If the base-stations time is off, then the mobiles will too, as it is the base
stations that announces the time. The operator should have their base-stations
time adjusted it seems.

GSM base stations does not need as tight time as CDMA, so there is certainly a
reason for why GSM did not start out with timing announcements from the start.
