BlackBerry Daylight Savings mix-up


Broken ClockWe haven’t had any problems up here, but there are reports that this last weekend a lot of folks had their BlackBerry clocks automatically set back an hour for daylight savings. The problem is that back in ’05, a bill was passed to change the DST date to the first weekend of November, rather than the last weekend of October, but the change wouldn’t happen until now so that device manufacturers could adjust their automated settings. The long and short is, if your device was made before then, you might have gotten a little mixed up. A bit late now, maybe, but you can fix the problem so it doesn’t happen again next year by downloading a patch over the air available at mobile.blackberry.com
