I always set my Nokia E7 to offline mode overnight.  This morning when I woke up it was already showing the correct time, i.e. New Zealand standard time, before I set it to online.

I was always under the impression that the time update was done when the phone was on line. How did the update occur when the phone was offline?

daylight savings is built into the phone OS itself.

No, no no - it's a government conspiracy. We're all being monitored and this slip up is proof of that Tongue Out

You should have wrapped it in tinfoil to stop the spy satellites getting to it.

Oops. I stand corrected. You know all these years I have been saying it as I wrote. Silly me!

I guess that must be it.  I had wondered about something similar.  I have the timezones for overseas friends set on the phone and it tells me when it is "summer time" at their place.  Makes sense. There must be some way it updates the actual dates.

Obviously it's quite common for the OS to have it built in. Some iOS versions have "daylight time" issues, then again probably not surprising as being US based the US is the world and nothing outside there counts. Foot in Mouth

I don't trust tinfoil, my bedroom is triple lead lined.  That stops all those nasty government agency people spying in me at night.

It can be frustrating at times for people like me who use our phones as alarms and sometimes work on Sundays. It all depends on how much trust we put in our phones. I personally always force the change before I go to bed if I'm working the next day now (was late once).

But if you force the change your phone will still automatically change itself.

You can turn off auto update, well at least you can with every phone I've owned. Although more modern ones have just had the option to turn DLS on/off when you choose the time zone.

Depends on the OS perhaps? I'm reasonably sure that in Nokia Symbian, the Automatic time update setting is for time sync via the network operator or something like that.

Mine is set to off and it handles daylight saving correctly. Never have to touch it. If I changed the time on my Nokia N8 before I went to bed then that would really mess things up, because when the time for NZDT -> NZST change comes, it might try to adjust the clock an extra hour (as well as the one that I set before I go to bed).

That is network controlled Auto update not if it's built into the OS
