It seems that when connecting to my PC, for either an iTunes sync or otherwise, the time and date change on my iPhone.

It's certainly not to the time on the PC as that is correct. It changes to something random, with the date sometimes altering by years!

I tried Auto time on and off and it makes no difference.

Has anyone else experienced this and what are the likely causes?

No, all GMT here.

If it wasn't so random I'd know where to look. There's no patteren and it's by different amounts each time. Hours, months or years!

Really frustrating.

If time is set to Auto, does it pick it up during a sync or from the internet?

i've seen this discussed a few times, but never heard a definite answer... i believe it syncs with your computer... or at least it is supposed to.
