    Yes I do, that is why I found it curious that I did not get DST updates
    without turning the phone on and off.
    Now I have a new toy: a Swatch watch which automatically tracks WWV
    stations and other unspecified satellite or cell tower sources to
    handle DST, time zones, and so forth.  It did not work too well as I
    crossed America by air yesterday until right before I landed - then the
    time zone changed from Eastern to Mountain.  I need more technical
    details about how it obtains position information (no GPS in it).
