I was under the impression that when you have the phone set to check time "online" or "network," that T-Mo [or whomever is the carrier] periodically checks the time and updates the phone's indicated time.
With this process, I suspect RIMS thinking is that there is no need to have a daylight savings time switch, even in areas where DST is not practiced [Arizona?] since the time is updated through the carrier.
This is different then Windows XP, for example, where the PC/Windows does NOT check the accuracy of the clock. One needs a third party program like I have, AtomTime Pro.
I don't know that they considered the calendar time differences between those set in Outlook and the Pearl. Maybe a Google search on that issue might turn something up.
Maybe it has to do with whether one tells Outlook to "trump" the Pearl settings or vice versa.
Or perhaps the Pearl has to be set to Blackberry as the source for time?
Or the default time settings/increments in Outlook and on the Pearl have to be the same. as well as length of day?
Just thinking out loud. May not have answered your question.
