A few days ago I noticed the time on my HTC M8 Windows Phone is about 15 minutes fast.   Any idea how I can fix it?   I powered off and back on again, didn't work.   I turned off the setting to automatically set the time, set it manually, then turned it back on, and the time went back to 15 minutes fast.  Thoughts?   Thanks!

I actually solved it.   I noticed that all my calendar events showed 15 later than what my Outlook calendar showed, so I went back into the Date/Time settings to look around.

What I did was turn off automatic setting of Time Zone, then set Time Zone manually to Central time, which changed my clock from 11:45AM EDT to 10:30 CDT, correcting the 15-minute time delta.   I then changed the time zone to Eastern time, and it changed my clock to 11:30 EDT.    I then turned on automatic setting of time zone, and my clock stayed at 11:30.

Long story short ... somehow my phone thought I was in a non-existent timezone that was 15 minutes faster than Eastern time.   Weird ... fixed now though.

I'd contact support directly via the Contact Us link at the very top right.  Cell phones get there time from the cell towers.
