    Daylight Savings Time

    Advertisement



    I don't know about everyone else on pinstack but I've read up on the upcomming daylight savings time issue and I'm still confused. I thought I'd start this thread and maybe people having the same problem as me can post their questions here. All right here's mine. I use bis, running os 4.1.0.359. I rely pretty heavily on my calender and sync my device with my pc at home. 1. How do I make sure my device switches over on the earlier date next month? I've read you can do it yourself, is there an easier option than this?2. How do I make sure my Outlook on my pc doesn't conflict with my phone? Is Microsoft going to put some type of patch or update?

    Re: Daylight Savings Time

    I have spent all day trying to read the threads and information and I am troubled by the fact that the patch seems to work with blackberry software but I am a mac user and don't have an uploader... can someone please explain how the patch process wokes for a mac user?

    Re: Daylight Savings Time

    All I did was download the device patch so my bb is going to be correct with the new daylight savings time. I will try to find the link to do this from your bb so if you want it then tell me. I'm not sure if the links previously posted have this patch download but I can get it to anyone who needs it.

    Re: Daylight Savings Time

    I installed the patch from http://www.blackberry.com/DST2007/patch/index2.shtml this morning. It all went fine. Then, this evening, I installed a program via DM and DM removed the patch because it was unrecognized. This isn't good...

    Re: Daylight Savings Time

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Congress set this about 9 months ago, so any OS release after that(most 4.1 and any 4.2 versions) should be fine. To be sure you can update to the newest OS version available from your Service Provider, or I'm sure a quick e-mail to RIM's customer support department to determine if the version you are running is compliant will solve your possible problem. Hope this helps.

    Re: Daylight Savings Time

    I have a BlackBerry 8100 Pearl with OS 4.2.0.71 (Cingular OS on a T-Mobile Pearl). Do I have this patch or do I need to get it? I only see downloadable updates on www.discoverblackberry.com if you're on a BES, but I am on a BIS. Help?

    PS: I found the table/chart that lists OS's that already have this patch and my OS and Platform, OS 4.2.0.71 (Platform 2.2.0.41), are already listed as having it.

    Edit: Thanks jlesh LOL I also emailed RIM about the issue.

    I am looking for that chart and must be either blind or stupid. Would you please paste the link?!? Thanks in advance.

    According to http://www.blackberry.com/select/dst...e_impact.shtml version 4.2.0.x requires the DST patch. 4.2.1 will already have the patch when it's released.

    So, my problem still exists. Desktop Manager removes the patch if I install/remove other software from my BB because the patch is unrecognized by DM. Anyone else have this problem?

    Re: Daylight Savings Time



    Above is a screen shot of DM removing the DST patch. I have to keep reinstalling the patch every time I add or update software on my BB which is a real PITA.

    Anyone else have this problem or know what to do about it?

    Re: Daylight Savings Time

    If no patch is downloaded, then the only trouble I would have is just updating the time manually?????

    I am having the same issue!!! I am on the latest OS for my 8700c. I have to readd the patch from the BB, takes just a few minutes buts its still a pain in the a$$.

    NOTE:: I just looked at the website and I do not need the patch my OS has it in it...
