As per title I am curious why Vodafone NZ still not do not support carrier time / NITZ?

It seems the majority of carriers around the world support it now:

ClockSync on my Android on Vodafone is good workaround but it would be nice if it wasn't needed

I am not sure is this is the same as Android getting Network time, but it works here, though relatively recently. Last year I am pretty sure it wasn't working. (In Android I have my time set to get from network automatically) and it's time is correct.

Interesting what phone and what version of android? Suspect the rom on the phone uses NTP over the internet if NITZ fails.

On my Xperia Arc S (ICS) I get the right time but not the right time zone so I am always set to GMT, have to uncheck "Automatic Time Zone" set it to correct one and then recheck it and all OK.

Same here, checked it against our NTP server and its under a second different. With network time unticked it was 8 seconds or so out.

NITZ is still deployed by a small % of carriers globally and is still the exception rather than the norm.

I don't know VF's official reasons for not having it but I would take a stab and say the licencing costs for such a feature will be big (like most NSN licencing charges) and in a country with a single timezone it's argueably far less useful than countries with multiple timezones.

Ahem, NZ technically has 2 time zones, the Chatham islands are 45mins ahead of the mainland,

No crayfish for you :) :)
