iPhone calendar sync

Sometimes, things are just backwards. I’ve been trying to figure out why my 4PM scheduled conference call keeps showing up on the iPhone at 2PM. Then it hit me that the call was scheduled by someone in California. Outlook supports time zones, so it shows it as 4PM central.

The iPhone has a switch that says “time zones” and I had it turned on. Silly me. Support time zones apparently means “ignore the time zone conversions and display in the time zone of the appointment rather than in the time zone you care about.” Or something like that.

Anyhow, this is figured out and I’m back in the happy zone.
