Why is my galaxy S3 network time wrong?

A

AC Question

My galaxy S3 was recently factory reset and now my network time is an hour and a half ahead. My clock widget is right however all of my apps say that it's an hour and a half later. I have tried to manually set the time and nothing changes. I reset my phone again and set the time before i downloaded the apps but it still did not fix it. I am running android 4.4.2. Does anyone know any possible solutions?

Welcome to Android Central! Is it 1.5 hrs ahead even when you have it set to Automatic Network Time and Automatic Time Zone? Do you live near the border of a state or country, or near the boundary of a time zone? I'm wondering if the phone might be picking up a cell tower from a different time zone.

Also, do you use a VPN at all?
