I'm off an hour and 6 minutes right now. This is strange. It's been fine everyday that I've had it until today. What can I check other than date & time settings?

Mine has been fine. But there is a thread here with others reporting the same problem, so you are not alone.

I searched for one but didn't find it. Thanks for letting me know, I'll look again.

I powered my phone off then turned it on. It came up wrong initially then switched to the correct time. So far so good, but I'll be keeping an eye on it and hopefully see what the other thread has to say.

So it' keeps happening. It happens to my wife's as well. Today I discovered that not only does the time change, but the date changes, too. Moments ago, my phone was transported back to Oct 4th at 1:04pm. When the time is wrong, I've noticed I can't tweet or send iMessages. Apparently both require the correct date and time.

Anybody experience this or have a fix? Or if you could point me to another thread on it, I'd appreciate it. My searches have come up empty.

Mine did the same thing yesterday for the first time since I've had it (9-28). I looked at other threads, it seemed to be just a Verizon heavy issue. I have Verizon, but a reboot fixed mine. Then it did it again (was on WIFI both times at home), so I set my time manually and it has not messed up yet. Really want to get back to the auto setting, so I'm looking for any solutions.

This may be an issue with your backup if you restored from a 4 or 4S backup on your iPhone 5. Try a restore as new. If the problem persists, then manually set your time and date.

My 4 never had a time/date issue, so curious, why do you think it's related?

It's baaaaaaack. No idea what changed, but the phone will somehow lose 20 minutes. So annoying. I'll be calling VZ tomorrow to report it. Anybody else had the issue return?
