    So today I drove from the eastern time zone back to the central time zone. Only my iPhone 4 stayed on eastern time. I had to change it to manual, find somewhere on the same time zone, and then switch back to network.

    Anyone else seen this yet? Fluke? Bug?

    cant answer for the iPhone 4 but my 3G did that before and it eventually fixed itself.

    I find usually a restart usually fixes that kind of issue.

    Never had a problem on the 3GS. It would switch just fine, twice a day if need be.

    I flew to CA and back (Denver) this weekend and my iPhone 4 correctly updated the time.

    I wonder if it makes a difference that the phone is off when you cross the line? (Since obviously your phone was in airplane mode.)

    Oh well...not gonna worry about it until the next trip!

    I crossed time zones yesterday morning - not sure about the i4 yet - but on my 3G it changed on its own.
    Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Automatically turned to "on"
    Maybe that's it?

    I had issues last year when I made a cross country road trip with my 3G. We crossed 1 time zone per day and each morning the alarm woke me up an hour early because it didnt update the hour. I think it may have even switched back and forth in confusion, because I checked it before I went to bed each night. Good thing I was going West and not East.

    When I drove east from central to eastern, the iPhone 3GS changed on its own. I purchased the 4 while in the eastern time zone, and when I drove home to central time, it didn't change - even though it was set to use network time. <shrug>
