    My iPad is consistently 2 minutes ahead of my iPhone and all my home and work computers, the iPad connected to either network. Even after resetting it manually then going to automatic update the time jumps back to 2 minutes ahead.

    It just seems strange.

    I've been having the same problem---only it is 4 or 5 minutes for me. I asked about this on another thread. Apparently if you have the wifi only version, the time isn't set automatically.

    If you find the solution, please post it. ok?

    I have a 3G version although I haven't activated the cellular service after it ended a few weeks ago. I only use it for travelling. Hopefully someone has seen this before!

    Yes, I've noticed the clock issue as well. I'm just hooked up to wifi, but you would think that there would be a connection via internet to a world clock like computers have to adjust the time instead of manually doing it on your own.

    Two minutes into the future? Sweet. You could kill in Wall street with that capability.

    Sorry my iPad is currently on the second, but it doesn't seem to sync time very often.

    Yes, mine is 1min 43 seconds fast. How very odd!
    I only have Wifi, and I must agree, that as my desktop PC is spot on, I would have thought the iPad would be too! I have just reset my iPad clock and I'll monitor it and see what happens. Oh dear it seems my OCD is showing again!!!:rolleyes:

    Thirty two hours later

    Ok 32 hours on and my iPad has gained 25 seconds. That means it should gain a whole 5 minutes in 16 days. Any one worked out yet why it isn't synched with the PC?

    My iPad is consistently 35 seconds slow of my laptop which is sharing it's Internet connection with the iPad
    The laptop gets it's signal on the third bounce from a hotel around the corner and is right on with my wireless Brookstone weather station
    Both of them agree closely with the time reported by the Emerald Sequoya Observatory app on the ipad
    So how many iPads does it take to tell the correct time
