So, no thread about how everyone's phone didn't change automatically for DST then? No?

My Wizard never ever changed automatically. Everyone elses did. I had a thread with myself on xda-developers years ago about how mine didn't change its time automatically. People told stories of warning messages, or it just doing it, but no, mine didn't.

So as I went to sleep at 12 last night I though to myself "ah, new phone, Windows Mobile 6, surely it'll change the time by itself by now!"

Woke up, no dice. Same time. Had to manually put it forward.

Was it just me?!

Yes lozzd, I think it's just you! :D

My MDA Vario III and (packed up ready to sell) MDA Vario II changed automatically, so did my (back-up phone) Sony Ericsson K800i.

My other half's new Vario III didn't update either. My WM6 upgraded Hermes which didn't update when the clocks went back, did.

You'd think they could fix this!

My V1615, running the original HTC Rom, did absolutely nothing on Sunday morning - I had to move it forward myself. I couldn't even find any option about BST or daylight saving anywhere?

It's not just you.

My HTC Kaiser is set up as UK timezone, but didn't change. I had to manually alter it on Sunday. Even weirder, 2 weeks ago when the US DST kicked in, I got a message to say it was adjusting for DST, but the clock didn't actually change.

My WM6.1 (TLR ROM) Vario III updated automatically, but my wife's WM6.0 (Black Majik ROM) Vario II did not. Is there actually an option for enabling automatic updating (like in Windows)? I couldn't find one in the Settings.

Mine did not change as well.

As time goes by, the more disappointed I am becoming with my Kaiser's ROM (and therefore performance!). Stuff that I could do with earlier models I can't do with this without it crashing. I wish HTC would pull its finger out of its cybernetic bum and make a stable functional PPC phone!

No. But I will now. Pffft.

Begs the question as to why, exactly, this wasn't auto-updated through the Mobile Windows Update?!?!

because operators and manufacturers are too stupid to use windows update...its a brilliant platform that nobody can be arsed to implement

Those of you whose time zones didn't update correctly- have you checked to see what is selected in Settings/Phone/Time Zones?

If ticked, this forces the phone to obtain its settings from the network, but very often these are set incorrectly. I have this setting unchecked on my Orbit2, and the whole tab disabled on my Ameo, and both updated correctly during Saturday night.

I had the setting unchecked, but no update. Makes me wonder if it should have been checked - but from what you're saying, apparently not.

And this has nothing to do with the fact that this only applies to countries (ie the US) where they have yet again changed when they are going to introduce DST. This update will have no effect in the UK.

Are your time zones and regional settings all set to the UK (GMT London, Dublin)?

Every time the clocks change we have the same problem. Most people's change automatically but some people's don't. I don't think we've ever got to the bottom of it either....

That windows update applies to the different times of DST for Americans. I am not American, nor do I live in America.

This is amazing! Exactly the same response as I had last year. I can't see what I do to two phones, three ROMs that means I don't get updating times! It's purely amazing.

Nope, I'm with T-mobile too. I was with O2 before. O2 I had the HTC Wizard, with two different WM5 roms, and T-mobile with the Kaiser and WM6.

Never once changed the time. :D
