Just got the s21+(T-mobile) and I have my time setting as manual so I am always aware if what time it is without having to check the time zone its on. Every time I cross time zones back into my residential time zone the time zone "automatic" feature turns back on putting my phone at the wrong time! I have restarted my phone multiple times, done the safe mode thing, set the time different ways and every time it still switches to automatic.

I just turned off "Automatic Date and Time" and changed the time zone on my phone and watched the time change.  I then turned off my phone.  I restarted it and it remained on the new time zone.  This should simulate crossing time zones.

If your phone is not operating that way I would go to Samsung Members app and request help.

The automatic date and time feature turns itself on whenever the phone is rebooted. How do you permanently disable it?
