    My wifes iPad 2 16gig wifi only is displaying time incorrectly. It is exactly 1 hour off. When I go into settings the time is set to "Automatic" and the time zone is set to "Chicago". I can manually set it to Eastern time zone but when I set it to Auto it switches back to Chicago time.

    How can I let the iPad 2 know that it is in CT, not IL?

    My iPad has a similar problem. It's always exactly 2 minutes ahead. I can set it manually, but it advances by 2 minutes when Auto is selected.

    In settings/location sevices/system services/setting time zone, are you 'on'? If that's not the problem, then I'd guess it's an ISP issue.

    The automatic time setting only functions on the 3G version.

    It works fine on my wifi, just like it works on my laptop via wifi.

    Me, too. The clock on my MBP, iPhone, and iPad 2 work fine on wifi.

    It has nothing to do with the ISP. It also happens with WiFi off. I can set any
    time manually, and as soon as I switch to Auto the displayed time instantly adds 2 minutes. I would say that the internal clock is correct, but there's a glitch between the clock and displayed time. It could be a small error in my iOS code or firmware. I'm still on 4.3.5. Maybe it's telling me to update to iOS 5.0.1. with its new firmware.

    Your problem is, likely, unrelated to the OP's, which is what I was addressing. The OP's keeps swithcing to Chicago, and if his location services are off that will never get updated to his current location.

    Well, I certainly found a clock problem!

    I have a daily reminder set on both the iPone and the iPad. I also have an "atomic clock", one of those clocks that syncs multiple times a day with the Colorado Atomic Clock, so I can check for accuracy. (only a tiny bit nuts, no?)

    The reminder alerts go off on both devices, but NOT SIMULTANEOUSLY!!!

    The iPhone alert sounds exactly on time, but the iPad is ONE SECOND SLOW.:eek:

    My gosh and golly, can't Apple ever get anything right?

    So distressed...:(

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;)

    As others have said, that works now. Apple brought that feature to the wifi iPad in iOS 5.

    The solution: drink heavily.

    Perhaps the plutonium in your atomic clock needs re-processing? :D

    If that's a solution for a seriously twisted psyche, I'm for it.:p

    Ah, that explains the glow-in-the-dark nads!:eek:
