    Ever since I got my iPhone, the displayed time is about 5 minutes behind the actual time. At first I thought it was just a temporary ATT network glitch and it would adjust to the correct time at some point, but it's sill behind this morning.

    Is anybody else having this issue?

    I'm not. My MBP and iPhone show the same time.

    My iPhone 4 is always about 1-2 minutes behind. Pretty annoying.

    Not to thread hijack but how do I display the date in the top screen bar. It only shows the time right now. Thx.

    You can Jailbreak, and then show all sorts of stuff up there

    Make sure you have Date & Time in Settings set to "Set Automatically." Otherwise it won't pick up time from the carrier. I've had no problem with the timekeeping.

    My iPhone 4's clock is a 30 seconds behind time.gov, the clock on my MacBook Pro and my iPhone 2g.

    I have it so that it sets the time automatically, but tried to set it manually then enabled set automatically again and it kept the manually inputted time.

    Annoying and frustrating!

    iPhone, MBP, DVR all show the same time (to the minute, at least)...

    I have my iPhone 4 set to "Automatic" but it's five minutes fast, compared to my atomic clocks, my computers, and my wife's iPhone 3G. Strange.

    Where are you getting your "Actual Time" from?

    I have two clocks and a watch that set themselves via signals from the atomic clock in Colorado every midnight. These clocks are all within a second of each other and my wife's 3G is within a few seconds of them. My iP4 is five minutes ahead.

    A-ha! Restarting the phone fixed it. It is within a second or two of my other clocks now.
