Smartphones and the DST Change

Posted by Aaron West at 2:02 PM in Mobile & Devices

I've been working this week on patching several ColdFusion servers so they are unaffected by the early switch to Daylight Savings Time occurring March 11. I didn't think my Treo 700p would need an update but I'm apparently wrong as today Verizon pushed an SMS message to me indicating I needed to update.

I visited the URL provided by Verizon and sure enough the Treo 700p - as well as many other smartphones - require an update. Fortunately, if you aren't using a smartphone you do not need to update as your phones time only receives information from the Verizon service.

If you use a BlackBerry, Treo, Motorola Q, or some other smartphone on Verizon's network, you should check out the link below.
