    It is needed if you plan on syncing with a server or a desktop that has it applied. Otherwise one or the other will be incorrect. You can se your time manually, but its so easy to install / deploy why wouldn't you.

    There is a discussion in the BES section for server admins.

    Re: DST 2007 Patches for BlackBerry Devices

    NEW TO BB: WHAT IS A PATCH AND HOW TO YOU GO ABOUT LOADING THESE INTO YOUR BB? ON CINGULAR PLAN WITH EDGE SIGNAL. WOULD LIKE TO UNDERSTAND MORE SO I CAN NOT FEEL CLUELESS ABOUT SOME OF THESE DISCUSSIONS. I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT WHEN DST OCCURRED THE PHONES WOULD AUTOMATICALLY CHANGE THE TIME? IS THIS NOT CORRECT WITH BB?

    Welcome dlevans06!
    The patch is for the DST changes for 2007.
    I see on your profile that you have an 8800, if so, your device does not need the patch installed, it already has the update
