Not sure if this is a bug or not, but when I go in to an account (two Google ones) and set a schedule for peak time to start and stop for email sync, the times that I select are instantly set back by two hours.

I go into the window to set the peak start time, select accept. Then I do the same with peak end time. Both are currently displayed correctly (0630 and 1930 in case anyone is interested). Now I swipe back from the account to get back to the main accounts. I then click back on the account I have just edited and the peak start and end times have stepped back two hours to 0430 and 1730. If I swipe back to the main account page and select the account again, the times have stepped back another hour to 0330 and 1630. I can do the same again and again and it steps back by an hour each time

@jonicox - Could you try the same with Time and date "Automatic update" off ? Go to settings->System->Time and Date. Could you also let me know your carrier and if you are in your "home" country when this happen or roaming abroad. Thx.

Hi. thanks for the suggestion, but I still get the same problem. I took it off automatic and then changed from the default of Helsinki to my location in the UK. In am on O2 and have not yet roamed outside of the UK

@jonicox - Default is Helsinki when in automatic update mode ??? or you meant the other way around ?

Sorry. When I took it off automatic, it defaulted to Helsinki, which I then changed to London

@jonicox - While having automatic update time on could you perform the following steps:

- Turn device into flight mode, wait 5seconds, turn the device online again and wait for network signal.
- Note down current time displayed in the device and In a terminal perform following command:

dbus-send --system --print-reply --type=method_call --dest=org.ofono /ril_0 org.ofono.NetworkTime.GetNetworkTime

- Grab the values(numbers in from of variant) for UTC, Received and Timezone.
- Note down current time again and perform above command again, get values the same values.
