If you woke up to see your phone’s time is an hour earlier than it should be, you’re not alone.
Many Manitobans and people across the country experienced a technical issue with their Bell smartphones Monday morning.
A Bell spokesperson confirmed the problem Monday morning. Just before 8 a.m. CT, the spokesperson said the issue has been resolved and the update will be done automatically, but users may need to reboot their phones or go on airplane mode to trigger the time change.
CBC Manitoba has requested comment from Rogers as well about whether their phones had the same issue Monday morning.
Daylight time does not end until next week, at 2 a.m. on Nov. 7.
Bell responds to reports that its smartphones went back 1 hour early today, a week before scheduled: ‘Some of our mobility clients may have experienced an incorrect time change on their phone. Our teams are investigating…in order to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.’
