Abstract

Telecommunication product with roaming fea- ture can operate over different countries with differ- ent time zones. The time preset for the telecommu- nication product, be a pager or cellular phone, has to be changed when you cross to a different time zone. Two current options are available to change the time, either change manually by the user or auto- matically change by the time data received from local service provider. In the first option, the user has to manually change the time and therefore this option is inefficient and troublesome. In the second option, the user is forced to use the standard time available from the service provider and the change is not instantaneous.
