Thousands Of Mobile Phones Reset Their Internal Clocks

AFTER last weekend’s false start, residents of the southeastern states are looking forward to an hour longer with their heads on the pillow tonight with the end of daylight saving.

The official wind-back in NSW, the ACT, Victoria and Tasmania will happen at 3am tomorrow (AEDT).

Western Australia set the clocks back six days ago, after a three-year trial of the time change, giving the state a week with a three-hour gap with the southeastern states.

Daylight saving was extended this year to synchronise changeover dates around the country. NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT are now aligned. Queensland and the Northern Territory do not observe daylight saving.

Thousands of mobile phones, PDAs and BlackBerrys confused their owners by automatically resetting their internal clocks last weekend, causing people to miss appointments and plane flights.

On May 17, West Australians will be asked in a referendum: “Do you want daylight saving operating from the last Sunday in October through to the last Sunday in March?”

Three such referendums in Western Australia have failed since 1975.
