Ever since Sunday when Daylight Savings Time changed my phone has been changing time zones on its own. I keep entering Dallas USA and the correct time and a few hours later it's showing Chicago USA and 1 hour later. It's messing up my alarm clock more than anything but it's becoming very annoying.

Is there a way to keep it from updating if it's the carrier who's doing this?

Check these settings:
Settings > General > Date and Time > Set Automatically
Settings > General > Location Services > On

If they are already set like that and you're having problems, then you could toggle Set Automatically off.

I found the problem. I DON'T HAVE the "Automatically" setting! It's not there after redsn0w JB.

I thought it was Sunday when Daylight Savings Time changed but the problem must have started on Friday when I did the JB and I hadn't noticed it yet. I turned on Location Services so maybe it won't change me from Dallas to Chicago, we'll see today.

I put in Los Angeles and it took off 2 hours so I put Orlando and it added an hour. I'm just going to leave Chicago and set it with an hour less than what it's showing to see if it changes anything.

I was about to mention the calendar. Date is good but all apointments in Outlook 2007 are showing up 1 hour later on the iPhone than what is showing on the computer. This is hapenning on single and recurrent appointments. Everything is shifted 1 hour later. Appointment on laptop says 7:00 am but it's showing up at 8:00 am on phone. I even synced and told iTunes to replace the entire calendar on the phone and it still all shows up shifted 1 hour. WEIRD!

These suggestions might seem random but it worked for me when I was stuck in a predestination paradox.
1. Remove and replace SIM.
2. Reset Network settings.
3. Fly through two time zones.
4. Get Chick-fil-A to go and watch "A Benihana Christmas" Office episode.

I got it working ! The iPhone has two separate time zone settings. The one used for the entire iPhone is at Settings then General then Date and Time then Time Zone. I found another one at Settings then Mail, Contacts, Calendars then Time Zone Support. If you have Time Zone Support ON but in a different time zone than the other one then it all goes crazy.

I also found out that Outlook 2007 has time zones in it for the Calendar too so I just changed everything to the same city and time zone and bingo ! All's good.... up to now.

Hope this helps anyone out there with the same issue.
