Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist with this issue today.

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your phones and the date and time settings.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Model Number of the phone system you are working with? Since this is a cordless system, that model should be printed on a sticker on the bottom or back of the MAIN base unit (model sent is for a single cordless handset).

2) What landline phone service provider (phone company) you have for this phone line?

3) Have you noticed HOW LONG it takes for the date & time to go back to to Jan. 2 @ whatever time is displayed - once you enter the correct date and time?
