Time display on phone handsets is an hour behind.

Grasshopper

Time displayed on cordless handsets is an hour behind, showing PST while we are currently PDT.
On Telus network, the handsets pick up their time from the network on first phone call activity after a time change ( daylight savings time on/off ).

Is it possible that Shaw has not adjusted their home phone network in BC ( Surrey ) to reflect daylight savings time?

Interesting, thanks!
I would have thought the CallerID system would transmit the time along with the calling phone number.

I may be wrong, and the system may have changed as it has been a few years since I had Shaw home phone.

hi I'm in Burnaby bc  my phone with shaw is showing correct time. And yes shaw has the same system where after the first call it updates the time automatically. Sorry about your phone, maybe try unplugging the power to the phone so the time is lost then plug in again and get someone to call you but don't answer until 2 rings and caller id has kicked in.  good luck

Maybe it does, but my UNIDEN base-unit must be ignoring that information. The CID and buttons on my wireless handsets show the time programmed into the handset.  So, after changing the batteries in the handset, and at start/end of Daylight Saving Time, I must reset the date/time on each handset.

> don't answer until 2 rings and Caller-ID has kicked in

Most "modern" phones do not make a sound on the first "ring". Instead, they receive the Caller-ID after the first ring, and display it when playing a sound on the second ring.  I have a POTS (Plain Old Telephone Set) in one room -- it always sounds on the first "ring", which drives people crazy when I pick up my UNIDEN phone *before* it sounds the second "ring".
