How I fixed mine...
I had the same weirdness.
It was fine upon buying it. I had my first "force close" from an app which was asking if I would allow Google to access location data. After a reboot, the time was off. It was set to GMT-5:00 Atlantic and would not change to my current location.
Having GPS on:
I tried the timezone to make sure it was correct. Automatic was now off and the zone showed as noted above. I, however, was in Eastern and not Atlantic -4:00 which made the difference apparently. After that, I changed it to Automatic.
The KEY TO IT WORKING was to then "remove" the widget from the screen and then add it back choosing the style and current location.
I played with it further trying to intentionally mess it up but found it would NOT mess up and stayed correct even as I played with the settings and closed/reopened it!!!!
Try it. Menu/Settings/Date & Time
- Select the zone yourself.
- Close and then reopen widget
Assuming this works, then...
- Back to Menu/settings/Date & Time
- Click Automatic and notice if what you set under the zone is still correct.
- Close and reopen the widget to see if it's still correct.
I turned the phone off/on to see if it would retain the info; it did.,
Regardless of the above steps, I feel like I got lucky with it somehow since it wouldn't change when I deliberately tried to mess it up.
The next trick is tomorrow to see if it automatically changes when I travel to a new city.
I hope this helps you.
