    I have been having to reset the time clock on my iPad every day because it is often off be maybe 5 minutes per day. Is this normal? If not, what can I do to correct the problem?

    Thanks.

    It's been a couple of days since I posted, but no response.

    Surely someone else has had this problem n'cest pas?

    So I thought I would ask again?

    Help!

    Mine sets itself from the network and is always exactly right. I don't know what country you are in but you may want to go to settings and make sure you have that checked. Use network time...

    There is no "automatically on" switch on mine. Only choices are "24 hour time," "set time zone," and "set date and time." None of these choices has an automatic option.

    Under 24 hour time, your iPad does not have "Set Automatically"?

    What OS are you running?

    I am running 4.2.1

    No, 24hour time is only an on-off switch!

    My OS is 4.2.1----same as yours!

    I seem to remember someone saying that the non-3G models didn't have the network option.

    SBHOKC, your sig says you have both types. Could you check this? I'm afraid I only have an older iPod Touch for comparison. It does not have the network option.

    I never thought that they would be different in that respect. Going to look now.......

    Well you are absolutely correct. The wifi only models do NOT have this feature and the other one is 4 minutes fast all the time. Good call twerppoet. OP it looks like you will have to live with it until Apple comes up with a fix. Sorry, tried to help.
