    Unlocked Treo 680 on Vodafone in UK.

    Day two: woke up late because Treo 680 lost 1.5 hours during the night and alarm did not go off

    Day three: on a 30 minute call- 680 lost 8 minutes during the call

    Day five: 680 has lost 5 minutes since 6pm

    Has been OK at other times but for no apparent reason the clock either stops or slows dow- not possible surely?

    Any ideas? This is strange!

    Mine did a similar thing - until I went into general preferences and checked off "network time". Now, the Treo keeps perfect time!

    Same here, happened only twice, but lost several hours every time.

    unbranded treo and network time option was never turned on.

    Well, I'm not losing that much time, but I use World Mate to occasionally manually sync up my clock with official atomic time. (All computers, after all, are lousy at keeping precise time on their own.) My 650 would generally be off by two or three seconds every week or so. No big deal. My 680, on the other hand, is off by a minute or more every day. I don't want to use the automatic Network time, because that was causing my Treo to turn itself on every five minutes.

    Considering that I don't wear a watch, and I do use my Treo as an alarm clock, this is worrisome.

    It seems like the 680 stinks at keeping time. I set it yesterday and this morning it's already off by four minutes.

    i'm using time copy from http://vons.free.fr/palm to see if it helps out.

    it syncs the time to your desktop clock wheny you sync via a conduit.

    Ditto. I just wish Worldmate had an auto-time sync option.

    Mine's only a few days old, but I've noticed clock weirdness too. I assumed it was related to this thread about rebooting. But now I'm not so sure.

    I'll keep close eye on the clock for a while. Oh I wish I hadn't dropped my trusty 650.

    Edit: By the way, when I turn network time on, it gets the wrong time, so that's not an option for me. Anyone else seen this?

    If my Treo freeses at all during the day, if I reboot it, Sometimes I don't do anything. At the end of the day My treo is off by 5 min or more as well. I think I wikk try net clock.
    Thanks for the tip

    Check for a bad application that's crashing (Go to phone app, dial #*377, and press the dial button.) The phone doesn't seem to update the time in nonvolatile memory very often, so a crash may cause it to lose some time.

    PS My 680 keeps perfect time.

    Funny, I never had that problem w/ my 650 here or now my 680, but I was just in Bogota Columbia last week and connected to a local provider there, and I noticed my 650 was not keeping the right time. weird...

    I thought maybe the time loss was related to the amount of time my 680 was "stuck" before I did the soft reset. Not so sure now. Worldmate atomic sync will help, but I do use my Treo as a travel alarm. Not good!

    Keep the thoughts coming!

    BellSouth became Cingular, left for ATT, who became Cingular, who became ATT. Is that right?

    Here's a summary of some of the time-sync solutions that I'm aware of:

    Sync Time at every Hotsync:
    • TimeCopy (freeware)
    • ... various other commercial solutions not worth looking at since TimeCopy is excellent, solid and freeware ...


    Sync Time to an Atomic Clock over the Network:

    I've noticed time losses on my 680 since I first received it a couple of weeks ago.

    I did post a note on this forum but there didn't seem to be any replies at the time.

    Well now I know I'm not alone in seeing this issue.

    Guess I'll set up one of the time-sync packages, but I'd much rather see a solution to the root problem.

    I'm also experiencing time losses on the 680. It's only been off by a 30 minutes. But I'm finding it's not a big deal any more because I used to use Palmarysoft's PalmaryClock on my T3 and I upgraded to PalmaryClock Wireless Edition for the Treo that has built in Atomic Time sync. So I have it set up to update every morning at 8:05 AM and all is right with the world now.
