I have two Android handsets on Vodafone and a Lumia 1020 (my day-to-day phone). The time on Lumia 1020 is two or three minutes behind. I know the two Android are correct because my PCs all sync with ntp.net.nz time servers and the time matches with those handsets. All three handsets are on Vodafone.



Anyone else seeing this?

Voda doesn't have time on their network AFAIK, so where is the 1020 getting its time from? manually?

As far as I know WP8 does not get the time from the internet (NTP via data) if the mobile network doesn't provide it (like Vodafone).

Vote for the feature for WP8 here

Android starting using NTP from ICS onwards I think, so Android is using NTP if there is no mobile network time.

Maybe WP8 sync's time with PC via USB when connected OR maybe it does an initial time sync via data if there is no mobile network time but doesn't continue to sync. Did you ever use a 2degrees or Telecom sim when testing your lumia, might have got network time from then.

Anyway why doesn't Vodafone NZ provide network time?

Ragnor:

Reason I've been told on numerous occasions is licencing costs, and the fact it's largely a moot point with so many new phones using NTP.

NITZ is actually a relatively uncommon thing across the world, you would think a network would just have it enabled but default but it's really only on a minority of networks globally.

Windows Phone doesn't support NTP so I still don't understand how those devices got the time in the first place

freitasm: Neither do I... Does Telecom use network time? The device was first setup on Telecom and then moved to Vodafone.
