Three Time Zones At Once?

I recently spent about a week in New Mexico with a couple of friends.
My buddy asks me what time it is.
I looked at my phone...an old flip-top.
My phone said 9:11.
His wife says her phone says 10:11.
We were not sure what time-zone we were in, so I hopped over to the car and looked at the clock.
It says 11:11.
What the hell is going on? We wondered.
This was way out in the boonies in the White Sands area.
Maybe our phones were not automatically updating the clock as they usually do.
There was no phone reception in the area.
We just kind of laughed it off.
About an hour later we rechecked and all of the times were synchronous.
It just hit me how odd that was.
I'm sure there is an explanation.

maybe some of your electronic devices didn`t account for daylight savings time and time zones? some electronic devices aren`t as smart as you think they are.

Clearly you have broken the space time continuum.

My best guess is that my more antiquated phone lost signal first.
Then my friends phone lost hers after mine but had updated the time before it lost signal.
The clock in the car didn't rely on a signal to keep on ticking.
I think the car's clock was correct.
Mystery solved?

different phones useing different carriers or even on the same carrier different make and model of phones are compatible/not compatible with different cell towers,
your phone should display the time at the location of the last tower it connected to.

the two phones had last connected to different towers in different time zones,


also there are some counties in that region that ignore day light savings time.
