N95-8gb losing time and date

After upgrading to the new firmware my N95-8gb developed a strange problem. Sometimes when I shut it down the time and date is lost and I have to re-enter it.

This also happens most of the time when I take the battery out. Found a similar thread about an N73 doing this (http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=57204) but no solution.

Anybody else having this problem?

Do you have "Network Operator Time" switched to the on position?

No it's not. I don't think it was before either. This only started happening after the update.

Worth a try, easy fix if it works.

Most probably a hardware problem. Ask a Nokia repair center to take a look.

My n95 classic is giving me the same problem. Someone in the other thread mentioned that the problem could be with the internal back-up battery.

Anybody know if those internal backup batteries are user-replaceable?

To keep others updated.., I called the Nokia Customer Care/Repair center for advisement. They said to try restoring Factory Settings on the phone.

I tried that. Still no luck. The phone still asks me for date & time after booting up.
