Reset your time manually:

menu > Option > Date/Time > after you have selected your timezone and etc, change your "date/time source" to blackberry.

see if this helps.

thanx, but anyone know why it was like that, new phones usually have the correct time automatically.

I had the same problem with the date of March 1st. I had an old BB prior to the Pearl. I connected the new Pearl to my desktop, opened desktop manager, disabled set date and time and did a manual synch. Messages popped up about the new BB being set to wireless, etc. I click through everything and now everything is working fine.
