Welcome to Android Central! You can always set your time zone manually, but the carrier will still be using its own clock and calendar when it comes to keeping track of your calls and data.

If you're doing it to force an Android update in less than 24 hours, it works - just advance the day by 1.

If you want to set your account to the next billing period, to use next month's data, it won't work.
