Clock running slow, not syncing with network time
My BlackBerry is currently set to Network Time, although every few weeks I notice that the handheld is running 2 or 3 minutes behind network time, usually just after I missed a bus.

Even though it's set to Network Time, it doesn't seem to be syncing. In my synchronization settings in Desktop Manager, I have the update date/time box unchecked.

I called AT&T about this, and they told me to install the Calendar Patch 2007, but then couldn't give me instructions to download it OTA, and told me they would just ship me a new unit. I told them to hold off on shipping a replacement, and I'd just download the calendar patch via USB when I got home from work. I've been looking at the calendar patch info, and I don't see anything about fixing any time issues in the release notes. Was that suggestion totally bogus? Does anyone have a fix for this? I have an 8310 running

it was totally bogus, a good excuse to end the phone call successfully.

Try changing your time source to BlackBerry, and see if it holds any better. It has for me.

Just in case you don't know:

Menu->Options->Data/Time->Date/Time Source:Blackberry

Thanks. I thought their suggestion sounded fishy. I set it to BB time; hopefully that will do better. Thanks!

or just run Update Time; i experienced a jump in BlackBerry time over the network time late last week and after doing an update, they both synced; just press the menu button when you're already in the Date/Time screen

I am having the same problem, on my Bold 9000 running My clock will run about 5 minutes slow per day. I have tried "network," ,"blackberry" and "off" source options to no avail. Even if I "update device date and time" during desktop manager syncs, it doesn't help much unless I sync more than once per day.

On a separate note, but perhaps related to the OS build, I leak about 7mb of memory per day. That is, whenever I pull the battery and reboot, I gain about 7mb of application memory.

2, 3 amd 5 mins isn't bad...

how about 1 whole hour?
yup.... my BB seems to fall off the time/space continuum for 1 hour and hit happens every few weeks.

I have to update it to the network when I realise i'm an hour behind everyone else.

Does anyone have a fix for this?
its really irritating!

Good thing I always set two alarms. lol

Mine's off exactly 30 minutes slow, checked and it's all set properly to network time. The funny thing is that on the date/time settings screen it show's what the network time is and it's correct, then up above it show's what the phone is displaying and it's the wrong time. Wierd! It is on the right time zone, I'm off exactly 30 minutes!

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:55 AM.
