Time is set by the cell towers.
Been that way since the Pleistocene.
That being said, I wonder if the clock is also set by NNTP over the WIFI? This capability was added to Honeycomb/ICS for tablets.
Your you turned off the check boxes for "USE Network provided Time" I could see you having some clock drift.
If the HOX is getting time from your router, and your is not synced with a time server, that could cause drift as well.
This has got me thinking. My HOX drops wifi every night at midnight (or within a few minutes thereof). I'm wondering about where it gets its time now. Maybe my router is horked.

i have left my wifi on and never experienced this my time has been correct not sure i understand how wifi being on over night has anything to do with the time if thats the case wouldn't the laptops or desktops be wrong i checked and mine are correct is this dependent on what router you use?

I had that issue. For the first week i owned the phone, every morning i would wake up and the clock on the One X would be 5-10 minutes behind the actual time. I always leave my wifi on. When I rebooted the phone, the time would correct itself until the next night and it would happen again. I even turned the date / time to Manual instead of Network provided time and the problem still persists.
I did a Master Reset and that fixed my issue. I have been going on over a week with zero issues with the time on my phone since the reset.
Hope this helps

I have the problem every night. When I get up, the phone is always 5 to 10 minutes behind the correct time. It is that way whether or not the settings are set to connect to use network time or not. A switch to airplane mode and back seems to reset the time when set to use the network time.
I haven't tried turning off wifi at night to see if the time stays correct, but will try today. This is the only real nagging problem I have with the phone.

You're right... The master reset only solved the problem for a week and now it's happening again... :-(
I have been turning off My wifi at night and so far haven't had the issue again...
Here's to an quick update by HTC to fix this problem.

I have experienced this issue twice since buying the phone. The first time the phone was 20 minutes slow when I woke up, and 2 minutes slow the second time. In both cases, toggling the phone into and out of airplane mode caused the phone time to reset to the correct time. In both cases the phone was being charged and both wifi and data were turned off. A quick search shows quite a few different Android phones have similar incorrect time reports. am considering taking the phone back for a replacement as it is an otherwise great device.

The thing is that the time is supposed to be set by network (as long as you have that setting turned on).
That does not need wifi. But you turned data off, and therefore it couldn't get to the time servers.
Why turn data off at night?
Its not like its going to use a ton of dsta just sitting there.
