Default Wrong time on my Pearl ???

Please Login to Remove!

Howdy all,

Tried downloading the DST patch from RIM - it appears to have vanished - I guess I might have missed the cut-off.

I manually change the time on my Pearl - Network time is correct (DST adjusted) but when I turn off / on my Pearl - the time reverts back to pre- DST time .... real pain in the neck, Update time option appears to do nothing to my Pearl. How can I resolve this issue or am I screwed for the next 3 weeks ?? Damn US congress sucks - sheepish Canadians always follow. Please help - thanks !

Use blackberry time instead of network time.

I can manually change to the correct time but my calendar entries are all wrong.

You can check if you have the update by going to "options". You should see "2007 DST Patch" on top list. If it's not there go to link below using your BlackBerry's browser and press "download" button that takes you to an over-the-air (OTA) jad file.

There is no window of opportunity to do this. I did it for my friend's BlackBerry last night and it worked after the required reboot.

I have the 2007 DST Patch but the network time and the blackberry time appear 1 hour behind. I'm in MST -7 on Rogers.

Should the network time be at the correct time? or is there something wrong with my 2007 DST Patch?
