Is anyone using OS X and a new iPhone 3G able to tell me if they are having this problem:

Several of my contacts in my iMacs Address Book have birthdays entered;

When these sync through to the iPhone, in Contacts the birthday is one day later;

However the birthday is correct in iCal on the iMac AND in Calendar on the iPhone...

RSVP!

Check your Time Zone settings in your Mac and iPhone (Settings / Mail, Calendar, Contacts...)

manhinli: Check your Time Zone settings in your Mac and iPhone (Settings / Mail, Calendar, Contacts...)

Thanks - I should have said that I've done that:

iMac > System Preferences > Date & Time > Time Zone = Wellington - New Zealand
iPhone > Settings > General > Date & Time > Time Zone = Auckland, New Zealand
iPhone > Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Time Zone Support > Time Zone Support = ON
iPhone > Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Time Zone Support > Time Zone = Auckland, New Zealand

I have exactly the same problem, and have done so since iPhone software 1.02. The problem exists on our two iPhone 3G's as well (syncing from different Mac's).

Would love a solution!

The calendar is correct, just the contact is out by one day.

I'm thinking there is a long standing timezone related bug. I see MobileMe thinks New Zealand is GMT+12.45 which I am sure is not correct!
