    Phone rebooted this morning, now it's stuck on January 1,1970 and won't change no matter what I do. Time is off too. Ideas?

    Try going to settings>time> use network provided values. If that doesn't work, a data wipe should fix it.

    Somehow my use network thingy got unchecked. I'm a dummy. :(
    Nothing like a needless panic to start the day.

    Glad you got it fixed. I have done way worse, so don't worry about it.

    I updated roaming twice, wiped and installed the latest nightly, and rebooted at least 6 times. Talk about a full blown freak out!
    I forgot rule #1...try the simple thing first.

    This happened to me tonight I had to do a battery pull after a freeze and I was in airplane mode so no network to update the time. That was freaky!
