Hi,

I have to be up early in the morning. Does my android phone know about daylight savings in NZ? Will it adjust itself?

Cheers,

Matt

If you on XT or 2D then yes. From memory Vodafone does do Time updates. Not sure if Android has any DLS settings in it. Maybe it polls a time server somewhere..

As said, most likely on XT and 2degrees it will just get the time from the network and adjust accordingly...

Or so I hope. Let's see if the Milestone does it.

OK, so the upshot is that no-one really knows. I am on vodafone.

If the flight I am crewing from Wellington in the morning is late out, do you think I should blame Google for the OS or Vodafone for the lack of time updates Laughing I somehow think neither excuse will fly (if you excuse the pun). It looks like it will be a manual alarm clock. It is just like Y2K all over again!

Cheers,

Matt.

I was wondering this too, just set my alarm on my XT desire, it seemed to take into account daylight savings (-1hour) when it told me how long it was till it was going to go off.
Try testing that.

Android does it nicely. It did it last year on my trusty HTC magic on Vodafone :)

Interestingly while we on this subject... Does Vodafone do time update OTA? Or if not, any reason why they are not?

Its that time of the year again.  Android and other smart mobile OSes has their own timezone data, so will adjust accordingly.  OSes that doesn't keep timezone data, and therefore no DST, can get the time from the network.

Well done my Vodafone Android phone. You automatically updated for daylight savings. I should have had more faith!

I would like to know this as well. Seems pretty poor service to not correct your customers phones.
Even when they return home from holiday would be great to have the time set back to NZ time.

Worked fine for me on my N1. I don't have the phone sync'ed to the network (used to be VF, now 2D) because anyway for VF, there were a minute out from the atomic clock :-)

But Android updated itself and now the TZ is NZDT GMT+13

Dave, the correct timezone for daylight savings is GMT + 13.

Cheers, Matt.

Well, here is the thing... The HTC is correct. If you change the timezone to +12 and adjust the hour forward by one then any appointmens you create now, falling outside the DST will get the wrong time when you adjust the clock back one hour.
