    Here's something that seemed strange that I thought maybe someone could offer some ideas on: when I woke up today, the time on my iPhone was incorrect. I went to check the date and time (it was on "set automatically"), and it turns out the phone thought it was in Houston, TX. I don't live anywhere near there, and haven't been near there recently.

    I thought it was just a random error, but one of my coworkers mentioned today that her phone did the same thing (also thought it was in Houston).

    Anyone else have this happen or know what it could be? Just curious...thanks!

    That's strange...my iPhone has never done that to me, it's always kept the right time zone for me.

    Has it caused any other problems for you, or has it been resolved?

    This thread had the same issue today:

    Maybe it has something to do with the massive AT&T outage yesterday?

    Yes, and I lived in North Richland Hills for many years, so I know FW is better (at least far less people) for some reasons.

    At least for a while your iPhone couldn't be messed with.
