    7100 DST patch

    Advertisement



    I just bought a 7100g, and notice it had a lsiting in the options "2007 DST Patch". What exactly is a DST patch, I know it probably has something to do with an IT policy, right?

    The DST patch is Daylight Saving Time. At this link (http://www.blackberry.com/newsletter...ml?CPID=NLC-41) on BlackBerry's web site tells all about it.
    Needed to get a replacement 8330 Curve again, so I got a New pin and it's in my profile... Got 8330m now!

    No problem... With daylight saving dates changing
    they had to make the patch or the time was off by an hour.

    OK, but thats really for the older BBs right, like our Curves technology is such that it compensates automatically?

    I think so. I know on my old 7100i it had OS 4.1 and needed the patch.
    So I'd guess with the newer OS it would be included within the OS.

    Well, in my old 7105t installing the DST patch KILLED the device! Later, however, by some interim provider-initiated upgrade the patch became unnecessary.

    The dates that Daylight Savings Time took effect changed, which is what the patch "fixed". It's also not device specific, it's OS specific: for example, an 8700 running 4.1 would need the patch, but the same device running 4.2 would not.
