iPhone can’t keep time

I think the New York Times application for the iPhone is pretty good. My chief complaint (other than the random crashing) is that the head short

Every now and then my iPhone has this issue where it can’t tell time properly. I wake it up, and it shows me a time several hours ago, then as if waking from a drunken stupor, slowly tries to catch up to reality, moving the clock forward by a small, random number of minutes. During these episodes the whole UI is sluggish, and it apparently doesn’t even accept phone calls. When “phone” is 5/6 of your name one would think at least that would work all of the time!

Check out this screenshot from the missed call sheet. It recorded 3 missed calls that arrived over the course of an afternoon all with the exact same arrival time, 9:40 AM. The phone never rang.

That was with v2.01, so I sure hope this is fixed in the future.

Update: to Frank’s comment – this wasn’t a matter of the phone bouncing between time zones. The phone’s time isn’t a whole number of hours behind.

  1. Mine had a time problem too. When I went to Montana it would alternate between central and mountain time. Nothing seemed to fix it.

    I just installed the 2.0.2 update, but since I’m not planning on being in Montana for a while (at least) I won’t be able to test it.

  2. Why are you avoiding Kristi’s calls and using bogus blog post for an excuse. Just answer your phone.
