TheGlatMachine said, it becomes incorrect again (in the matter of an hour or so).

    Are you guys rooted if so download clocksync from the market it resets your phones time to the "atomic" time.

    Hey havent found a real "fix" but the easiest thing to do is hold your power button like you are turning it off, and turn airplane mode on then do it again to turn airplane mode off. I did mine last night around midnight and its still got the right time at 8:13 AM so we will see =)

    My fiance just told me her clock was ahead by 15 minutes. Has this ever happened before this instance? Or is this just a fluke?

    Yep, happened to me today and yesterday, 10 minutes ahead each time. I'm rooted and on the ginger bread leak with the latest radio.

    I tried Joshamo's suggestion of turning the airplane mod on & then off. I did that around noon, and it has been correct so far (about 4 hours now). Not sure why or how, but it worked. Hopefully this fixes it.

    My phone also is not rooted, and has never been. I'm on version 2.2 with Verizon. I noticed at one time today (around 1:50PM EST) I was about 15 mins fast when I pulled the phone from my pocket and hit the top button to take it out of sleep mode (or whatever it is called when the screen is off), but once I unlocked it, it resynced to the correct time. Otherwise the time has been correct.
