I swear that prior to jan 2015 this was not a problem. But Since the new year, my Blu Dash Jr. reverts to Jan 1 2014 during the boot process. It displays the correct date and time for a second or two, then reverts to Jan1 2014, then IF my provider supplies the correct date and time, the phone adjusts automatically. The problem is when my provider's server screws up, my phone stays stuck on Jan 1 2014 until I manually change it. What makes this weird is:

1. This wasn't the case before 2015. (I bought the phone in 2014 but its kernel and chips must date back a few years)
2. It remembers the correct time of day, just the date ges lost.
