    Was an hour late picking up my kids from school. They only waited outside in 20 degree temps 1/2 hr before they went back in school. Called verizon. They said I could not cancelled early without paying termination charges. My phone is still an hour off conected to there networks clock. My kids said they will not be Verizon customers. Venting cuz I made a deal with the devil I guess. They can do no wrong.

    Could be some crazy NTP issue or something on their network. Manually set the time on your phone if you're worried.

    Maybe your phone is set for the wrong time zone (eastern vs central)?

    How again is that elements of business?
    You weren't using it for work. So it's still not business.
    I use my phone at work as well, and it's not business. I.thought you were only plowing your driveway?

    Aren't you on the west side of Michigan? That's close enough to Central time I'd expect random time zone screw ups.

    I take it you don't work outside for a living?

    I have know idea how someone who works outside couldn't tell time within an hour just based off of the sun's location in the sky..........

    Pardon me sir, but we are entering a new time zone, would you like to change your time, or would you like me to do it automatically? Also that means you need to take your pills earlier as well.
