    Post Problems after DST

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    Ever since the recent DST adjustment my calendar events on my Pearl are one hour ahead. The BB and Outlook sync just fine but events added to my Outlook are 1 hour ahead on my BB.

    -All timezones (desktop, OUtlook, and BB)are set to Eastern
    -the times on my BB and desktop are in sync

    Thanks

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~My IT Manager found some single file that didn't get updated on the BES server during the upgrade last year. I can't tell you what it is but I had the same issue. If I entered it on my BlackBerry they were an hour late. But if entered on my PC they were fine.

    I should have mentioned...I am actually not on a BES.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Hmmmm... That does present a different issue. How long have you had your BlackBerry? There was a download to fix it some time back.

    the dst is available at www.blackberry.com/ddst2007 through your browser on your blackberry. What kind of blackberry do you have and what software version do you have because not all devices require the patch

    I have the Blackberry 8100 (Pearl) v4.2.0.64 (Platform 2.2.0.37)

    Oh...I dont have a data plan so I can't access the patch through my browser on my bb. if you're wondering why I have a bb without a data plan....it was a gift

    .64 DOES require the DST patch, however you may also want to consider upgrading to a newer Operating System (done with desktop manager, no data required) as .64 had several annoying issues that were corrected with later versions.

    there is only 1 dst patch because the date of DST was changed in 2007. That patch still fixes the issues for 2008l. Also yes DST is in a few days but then when the fall comes the user will run in to an issue all over again so it is easier just to patch the device now and not have to worry abou it.

    the 2007 dst patch is different then the dst for 2008. president bush changed the dst time and the day in which it starts. it took effect in 2008. they didnt patch it prolly bc it would have taken to much time and effort when dst is in a few days.

    The change in date of DST first happened in 2007. It started last year. There is only 1 patch available for the BlackBerry device and it is the 2007 dst. It does fix the current issues with dst.
