Calendar Patch and DST Patch: Same?
 
Hi, I'm trying to help a client with BB syncing problems. She's syncing to a Mac using Pocketmac, but since I've seen the same issue reported by non-Mac users, I'm posting here. The problem is that all-day events on the desktop get turned into 24-hour events on the BB (1am to 1am, thereby spanning 2 days), which then sync back to the desktop as a different event, causing duplicates.

I've checked the time zone settings on the computer and the BB. I found and installed the DST patch for the BB on 10/10. Her BB had the most recent software as of 10/10. Today I found some mention on the BB site of a "Calendar Patch" that appears to be different from the DST Patch I applied earlier. Can somebody clarify that for me?

I'm pretty unfamiliar with BBs, but I used to have a Treo (using Missing Sync) and now I have an iPhone (life is sweet). I'm a Mac consultant so please keep that in mind if you have any advice to offer.

Thanks in advance.

You don't say her BB model is , the calendar patch was/is for the 8300. Newer OS updates have included it... Likewise on the DST patch.

If you'll state what model and OS versions she is running, a user here will confirm if it includes those patches in the OS being used.

OK, sorry about the double post, I didn't know where the best place was.

I'm waiting on the model & OS (she's out of town) and will post back when I know.

Thanks.

no prob on the double post... just post it once, a moderator around here will move it if not placed in the best area.

The DST patch affected "almost" all models, but by now, most OS updates have included it. Likewise on the calendar patch for the 8300.
