I have a new iPhone 5 and on the Verizon network. The time randomly changes and is incorrect more than correct. There is no set amount that it is off , 2 hrs, 11:36 etc. Called Verizon and they sent me to Apple. So last Friday I did the appointment thing and they did a complete restore. It worked great until I walked out of the mall then wrong time a gain. I went back to Apple last night and they gave me a new phone. Then this morning I woke up (late for work) the clock was wrong again thus affecting the alarm. Just called local Verizon and they said sorry but would have to live with it. WTH?

I was on the phone with Verizon this moring for an hour. Tried removing clocks, manual set etc and only corrects for a little while. So they had me do another hard reset, again worked great for about an hour.

Curious, are you using WIFI? I bet the antenna is simply connecting to a tower that is simply 'off'. You're not close to a different time zone, are you?

Try turning off location services for setting the time zone. Settings/Privacy/Location Services/System Services [at the bottom]\Setting Time Zone. This also saves battery.
