    Depending on where you are in Arizona, you might be on an out of state tower. Or there's no exception for DST in either the phone or the tower software.

    But AZ doesnt participate in DST changes, towers in AZ shouldnt change time at all, just time zone.

    Nothing to do with the battery, it has to do with your cellular provider. But changing the time your self is as simple as going to settings & changing it
