I have a Cinguar 8125 Windows Mobile phone. It is set to sync with the exchange server wirelessly. Everything works fine except the time of the appointments on the phone is one hour earlier than the actual time. Doesn't matter if the appointment was created in outlook or on the phone. There is a one hour difference (the phone is one hour earlier). An appointment that is at 8am on outlook (2003) shows up at 7am on the phone. The phone, the exchange server (2003) and my desktop computer are set to the same time zone (Central, US ). The daylight savings time box is checked on the exchange server and my desktop. Thanks

I don't know what exactly you mean by "sync with time" Foad. However, i checked to see that the exchange server is not syncing with any time service and neither is the phone. It is my understanding that Cingular does not provide this service. (I know that sprint does)

Unfortunatly all i see under Settings->Phone are the phone, Services, Network, Pin2 and More tabs. And none of those tabs has anything similar to "Timezone".  By the way, I forgot to mention that i have the upgraded firmware on my phone (Although i doubt that it has anything to do with it)

that's strange... try this fix for someone else:

Ok... I think I solved the problem for me.  Sadly it was user error.  I noticed this morning that the timezone on my pda was set to "GMT -6 Cent. America", not "GMT -6 Central US".   Needless to say, central america does not have daylight savings time, but central US does.
