    The time on my pre drifts forward over time, I'd estimate at least 45 seconds per day. Every few days I notice that it is 3-4 minutes fast, and a reboot put it back to the correct time.

    I don't know if this started with 1.3.1 or with a refurb phone I got about the same time (for a mic issue). I'm a launch day customer and have never had this problem until now.

    Ideas?

    (no patches, apps, or any modifications at all)

    I had this problem since I got my first phone on June 6. Continued through all updates, so I got a replacement from Sprint. I think its a rare hardware issue, as it doesn't seem very widespread. Go get a new one from Sprint.

    I just noticed mine was doing it today. I had replaced my phone several weeks ago after my dog ate my old one. I'm going to call sprint an see if they get a lot of reports of it.

    I noticed the same problem several weeks ago on my 2 month old Pre from Amazon. Here's what I do to sync the time. Turn ON Airplane mode, wait about a minute, and then turn OFF airplane mode. The time will then match the www . time . gov official US time website.

    Has anyone actually talked to Palm or Sprint about this?

    I realize that it will "fix" by turning off/on the radio or by rebooting. But heck, it don't want to do that - absolutely crazy for a phone like this to not be able to keep correct time.

    Studies have shown that dog food is (for the most part) healthier for a shiny coat than Palm Pres. Just because it's supposed to be a smartphone, doesn't necessarily mean that your dog will get any smarter by eating them.

    Maybe the forward time drift is a feature to make sure you're never late.

    Yes but unfortunately the small intestine counts as roaming.

    I actually spoke with Palm and Sprint support on multiple occasions about this. Palm blamed it on bad time info coming from Sprint's towers (ludicrous, because Sprint phones within 5 feet of my Pre had the correct time). Sprint blamed it on an unknown issue (probably hardware) and promptly replaced the phone. I've had no issues since.

    btw, I had the same problem WITH and WITHOUT network time enabled and with and without patches. I had the issue even before homebrew became a normal thing and started patching.

    Funny, mine seems to have stopped this behavior, time has stayed relatively constant (well except for advancing forward once a minute ;-) ) for about the last two weeks.

    FWIW, my time has always run fast since day one, so I took mine into a Sprint Corporate store, where they tested it and said there is something wrong with it (really?) and that the battery was bad. There giving me a new one. My battery was draining about 10% per hour.
