    Late July 2013 this began happenning to both my and my wife's ATT iPhone 5.  Phone was purchased in Sept 2012, and we've both had every model iPhone since the original.  We live in a remote community with its own ATT tower.  Problem only occurs at home and with time set to automatic. Every day or so for about a week phone would reset to GMT while at home.  I believe this problem is a carrier problem, not a phone problem.

    To all,


    Actually you can change it yourself.


    Go to Settings -> International -> Calender -> then choose "Gregorian"


    Hope this help you guys.

    I'm in Doha-Qatar, also facing the same problem with my iphone 5, even after formating version 7.0.4. If it is a software problem, why can't they find a solution?, now almost one year. Let someone help us...

    And I'm in Oslo Norway with a 5S, same problem. Time changes several times every day.

    My parents have 4S and 5, and they are using the same carrier and Internet provider whitout any problems.


    Can we have a reply from Apple ASAP, or are you guys to busy to look in to your customers problems!

    I am also having the same problems. If you turn on airplane mode for a minute and then switch it back off, everything will work again. But it doesn't mean it's resolved forever cause mine keeps doing it every time it's charging.

    Same problem with 5C ATT.


    Time drifts off by hours, when I go to airplane mode and then back out it resets to correct time.  Also if I turn off sync auto and then turn back on it resets to proper time.  However it never stays on proper time, and it's not off by an even number of hours (like wrong time zone) but a completely random amount.


    Also, and I don't think this has been mentioned above, my timer doesn't work.  It counts down but then randomly goes to a new number. 


    We have 1 other 5C and 2 5's at the same house, same carrier, but only 1 phone is affected.


    Any ideas?  I've tried various reboots and tweaks mentioned here but so far nothing has worked.


    Also if I set time manually it doesn't advance at all.  Just stays on the time I set.

    Had the exact same problem as you pgauthi. Except I have Verizon. If it's under warranty, just take it in to the apple store and don't leave until they give you a new phone. The first time I went in they tried to tell me it was an issue of moving between time zones and cell towers and that it was a network problem. For some of the people on this discussion, that is probably the case. However when the time is off by a random amount of time, then once in a while it decides to update, that is not a problem with the network. I went in a second time and told them I just wanted to have the phone replaced. It was under warranty, and wasn't working as it was supposed to, so I wanted a new phone. They finally gave me a replacement and low and behold, the new phone works. So, it's not a problem with the network, at least in my case, and it sounds like it's the same for you. The time is pulled from the network's cell towers, but that doesn't automatically mean it's a network problem. I would guess in our case, it's most likely that something is wrong with the phone that is preventing it from sending requests to the network to fetch the time.


    If you're under warranty, go in to the apple store and don't leave without a new phone. If you're not under warranty, cry.

    Thanks, how long is the warranty?


    It's really weird that the timer doesn't work, that suggests to me that as you said something's wrong with the phone.

  • miltonian1 Level 1 (0 points)

    thank you. Have changed back to Halifax as time zone because on auto the little wheel just goes round. I live on an island in the Caribbean so am on Digicell network. Think it must be a phone glitch. This works. Appreciate you help. It was driving me nuts.

    Wonder if this is also why although my phone shows correct time occasionally I get texts that are three hours later even when I know their clock is set correctly. Weird where it shows up.
