    Default Daylight Savings Time: Force-Change Time

    I have the LG Optimus V. I have searched here & elsewhere first before posting here.

    The phone mistakenly "sprung back" 1 hour thinking it was daylight savings time, when it reality it's not for another week. I am in the Houston time zone. I have hunted EVERYWHERE trying to see where I can "force-feed" it to the right time, or disable DST etc, I just can't find that option anywhere. I really don't want to hobble around with the wrong time for an entire week with no option to change it. How do I do so?

    Hello people.

    I'm having the same problem today, with the same phone and the same carrier.

    There is no options to change time zone or time itself on our phones, to my knowledge at least.

    My Optimus V on Virgin Mobile did the same thing this morning. It corrected itself at 11am CST (correction: noon CST, 11am LGST).

    Ditto on the OptimusV. Made getting the family ready for church a real treat with one hour less to work with.

    The interesting thing is- my weather and time widget had the correct time.

    As far as I know, on froyo you can't change the time, it's set by the carrier. However I did see a spot in the IHO settings to manually set the clock, (at least I thought I did) but I'm not running IHO so someone else will have to confirm this for me.

    You are correct... In CM7, you go to:
    Settings > Date & time
    uncheck Automatic, then you can set any date or time you want.

    It's a pitty that the stock ROM doesn't offer this feature considering Sprint doesn't care enough to make sure all their towers are set with the correct DST settings.

    I think that happens because they update from their own time server separate from the phone network. (But don't quote me on that one! lol)

    So this is interesting. MY Optimus V (Virgin) had the wrong time so I rebooted and it fixed it. Then I just checked my wife's Optimus S (Sprint) and it also had the wrong time so I rebooted it as well.

    I know Virgin uses the Sprint network but it seems strange both would have the wrong time. hmm. I hope it changes next weekend like it's supposed to.

    this whole situation was pretty hilarious, imo.

    there was a half hour window yesterday where i truly did not know what time it really was. i ended up having to call someone to find out.

    Or set something that didn't update and base it off that. Like when I'm traveling across the county I use my iPod to keep track of which time zone I'm in

    Rebooting does set the time correctly. That means you have to reboot the phone 4 times a year. twice when the during spring forward and twice when you fall back. Are we saying that LG does not have a firmware update that corrects the DST settings to the correct days in the US? (Thank you United States Government)

    Mine is correct. So it's possible just certain locations have this flaw, or it's possible that only a batch of OVs have the flaw (like those that have the new OV with the OS screen, our those running a VM PRL instead of a Sprint PRL

    @quackn8r neither LG or VM have a way to update our phones once they're out of the factory. The technology isn't there on VM's side and LG borked the update package thing. But it is 2011, and the change to daylight savings time happened in 2007, so this should be fixed.

    Joined this forum specifically for this issue.

    They have not fixed this issue. This is exactly 1 year later, 1 week before DST switchover. Here I am at work. My phone says 5:55 AM. Everyone is asking if I overslept. I have no idea what they're talking about. All clocks at work are saying 6:55 AM. I think it's them screwing with me.

    I watch the phone switch to 6am. 1 second later, I watched it jump 1 hour ahead to 7am, "fixing" itself.

    Thank you Virgin Mobile. I have an Optimus Slider android version 2.3.4.

    Anyone else have this happen again this year? I am in Austin, TX. Normally I would have started a new thread but I think ressurecting this one was more appropriate.

    I had the same issue and solution (CM7) unchecking automatic. Later, rebooted and it worked on automatic again.

    It's a big deal when you're an hour late because of it. DST changed in 2007, 5 years ago.

    First world problems, I know. Traditional alarm clark bought.

    I didn't need a reboot, I literally watched it correct itself automatically. Though I have the slider, so I don't know how much that matters.
