    Hi all, does anyone have this issue with their ipad 1? every now and then the time jumps ahead 21 hours, I guess it's a time zone issue but I have checked my setting and it shows as being set for Perth time (Australia which is correct btw) but I still have to set it to the correct date and time at least once or twice a week :mad: hope someone can help, I know it isn't a performance or operating issue but its plain annoying ...thanks

    Sometimes this can be caused by

    'Settings', 'Mail, Contacts, Calendar', 'Time Zone Support' - which is where you can decide whether the iPad will automatically adjust the time for what it perceives to be the time zone you are in. Have a look there and see if you've accidentally got it set to an inappropriate zone.

    every checked in the right boxes Tim, really weird it's held the correct time for the second day now but I know it will jump ahead at some point, when it has done, the first thing I check before I do adjust it is to check that it's still set to Perth time zone ... much oddness thanks for replying so quickly btw

    The timezone set it Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendar->Time Zone Support only affects the calendar events, but not the actual time. So it doesn't matter what time zone you have set there.

    You mentioned, that you set the time manually, does this mean you go to Settings->General->Date&Time->Set automatically: Off->Set Date&Time ?

    If so, what happens, if you just leave it at Set automatically: On?

    Ok, but what if you go to Settings->General->Date&Time and then turn "Set automatically" to on? Does the time still jump around?

    This happened to me on Saturday but with my iPhone. First time it has happened but nothing would fix it except a reboot.

    that's one of the problems maybe?? .. there isn't a "set automatically" tab in there ... I have 3 settings
    "24 hour time
    time zone
    set date and time"
    so I still can't "make it so"
    appreciate the efforts though DontUnderstandMyIpad (I don't either lol)

    Is it a 3G iPad?

    Do 3G iPad's get their time from the network or from an Internet Time Server using NTP?

    So this is what the settings screen should look like.

    Apple has a tendency to remove options, if they are currently not applicable, but I really have no idea what other setting you would have to change, to make the "Set automatically" option appear again.

    I was just trying to work out whether the 'Set Automatically' option was only on 3G iPads. Let us know how it goes....difficult problems are always the most interesting...
