I'm running the latest 5.3 and my time is an hour behind. I'm in pacific time. It is set to get it auto from 3g.

There may be an option for daylight savings...

I dont see anything like that

Loz says:
I don't have one, so can't offer more help than that. But the fact that it's an hour behind suggests that's what it could be. You may need to look at the instruction book to see if there is a daylight savings thing in the time and date options.

You can set the time manually. Press the menu icon. Then Settings. Then Device Options. Then Device Time.

But I don't want to set it manually :/

JES says:
Why not? It probably won't change back. Maybe the reason it won't change is because you have a weak 3g signal.

Or you could try a reboot.

The main reason I got 3G was to set the time automatically. Can't believe Amazon has never heard of NTP.

Maybe if I turn off my router and force it to use 3G for a bit it will update. For so much technology, it can't even get the time right.

JES says:
That was your main reason? It takes 10 seconds to set the time manually.

I HATE setting clocks. DESPISE it.

That is really weird. All the time you have taken to post on here about it - you could have set the clock numerous times.

Do you know how horrible day light savings and time drift is? I cringe.

It really does just take 10 seconds to set the clock.

I am in Hawaii. We don't have day light savings here.

You are lucky

Unless every clock you have is digital and connected to the internet in some way, you are eventually going to get drifting.

Atomic ;-) even my wrist watch

Loz says:
So if you have an atomic wrist watch, why do you need the time on the kindle to be 100% correct?

For the Times I don't wear the watch.

Whatever floats your boat. Good luck with it.
