Windows Mobile 6.1 DST Issue

I am disappointed in both Verizon Wireless and Microsoft. After I recently wrote about the windows mobile 6.1 update for the verizon wireless smt5800, which overall, I was very pleased with, I found out that they did not patch the Daylight Savings Time adjustment issue in Windows Mobile 6.1 . How stupid is that?

For those of you that do not know, windows mobile 5 and 6 devices needed to be patched due to the change in dates for DST updates. Well, it turns out that they did not fix it in Windows Mobile 6.1 either. So in short, if you receive a calendar request from your exchange server, accept it, and get back in the office and see that your calendar is one hour off, you need to patch your phone.

Go here to get the patch.
