My Sprint Android Nexus S had a problem with the time zone change last night. Not only did it set the time back by an hour (possibly based on the carrier signal), but it also switched from Central Time To Mountain Time. I am able to fix the problem by unchecking the “Automatic – use carrier supplied values” and manually specifying central time, but if I recheck the “Automatic” box it changes back to mountain time.
It seems as if Sprints Carrier signal accidentally started sending out a different timezone instead of sending out time code and saying it was CDT. So basically the Android clock fell back by two hours instead of one.

The time on my phone was set back 2 hours. The problem seems to be resolved now.

Did you have to change anything or did it just fix itself?
My husband and I have the exact phone….Nexus S…. with Sprint as my carrier. He was in Indiana last night/this morning and when he woke up, his phone was correct. I was in TN, and when I woke up, my phone was an hour EARLIER than it should have been! (it said 5:00am, it was actually 6:00am). I had to turn my phone OFF and back ON in order for it to be on the correct time. We both had our phones settings the same —- WIERD!
Very strange. I probably should have tried rebooting it first to see if that fixed it.
Heh, apparently this is a still a thing.
Thanks vicki, you helped me with the reboot idea 2 years later :D
Same thing happened to me today…
