I'm setting up my Ion so that I can transfer all my apps to it. However, right now with a fully charged battery, the phone on all the time, no SIM card and "Automatic Date and Time" in Settings unchecked, the time goes off and the date keeps resetting to February 14, 1970.

I don't want to move to this phone to find out it can't keep time. Any help would be appreciated!

it seems that the phone is totally off that's why the phone time is back.

Probably you removed com.qualcomm.timeservice apk, that sets the time in our Xperia S

** I'm not sure if thats the correct name

I found the problem, I have the SlimBean ROM and strangely it turns off the clock when you turn the phone off.
