    Default Phone keeps switching my time forward.

    So I'm on sprint and my s5 will switch the time forward 2 hours every day at random times of the day. I have tried manually setting my time but then my text messages get weird time stamps and don't come in correctly . The only solution I have found is resetting the phone but that's annoying and time consuming.

    Does anyone have a fix for this? Have you even heard of this issue? Please help.

    Default

    Under Settings> Date and Time, do you have both "automatic date and time" and "automatic time zone" checked? If not, try checking them and see if that corrects the issue.

    If they are checked, try unchecking both, then set your date/time. It may be an issue with your carrier's time.

    just about has to be something going on with the carrier.

    Left to its' own devices, the phone has no reason at all to "jump time".

    Just make sure the settings are fixed.

    Personally, I would just turn off the carrier time slot, and make it manual for your own time of day.

    Yeah they are both checked. I will go ahead and try and keep it at manual. Thank you.

    I am having the same problem!! It is happening multiple times a day. Both automatic settings are checked. I will switch to manual. Very annoying. Sprint is my carrier.
