  • Daylight Saving Time and your PDA or Smartphone

    Changes to the dates when Daylight Saving Time (DST) starts and ends could cause problems for your Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, BlackBerry or Palm, causing these devices to display incorrect times from when DST begins to when it ends.

    Most likely any issue involving time on QuoTrek can be fixed with a patch. Microsoft, RIM and Palm have posted patches and instructions to address this situation; so when DST comes around your handheld or smartphone will alter the time correctly on the proper dates, downloads and instructions can be found on their respective Web sites.
