Standard cell phones from Verizon just sync the time from the closest CDMA cell base station (which is, in turn, syncing from GPS). It sounds like either your phone software needs to be updated or (unlikely) your local base station is not getting the GPS signal.
Either way, I would just visit your local Verizon Wireless store or call their tech support line.

Verizon Wireless seems to have a problem adjusting to the new daylight savings time rules. Regardless how many times I try setting the clock on my Verizon Windows Mobile phone to the correct time, Verizon Wireless or the phone software is resetting the time to one hour before the correct time. The resets seem to happen once a minute.
Is anyone else seeing this same problem?
Also any thoughts how to fix this silly problem?
