I have a bizarre problem with my Lumia 800 running on Optus - the clock runs slow! I have had to set the clock multiple times since I got it, and within about a week of setting it each time the clock is several minutes behind time. **bleep** about a fortnight of setting it the time reads over 10 minutes behind where it should be. I've noticed that unlike on a lot of other phones, there is no 'sync time automatically' or similar feature on the Lumia 800.
**bleep** a quick Google search, the only other mention I found similar to this problem was on another Nokia thread, of people on 3 UK complaining that their clock was actually running too fast:
Unfortunately there didn't seem to be a solution to their problem
For the record my phone was purchased through Optus, and I haven't made any modifications to it whatsoever. I have updated it with the latest firmware, however the problem has persisted since I first got the phone.
Can anyone please help me?
Hi all, sorry for the delay getting back to you - for the record, I'll second the above replies and say that there's definitely no option to set time automatically on my Lumia 800..
Strangely enough, my issue resolved itself after a few months and I have no idea what fixed it!
On perhaps an unrelated note, for a period of about a month or two, my phone would routinely notify me about a new software update that was available. I connected my phone to the computer and updated the software, only for it to tell me a few days later that another update was available. After a couple of weeks of this, I looked into the update version and found it was the same update every time. Once again, this makes no sense to me whatsoever.
I have to say that I was really excited when I bought the Lumia 800, thinking that Microsoft (and Nokia) would bend over backwards to support the few customers that made the switch from iPhones etc. to such a fledgling platform, but I've since found that after-sales support has been pretty poor (evidenced in part by the lack of official response to this thread). I'm also really disappointed that Microsoft have essentially ditched their most loyal customers by upgrading to Windows Phone 8 without support for 7.5 users. Instead we've been waiting in the dark for the 7.8 update that still hasn't come out yet..
Apologies for the rant, thanks to the above users for trying to help me out - hope your phone issues resolve themselves also!
