I've run into The Android Leaderboard Bug yet again. What's that you might ask?
On some Android devices (all?) you can unlock the device and enter the game without it prompting you for 1001 adverts. Importantly this can also mean that you can access the game without all of the "this leaderboard event has started" messages getting thrown up that you have to click "close" on. That is actually important because the game uses displaying that as "registering" for the leaderboard event.
Open up your Android device, get into the game, the "real world clock" has meant that an event (such as Blue Data) has started but because you haven't clicked the promo, you're not registered. Now go and open some blue data pads, go back to the leaderboard section and no credit.
There are various other "timer" bugs on Android too that seem to never get fixed, such as an upgrade not showing as "completed" unless you restart the game.
Word of advice - on Android, always "close" the application, never leave it in the background and "locked" beause the app is just too buggy to work correctly.
