Vodafone has enabled NITZ in their mobile network. If you have a mobile handset with NITZ support it will be able to now have their date/time set by the network.

Here's a list of supported handsets (Wikipedia reference, may not be complete)

It's propably fairly moot with smartphones making up an
ever increasing share of handsets

But for legacy devices it's useful

freitasm: Actually NITZ is supported by most smartphones these days (check the list) and not all smartphones support NTP so NITZ is the way to go.



Yawn. There is no need for NITZ, even Windows Phone supports NTP now!

Ah nope it hasn't because I just checked on a old 2013 model Nokia phone with Auto Update Of Date and time enabled and it still isn't setting the time if after restarting the phone.

freitasm: Removed a bad attempt at trolling.


So you'd have left a good attempt at trolling then?
