PC Suite : "2 hours" error in Calendar vs. handset (Nokia 6086) calendar

Hi everyone

 

Everything on my laptop (PC Suite) Calendar is 2 hours earlier than on my handset's Calendar!

 

For example:

a) If I enter an appointment (using PC Suite's "Calendar" function) to start at, for example, 4pm... and then SYNCH with my mobile (a Nokia 6086), on the handset's Calendar the appointment will start 2 hours earlier - at 2pm!!

 

b) Similarly, If I enter an appointment (on the mobile) to start at, for example, 4pm... and then SYNCH, on my laptop (in PC Suite's "Calendar") the appointment will start 2 hours later - at 6pm!!

 

Can anyone help me?  Thank you in advance for your ideas!

I also have this problem.

 

I always suspect a two hour error in calendar software to be a result of a bad module used to convert 24 hour time (military time) to 12 hour AM and PM (and vias versa).  My phone and PC are set to display military time.  Is this true of your use?

 

If so, it would explain the apparent rarity of  this error being reoported.

 

I have the same model.

I'm going to look into this... will change my time to "military", and try synching again - thanks for the tip!

Hello Cricfancy... changing my handset to using 24-hour time has solved the problem.  Thanks for your suggestion!
