I am not claiming anything is happening. Let me just start off saying that.
So far I have seen 6 people post something on Facebook similar to this:
“My alarm went off this morning at its normal time.. I go and walk out of the room, and the clock in the living room is 20 minutes ahead…”
All 6 people used their cell phones as their alarms by the way.
Now, At first, I thought.. “Silly! You fell back asleep!!!”, but as the other posts showed up (No connection between the 6 individuals) It puzzled me, I asked which cell phone carriers a few were the same, but for the most part, they were different.
How could this happen??
Again, I am not saying anything is “Going on” I am asking a question here, how could 6 people (In a general 20 mile radius) all have a cell phone time problem? Each time it was posted, it was from 8am alarm to 8:20 on other clocks, and when they looked at their phones again to compare, the time was the same as on another clock.
I know my car loses time often, every week or so I have to change the time back to “normal” but I figured that did not happen with Cell Phones.
ETA: I should also add, the people posting this are very reputable people, not one to make up stories, or anything of the sort.edit on 19/12/2012 by Britx because: (no reason given)

I don`t know anything about cell phones but i would assume that the clock is powered by a battery,probably a different battery than the battery that powers the phone so that the clock doesn`t need to be reset each time the phone battery dies.
The clock on your computer is powered by a small battery,even on desktop computers.
