    Question on Daylight Savings for BIS users

    Advertisement



    My company does not use BES as we do not have an Exchange Server. However, most of our outside sales force uses BIS for either Cingular or Verizon.

    I've been reading up on this all day and it seems that all the fixes are for BES users and admins. What's the fix for BIS users? Desktop Managar 4.2 and sync date and time? Or, manually update the time?

    And I thought that since the time source on the blackberry is set to be either Blackberry or Cellular, that this update thing would be a non issue for us BIS users.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do a search. I am sure you will find the answer. Basically, theere is O/S fix to take care of it, or you can manually change the time

    Re: Question on Daylight Savings for BIS users

    I am confused..

    I spoke to T-Mobile (our provider) for our non-BES users who said there is not update needed. It is handled via "the network".

    However, per the information on the Blackberry web site -- it says an update is needed. Is this due to the Desktop Manager synching "time and date"?

    Is the software patch or update needed for non-BES users???

    Help..

    I did the patch, it only took about 5 minutes. Just do it. I am on BIS by the way.

    Not for sure, but i think that BES will be updated thru the company that gave you your BB wirelessly and BIS will have to do a patch. On the site it goes into detail about all this and that when the new OS is released (version 4.2.1) whenever that is, it will be already included with it. I installed the patch and it did not take long. I am on BIS also. I am personally ready for the new OS if it takes care of this. Anyone have any idea of when it might be released.

    I downloaded my update from the link mentioned by CoolFinalFan. I've had no problems. When I view my applications, it's listed as a separate application called "net_rim_bb_timezoneotapatch..." When I sync, all the times are accurate.

    Using the browser on their BlackBerry devices, users can visit www.blackberry.com/dst2007 to download the appropriate patch automatically based on the version of their BlackBerry Device Software. You can also send the web site address in an email message to users.
