Clock displaying wrong time

My clock is not properly showing the time. Does not matter if I select the correct time zone or change the time manually, it still corrects it to an hour earlier than it needs to be. Is anyone else having this problem since the newest upgrade?

The phone clock automatically picks up the at your location from the VZW network.  I'm not aware of a way to manually change the time.

I rely on my phone clock to keep me on time and definitely want your phone to be on time as well, J3NNY3721. Let's dig into this and make sure your time is displaying correctly. What's the zip code where you're located? When did this start? Have you powered off and on at all?

When you go into settings-date and time do you have automatic date and time on?

The last two days, my phone is also displaying the wrong time.

I have the correct setting, my location is on & yesterday my phone reset after I drove 10 miles?!

I rebooted my phone after I got to work But the same thing happened this am & the wrong time is still showing as an hour later.

This error cost made me late to my job!

Oh no! I'm so sorry you were late to work, CUTEGIRLTUSHY. Let's get this fixed.

Do you also have the Galaxy S7? Did you recently do an update? Please try going to Settings> Date And Time> uncheck Automatic date and time. Once that is done, you can set the correct date and time manually and see if the time stays correct.

I spoke with a Verizon tech & he started a work ticket.

I have the most recent update.

I had it set on automatic time.

2 days in a row, when I woke up, it was 1 hour behind. I live in Pacific time zone.

The tech advised me to use manual setting until fix could be resolved.

He saw other outstanding tickets that started after the update.

In Settings under date and time, you can select automatic date & time (sourced from Verizon) & as you change time zones so does your phone.

Manual, which the Verizon tech advised until an update can be submitted.
