What time is it?

If you are using a Treo 650 or 700 you are more than likely have no clue when that meeting was today. Turns out there was a major glitch with the daylight savings time switch yesterday.

Palm says, “After Daylight Saving Time begins (2:00 a.m., first Sunday in April), you may notice that some appointments in your smartphone’s Calendar appear one hour early. For example, if you had scheduled a dental appointment for 9:00 a.m. Monday, it would appear on your smartphone as 8:00 a.m. Monday; the same appointment will also appear incorrectly in Outlook on your desktop PC as 10:00 a.m. Monday. In addition, full-day appointments may appear one day early.”

There are 2 fixes:
Method One (Preferred): If you’d rather not delete events, and ensure that any new events you create on your smartphone will be daylight-savings aware, you can turn off Network Time and manually correct the times of your appointments.

Method Two (Alternate Method): To correctly display the appointments that still appear one hour early, delete those appointments in Outlook and on your smartphone, and re-create them in Outlook.
