So, I activated my vzw iPhone5 Saturday. Very much enjoying it.  Woke up yesterday and was very confused because my phone thought it was 8/26/12 and 30 minutes later than the actual time.  I reset network settings and it self resolved...until this morning.  I woke up and looked at my phone and had a melt down because my alarm never went off.  I hurriedly got ready and looked at the microwave as I ran out, and it was 30 minutes earlier than my iPhone said. 

My iPhone apparently is doing something weird and reverting to 8/26/12 + 30 minutes while I (and it) sleep.  It throws off iMessage and I'm sure the rest of the date/time dependent apps, so I've turned off the automatic time setting for now, and its fine now (so far lol).  But I would like to know what the real issue is if possible!?! Is it my phone? VZW? Does it matter?

 

Thanks in advance :0)

iPhone 5, iOS 6

    I'm having almost the same issue. I'm also on Verizon. My date and time is off by an entire day earlier. No idea what to try. Already attempted to turn off location services for time zone and that didn't help.

    Having identical problems with both our new iPhone 5s, also on Verizon.

    Has to be a Verizon issue.

    Was your phone plugged in when it lost time? Mine was.

    I am having the same issue as well. Imessage is sporadic and I keep losing my time. I have noticed the only time that I am losing the date and time is when I am in 3G, which unfortunately is where I live. I am in Southern California in the suburbs of LA and I was amazed that I do not have 4G at my house. Hopefully a fix will come out soon....... If not I might as well stick with my 4S.

    My iPhone 5 which is on Verizon and also keeps losing time. Haven't noticed if it is affecting iMessage.

    I first noticed because iMessage was telling me it failed because of my date and time settings. It seems to only be happening to me when at my home. All day yesterday it was fine. If I leave on auto set date and time and toggle airplane mode it corrects itself for a little bit and then goes back to wrong time.

     

    It seems to be something with iOS 6 and Verizon but Verizon told me nothing they were aware of. Can everyone post up their phone, OS and carrier. To see if we are all on the same devices?

     

    iPhone 5, iOS 6, Verizon for me. Central Florida btw

    Black iPhone 5, 16gb, Verizon, Honolulu

    And

    White iPhone 5, 16gb, Verizon, Honolulu

     

    Mine isn't just off by 30 min. Today the black one was off by 15 days plus 6 hours and 12 minutes when I pulled it off the charger. The white one is my wife's and she complained yesterday evening that she had to fix the time 4 times throughout the day. This isn't going to work out if this cant be fixed soon
