I'm with 2degrees as well and I just found this morning that my phone has not reset itself from daylight saving I had to do it manually, what gives with that?

My Vodafone didn't change either. I wanted to move to 2D but their equivalent pay monthly to the on account I have was going to cost me double what I pay with Vodafone

Well done Vodafone, here's hoping others can take a leaf outta your book.

As a result, I have an app on my phone (ClockSync (https://market.android.com/details?id=ru.org.amip.ClockSync)) to sync the clock with NTP, and the phone takes care of the timezone / DST settings itself.

Mind you, the time it took to set all that, you could have done a manually and annually and saved time plus give finger some good exercise each year.

XT did the time switcherooni perfectly. :p

Good on Vodafone though, that's great news.

I guess that the OP means NZ pay rates are now lower than Egypt's.

No worries, the new national cycleways will set us back on our feet ;)
