Dear Sprint; Please update your time servers.

As you may know, I hate daylight savings. It doesn't save anything anymore, if it ever did.

And it's a royal pain.

It's particularly painful to me, since my cell phone is my alarm clock.

And apparently, Sprint / Nextel has still not clued in to the fact that the
United States Congress has changed the dates on which clocks are changed

It is particularly irksome, since I have duly informed Sprint / Nextel of this fact twice a year, every year, since 2007.

Yes, I know I could change the option to take my cell phone off of network server time, and rely on its internal time clock. Unfortunately, the cell phone then lags a minute or two eventually, since it is not synched with a reliable time source.

For $100+ a month, Sprint can find somebody with a clue to update the time zone data on their time servers!

If anybody reads this post and has any contacts at Sprint that can resolve this, please feel free to contact me.

It has recently occurred to me that perhaps the time servers have the updated DB, while my handset is still lost in 2006 for a local copy thereof...
Sprint still sucks, mind you.
