Did you need the time zone for an event for the time zone that you were in? PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.3), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 8GB

On my Blackberry, in addition to the city, it would list "GMT+/-x" so I could pick the right time without knowing the cities. On the iPhone there's no list to pick from, you have to start typing a name for anything to show up. If you don't know which cities are in the time zone you want you are stuck.
I had several appointments that I made for this time zone in Outlook that were synced correctly, but then were wrong when I manually set the time.15" MacBook Pro 2.4GHz 4GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.2)

+When off, events will display according to the time zone of your current location.+
If Time Zone Support is off, and you have Set Automatically on for the Date & Time, setting the time zone for calendar events shouldn't be necessary - if you set up a calendar event for a date & time where you will be or your location.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2008 12:25 PM (in response to Allan Sampson)Hi Allan,
I have a similar issue with my iPhone, however I am in the -1 UTC zone, and we NEVER have DST. I moved here for work and I still have my iPhone that I bought in the US.
I also tried this setting but whenever I synce with Outlook it still changes the appointment date.
If I create an item on iCal on the phone, on my Outlook it shows up an hour early, and an hour later if I create the item on Outlook. It is very annoying.
This is really a problem with ALL Apple products. Apple REALLY needs to fix this, as it doesn't make any sense to not have the option to select UTX -x/+x time formats.
I think the only way to fix this would be to edit the OS X of the iPhone and insert the timezone manually in the code.Windows Vista
