    Go to http://www.blackberry.com/select/dst2007/index.shtml for updates regarding this issue.

    Also check out http://www.microsoft.com/windows/timezone/dst2007.mspx for additional information.

    I've just tried to patch a couple of devices by going to www.blackberry.com\dst2007 as directed by the relevant RIM pages. I can see that the devices are downloading and running a script when they hit the pages, but I don't see any evidence that the patch is installed, as RIM indicate i should by going to 'Options > DST 2007'

    Anyone else tried this and had evidence it has actually patched?

    anytime I goto blackberry.com\dst2007 it just pulls up the page as if I were looking at it on a PC

    What s/w version are you running? The newer versions of 4.2 don't require patched, so that may be why you don't see anything different.

    Everytime I visit this page on my device, it spends a good while requesting, then loading and then running script, and then eventually the page loads.

    How very mysterious...

    I just tried it with my 7100g running OS 4.1.0.292 and all I get is the same page redrawn when I go to http://www.blackberry.com/dst2007 .

    Guess I'll just wait till the patches are supposed to be released and try it again. Certainly at the moment although the devices I've tested appear to download and run a script, there's no sign of the patch being applied as RIM say, checking in Options for a '2007 DST Patch' option

    Patches will be available from the RIM website in February. I don't know exactly where yet but I will let you all know as soon as this happens.

    Re: DST CHANGES in 2007

    I've seem to have run into a problem I'm not sure about. The users bb seems to have sync problems, but nothing to correct it works. Even wiping the device and doing an enterprise activation. The only indication of an error I get is when I check the account on the BES. I see the message 'Failed Forwarding Message' down where the carrier information is.

    Any ideas?
    thanks

    Re: DST CHANGES in 2007

    Cause 1
    The Microsoft Exchange Server failed to respond.
    Resolution
    Send a message from the Microsoft Outlook client to ensure that it can send and receive messages. If the attempt to send fails, contact your system administrator and confirm if there are any issues regarding the Microsoft Exchange Server.
    Cause 2
    There are network problems.
    Resolution
    Send a Personal Identification Number (PIN) message from the BlackBerry device to verify that it can contact the network.
    1. On the BlackBerry device Home screen, go toOptions>Network Settings.
    2. Click the trackwheel and select Register with Wireless Network.
    3. Save your changes.
    Cause 3
    There is insufficient memory on the computer.
    Resolution
    Free up some memory by closing open applications.
