    Default Time wrong in notification bar [SOLVED]

    Actual time is eleven thirty four but the notification bar showed ten fifty nine. The world clock app show the correct time and the weather app show the correct time. Anyone else see this kind of behavior from the note 2?

    It's off again. It's off 3 minutes as of now. It shows correctly when I look at the clock but not when I look at the notification bar

    I hate when I can't trust my phone to do something as basic is show me the correct time. I rebooted the phone and for the moment the time is correct but it's only been going for a few minutes

    who is your carrier? As far as I know the system time is sync'ed from the cell provider.

    Verizon and my wife's note time was correct. Plus the clock app time was correct

    Not trying to insult your intelligence since you have obviously have a lot of posts. But do your Date & Time settings look something like below (other than being Verizon)? If not, make sure you have Automatic set. If that doesn't work, reboot if you haven't already. If THAT doesn't work, there are other issues at play that are beyond my understanding.

    Yes it's set correctly and had worked correctly since launch day. No offense taken

    Have you installed any new apps lately? I had the same problem after the smooth calendar app updated a few weeks ago. I uninstalled the app and all was good again.

    Problem back today. Verizon is sending a sim card. We'll see if that fixes it but I'm not confident. For grins I cleared cache

    If the sum doesn't fix it, maybe a reset is in order.

    Looks like I found the problem. I will post more on it later, as soon as I am certain, but I'll let the cat out of the bag a little bit: I followed the advice on a thread regarding how to stop "wifi" from showing in notifications...

    OK--here is the solution. By following someone's tip of force stopping the wifi notifcation (long press on wifi, hit app info, force stop), I had unwittingly screwed up the phone's ability to display the correct time if the screen remains on. The only way I could get the time to update IN THE STATUS BAR, was to either blank the screen, or go into settings>Date & time>uncheck & check Automatic date and time. Moral of the story? Don't always do what others suggest for solving some little problem. Sometimes you just create larger, TIME WASTING ones.

    The reason I said yesterday that I had no time issues with my phone for much of the day yesterday, was that I had rebooted the phone in the morning after seeing the issue, and I DIDN'T force stop the wifi notification app.
