    Default Clock Issues

    Has anyone been experiencing issues with the alarm clock not going off when it's suppose to, as well as the phone not keeping the accurate time? I set an alarm last night for 0600, it didn't go off. When I eventually woke up at 0730, the the time on the phone said 0615. After toggling the WiFi off and on, the clock jumped to the accurate time. Is there anyway to resolve this that anyone know of?

    Thanks in advance.

    not sure how to fix it the correct way but the kludge fix is to change the time settings from automatic to manual.

    This is getting frustrating. I turned the setting off the automatic, but it still happens. Not as frequently, but it shouldn't happen at all! Guess this is a phone call, or email to samsung/Verizon issue.

    The thing is, it seems like the cell device isn't updating the time on a regular interval.
    I am not sure if it is a ROM issue, or a device issue.

    So the people at Verizon had me put Cleo (my Note 3) in Safe Mode to see if it was an operating system glitch. The ultimate conclusion, from Verizon's perspective , is that it's a third party app that's causing the glitch. If this is true, how do we find the app that's causing the glitch? Assuming that's what's causing the clock to mess up.

    Reboot. Battery pull. Hopefully you've tried these already. May not be it, but I am amazed at how often this actually works for many glitches.

    It does sound like your phone is not connecting/updating the network time correctly. You may test unchecking that option and seeing if your phone tracks time correctly. It really should keep accurate account regardless.

    I did a factory reset, out of pure frustration. Seems to be working consistently, however , my confidence has been rocked. Not entirely sure I'll sleep comfortably knowing that my alarm may not go off. Time and consistency will remedy this.

    I've been having the same issue for approximately 6 weeks and haven't figured out how to solve it. It ONLY happens with a wifi connection.

    Here's what I can tell:

    Every morning just before 5am if I have a WIFI connection, the phone starts to heat up, the system time/clock appears to stop. Alarm programs don't trigger regardless of which one I use.

    Using CPU/process monitoring programs, I can see that Google+ is running and using approximately 25-30% CPU. It isn't generating any network traffic, and I'm not using any options to backup/upload photos, etc from G+. If the phone isn't plugged in, the battery starts to drain very quickly at this point.

    I tried to remove all G+ updates and that made no difference.

    My work-around has been to turn off wifi when I go to bed and everything works fine.

    Any ideas to try short of doing a factory reset?

    I don't have my Galaxy Note 3 yet, but I've been running Alarm Clock Xtreme on the LG Intuition. It has worked well for me. I had to try a 3rd-party app because I had a another app that was conflicting with the factory-installed alarm. Maybe you are having a similar problem? At any rate, I really like the app.

    Alarm clock xtreme is one of the ones I use too and it doesn't trigger in this problem scenario.

    I just laid here from 0530 to 0600 and watch the phone not keep the accurate time, nor did any of the alarms go off. I used X treme click, I toggled the automatic time zone and time back and forth, turned off the wifi, and finally restarted the phone. I know this sounds crazy, but it's happening in the early morning hours.

    I've been using Timely (3rd party app) for months now and have developed full-trust in it. It's a wonderful app - easy to use and set and very flexible. I use it 4-days a week at home and daily when traveling. It hasn't let me down once.

    This is the same issue I'm having. I don't think it matters what alarm program is used. Something is making the system time stop and every alarm app would rely on that time. Turning wifi off before going to bed seems to prevent the problem from occurring for me. Beyond that I haven't found a solution.

    I've had the same problem for a couple of months. I have to call the front desk for a wake up call now as I can't use my phone any longer when I travel. Which alarm program doesn't seem to matter. Also, whether WiFi is on or off doesn't matter either. I have a Galaxy Note 8 and Note 10.1 that have the same programs as my phone and they don't have this issue, their alarms work fine.

    Has anyone come up with a solution for this? Ever since I upgraded my Sprint Note 3 to Kitkat, my alarm won't go off in the morning. Even more odd, the alarm would eventually go off several minutes later, when the clock would say a completely different time. I've tried a complete reset and a cache partition wipe. Nothing worked. This is crazy!
