Looks like the Magic uses NITZ to keep the time accurate. Using the app "Navy Clock" which displays the time from an atomic clock and your phones time it doesn't appear the Magic's time is very accurate (or slowly changing to the correct time).

Anyone know if Vodafone supports NITZ?

Vodafone NZ don't support NITZ. It's actually not that common at all around the world.

sbiddle: Vodafone NZ don't support NITZ. It's actually not that common at all around the world.

Wikipedia says:
NITZ is supported by most large carriers around the world. Carriers that support this feature include[5]:

Not that common within Vodafone Group maybe, but others seem to use it.

@pc: In our little corner of the world, Telecom XT and 2degrees both support it.  Vodafone NZ are the odd man out on this one.  We had quite a lengthy discussion about this a few weeks back.
