Angry Daylight savings issue since Sunday?

Please Login to Remove!

I searched on Google and on here to see if anyone is having issues like I am. Since Sunday my 8300 is off(early) by one hour. I set my time to "Blackberry" in the date/time option. Network seems to show the right time in the options but if I choose that setting the phone refuses to use this time.
If I manually set the correct time, all of my calender items are still wrong.

I spoke to people using other types of blackberry's and services(AT&T and Sprint) who seem to have the same issue. I also spoke to my company's IT's dept(large 30k person company) who admitted that they got a large number of calls about this on Monday morning, and have yet to find out why or an answer. I guess the worst case is I have to wait until this Sunday for a fix.

And yes, I have the DST patch on my 8300. I even reapplied it and hard booted my 8300 several times. I'm using BES, BTW.

I have the same issue. Like you I have had the DST patch installed. The network time is always an hour ahead then the actual time.

I assumed my issue was that I was travelling in the UK at the weekend and their clocks changed then (so for one week they are only four hours ahead). When I returned to the USA yesterday the problem was now an hour out.

Hoping Saturday changes things.

The DST Patch does not fix the problem. Im going to try and upgrade the firmware to the latest version. I met a coworker with a 8300 on AT&T with the same issue today...

Do you have OS 4.2 on your device? Unfortunately this seems to be a recurring issue. Way to go RIM.

I ran into this on my Sprint 8830 and had to follow the steps in a now seemingly deleted RIM KB article. This one is very close to that KB article:

Clock did not change to display the correct time for DST

But here are the actual steps that I did, which is what was in the original KB article (for the most part):

My clock fell back

So I updated the firmware to the latest AT&T supported(4.2.2.166) and it still does not show the right time. The DST patch is applied.

I guess Im waiting for Sunday!
