    Just about everytime I try to do anything with my phone, it states that a new time zone has been detected and asks if I want to change time zones. I have not changed time zones and whether I touch 'yes" or "no", the time does not change.

    I am able to use the phone after that, but it is annoying and takes time. If you could tell me how to stop this, I would appreciate it so much!!!

I can help with the "new time zone detected" problem.
To stop thos, you go in setting, near the end (option number 10 on my model) there is "auto update for time", just put it OFF.
Hope it helped.

Incorrect time

model of phone would help, but some older phones you need to receive a call before it will update, some may have a setting in the control system setting for manualy setting time and selecting for day light saving..
most newer phone have a setting to set it auto or manually you will find this in the date & time location, also make sure you have selected the location for your time zone as well...sounds silly but see that to many time the phone is in the wrong zone and if not set to auto it will not update if you travel to current time zone and correct time

How do I set my clock ?

Most cell phones will automatically update themselves for time changes, such as traveling to a different time zone or for daylight savings. If your phone does not automatically adjust itself, try turning it off and turning it back on. This will force it to reconnect and check it's time with the cell providers servers.

I have tmobile and can not send or recieve mms messages keeps telling me no message setteing for mms how do i fix this ? please help thank jimmy cosby the phone is a blue lg ks365 please help wit this...

HI jcosby007 Ok you need to get to the menu settings on the phone. Power cycling really doesn't help you in this case. Once you get to mms settings you need to hit the options. In the options it should give you a viewing options for your messages. You need to set it to time and make sure it doesn't say contacts. Also make sure that the phone isn't block by att from recieving mms txts. those are picture messages. Hope this help

The time on my phone is normal but when I'm texting the time is an hour and 58 minutes off. How do I fix it?

make sure phone is set to proper time zone with the correct daylight saving time setting
some phones have a seperate time zone setting for email and text programs which can usually be found in the email or text program (e.g. iPhone and Windows phone)

if all else fails contact your cellular provider
they are supposed to be able to help you with this sort of thing

i hope this helps

Txt problem

Go to settings, and select phone settings then select Time and Date. Make sure that the Time Zone updating is set to Manual. Go down to Time Zone and select the area where you live. Hit ok and confirm yes. Before saving make sure to set Time Zone Updating back to Automatic. Save your settings. Your phone will reboot. You should be fine after that.

I noticed that the time is wrong in my incoming text messages.

Dear FixYa Team,

Thank you for your response to my query.

I have already fixed the problem before I got your email.

This is what I did: I turned the cell phone off and reinserted the SIM card, set the right time in the Settings for Date & Time, changed the time zone to GMT +8 (our country's location), maintained the O for Daylight Savings, saved the changes, then selected "On" for "Auto-update of date and time". That solved the whole problem!

Anyway, thank you for your email. God bless.
